After more than two years, the author of a critical insider report about US President Donald Trump has revealed himself. Miles Taylor, ex-chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that he wrote the article that appeared in the New York Times in September 2018 under the pseudonym “Anonymous”. Trump is "a man without character". He hoped that other former government officials would "find their conscience when they get up tomorrow" and speak up too.

Taylor left the Trump administration in June 2019. In recent months he has appeared as a sharp critic of the president, and in the summer he expressed his support for the top Democratic candidate Joe Biden. Taylor denied that he was the author of the guest article in the “New York Times” and the subsequent, no less critical book called “A Warning” about events in the White House - even to his colleagues at the news channel CNN, with which he is under contract as an expert.

Trump calls for the attack

As chief of staff in the Department of Homeland Security, Taylor participated in numerous meetings with Trump in the White House, which, among other things, dealt with his controversial immigration policy. At that time, the president threatened to close them, for example in the face of a strong influx of migrants on the southern border with Mexico. When Taylor was still in office, the government enforced a policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in the neighboring country for their applications to be processed.

Trump and White House staff promptly dealt verbally against Taylor. "This guy is low scum, I don't even know him," said the president during a campaign appearance in Arizona. "I have no idea who he is, except that I saw him on TV a while ago." Trump also called Taylor a "bastard" and called for prosecution.

That Time Joe Biden Sarcastically Called Donald Trump 'Abraham Lincoln' And Trump Didn't Get It (Video)

  That Time Joe Biden Sarcastically Called Donald Trump 'Abraham Lincoln' And Trump Didn't Get It (Video) The second and final presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump was certainly a bit calmer than the previous one thanks to the addition of a mute button, but that doesn't mean that the 90-minute discussion went by without any major incidents. One of the biggest came late in the debate, when Biden mocked Trump by referring to him as "Abraham Lincoln." Trump did not appear to get the joke. "As far as my relationships with all people, I think I have great relationships with all people. I am the least racist in this room," Trump said directly to the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC News, who is a woman of color. And he wasn't content with saying it once.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was unfazed by Taylor's oath of disclosure. Even in episodes of the animated series "Scooby-Doo" he has seen more exciting revelations, wrote Meadows on Twitter. "What a monumental embarrassment."

In the critical article in the "New York Times", Taylor described himself as part of a secret "resistance" within the government, the aim of which was to protect the democratic institutions against Trump "misguided impulses" and undermine aspects of its agenda. The article enraged the President to such an extent that the White House began a feverish search for the author. Government officials accused each other.

“He doesn't deserve a second term”

In an article published on Medium.com on Wednesday, Taylor defended his decision to anonymously publish the guest article in the New York Times and his book. He wanted to achieve that the focus was on the arguments, not on him as an author. The country can no longer rely on bureaucrats to steer Trump on the right track, as he has long since sawed off most of them. "He didn't deserve a second term," continued Taylor. "And we didn't deserve to go through this."

Taylor's behavior also raised questions on CNN. Only in August, the presenter Anderson Cooper, who worked for the station, asked him directly whether he was "Anonymous". Taylor replied, “I'm wearing a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloween and the pandemic. So no. ”In a CNN interview Wednesday, Taylor stated he owed Cooper a beer and an apology. According to the broadcaster, Taylor will remain on board as an expert.

Reed Galen, co-founder of Republican-launched anti-Trump organization The Lincoln Project, tweeted that he didn't think Taylor was a hero. "He sat in these rooms, on these councils of power, and allowed the banality of evil to work," wrote Galen. "Heroism does not mean remaining silent until it is convenient and personally beneficial to stand up." (RND)

Biden Or Trump, Next 4 Years For Canada-U.S. Trade Will Be ‘Bumpy’ .
OTTAWA — Protectionism is rearing its head again in the United States, leaving the Trudeau minority government to figure out ways to work with an unpredictable neighbour. History has a funny way of repeating itself. It’s a scenario Canada found itself in during the early 1970s. Liberal prime minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau was in charge at the time when his U.S. counterpart, president Richard Nixon, turned his country inward to protect domestic industries during the last stretch of the Vietnam War.
