President Trump is reportedly enraged over an anonymous New York Times op-ed written by a senior member of his administration.

The piece describes the lengths to which senior members of the President’s team go to protect the country from Trump’s worst inclinations. The Times piece portrays the actions of the official as in service to the country – putting the nation before politics or loyalty to a leader the writer sees as amoral and unprincipled.

What do you think of what the official’s doing? Is he or she serving the country by undermining parts of the President’s agenda? Is it morally wrong for someone to serve then go against a President whose agenda has been approved by voters? Call in at 866-893-5722.
