Anonymous Writer Says ‘Trump Will Hear from Me, In My Own Name, Before the 2020 Election’
The anonymous of A Warning, a book about President Donald Trump’s White House, has suggested he or she will reveal their identity before the 2020 election. The writer took to Reddit for an Ask Me Anything (AMA) where they defended their anonymity and hinted at more to come. The author claims to be a White House insider.
“When debating whether or not to ratify the new Constitution, for instance, the Founding Fathers wrote public essays about the controversial subject and disguised their names under pseudonyms,” the author said.
“They hid their identities, not because they were scared to debate the issue openly, but because they wanted the public to focus on the message and not the messenger. They didn’t want their personal involvement to be a distraction. I’m not Alexander Hamilton or James Madison by any stretch, but I don’t believe they were cowards for using anonymity as a tool to refocus the debate. Trump thrives on distractions, and anonymity is a way to deprive him of his favorite weapon of mass distraction–personal attacks–and force the discussion to center on the substance, his character.”
“We’ve seen this on full display in the past few weeks, as the President has mercilessly attacked honorable public servants, from an anonymous whistleblower to aides on his own National Security Council. He can’t win on ideas, just on mud slinging and personal attacks. So he’s trying to use the long arm of government to unmask and undermine his critics.”
The author warned that things will get worse as Trump remains in office.
“The President has little handle on the day-to-day operations of the federal government and is trying to run our Administration with a skeleton crew,” the author wrote.
“He is hurtling between different controversies and ignoring important matters of state, abusing his power with some regularity, undercutting vital democratic institutions daily, and debasing the national dialogue tweet-by-tweet. We can expect this and much, much more if he is reelected. The last guardrails are coming off, and if reelected he will feel emboldened to follow those dangerous impulses to unknowable and alarming ends.”
The anonymous writer then claimed they would reveal their identity before the presidential election.
“Trump will hear from me, in my own name, before the 2020 election,” the author wrote.
