Several top US officials have denied that they are the author of a damning anonymous editorial that attacks President Donald Trump. The New York Times article, said to be written by a senior White House official, says Mr Trump’s appointees are trying to stifle his agenda. There is fierce speculation over who is responsible – with the vice-president among those to deny any involvement. Mr Trump has described the writer as “gutless” and the newspaper as “phony”. A spokesman for Vice-President Mike Pence has dismissed claims that he wrote the op-ed.
