The author of an anonymous article about the “resistance movement” in the White House revealed his identity

Miles Taylor, a former senior US Department of Homeland Security official, admitted on Wednesday that he was the anonymous author of a controversial article about a group of “resistance” to President Donald Trump in the White House staff, which was published by the New York Times in 2018, and also and the subsequent book “Warning” criticizing Trump.

Miles Taylor has decided to finally reveal his identity in order to urge Americans to vote against Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential elections.

Taylor, who ran the Department of Homeland Security staff until 2019, wrote a controversial, unattributed article calling Trump a “immoral, petty and ineffective” executive. He revealed his identity on Wednesday in a statement posted to Medium, a popular online publishing platform.

“We [граждане США] one must decide how the behavior [Трампа] justifies his continued tenure, and we have to make an important decision, because our choice … will affect our future for many years, – writes Taylor, – which is why he does not deserve a second term, and we do not deserve to go through that again the same. “

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnani called Taylor “a liar and a coward who chose anonymity over action and leaking information over leadership.”

Taylor, who described himself in an anonymous New York Times article as a member of the “resistance” movement in the Trump administration, also publicly criticized the president.

The article and the book that followed, called A Warning, caused a short burst of attention to the issues raised by the “anonymous”, but soon several former Trump associates published their books, which contained both criticism and praise of President. However, the authors of these books did not hide their identities.

Alyssa Farah, the White House’s director of communications, reacted to Miles Taylor’s admission of a tweet with many frustrated emojis. Many administration officials suspected for months that Taylor was the author of the controversial publication and book.

“I rolled my eyes so hard that I almost fell,” Farah wrote in her tweet. “To paraphrase Andy Warhol: in the future, everyone can become a high-ranking administration official for 15 minutes.”
