The Phantom of the White House
WASHINGTON D.C. – September 6, 2018
“I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations…” - stated the sub-title of a highly-resonant article published in The New York Times yesterday.
What this article basically tells the audience is simply unbelievable: somebody in the White House, the heart of American politics, works against president-elect Trump, puts the sticks into the wheels of his bicycle and sabotages his orders. Moreover, this “somebody” has written this article for The New York Times himself: of course, on the terms of anonymity. And, in the mere beginning, this “anonymous warrior” says he isn’t the one of a kind:
“The dilemma — which he (Trump) does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations… I would know. I am one of them…”
From the very first sight such confession seems more like treason, than as an intention to serve your own country in a proper way. Just imagine, what the American public might think about the White House decision-making process, since they now know there is a group of “rats” inside of it. Who could they be: some well-hidden Democratic supporters, an inimical foreign country's agents of influence, the lobbyists of corporate interests? The more we think of this “group”, the more versions we get to.
Why does this “group of rats” act this way? What do they want from Trump, and why do they don’t like him that much, so they risk their careers and even freedom, committing true state treason? The author of The New York Times article states it’s all about the moral qualities of Donald Trump:
“The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making…”
And, surely, the conspirators are unsatisfied with the foreign policy vectors Trump’s Administration has been taking:
“In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations…”
