The writer indicated that he or she is a political appointee, not a career civil servant - a class of federal employees that some Trump allies have long derided as a "deep state" set on undermining him. He called the opinion piece "sad".

A spokesman for Vice President Mike Pence said that he "puts his name on" expressions of his opinion.

Republican senators said Thursday that a nameless Trump administration official's op-ed criticizing the president would backfire by emboldening Trump and proving to his strong supporters that the establishment is seeking to stop his agenda.

Naturally, Twitter wanted to know who might be behind such an explosive story and went to work scouring the op-ed for answers. The writer questions the president's morality and fitness to serve.

Trump has spoken and written about the piece several times since its publication Wednesday.

The Times op-ed, and Woodward's book, which is to be published next week, followed many news articles during Trump's 19-month presidency that have depicted turbulence inside the White House under his leadership. "If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!"

But Mrs. Trump struck a different note than her husband, prefacing her criticism by proclaiming the importance of first-amendment freedoms. He called it "a disgrace" and the writer "gutless" during an event with sheriffs at the White House on Wednesday afternoon. He called it "gutless" and launched into an extended criticism of the newspaper.

Mr Trump has reportedly demanded that aides find out who wrote the piece. The official is "probably here for all the wrong reasons", Trump continued, and then vowed that he would win re-election in 2020.

They decided against the move, fearing a constitutional crisis, but Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren took to the airwaves on Thursday to revive the idea. The piece reports, "So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until - one way or another - it's over".

That would be a problem for the Times, partly through no fault of its own, said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, communications professor and director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania. "He is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people". She said the writer should resign from the administration.

"What's really going on here is that Woodward's book, and the contents of what is in the anonymous piece in The New York Times is that those closest to the president of the United States are saying we must save the country from the president", Berstein said.

It's a term used loosely around the White House. The book is set for release next Tuesday. So do the swipes and sneering at him that slip, nearly unconsciously at times, into news stories that according to the paper's tradition are supposed to contain facts, not opinion.
