White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted out a message on Thursday urging those who want to know the identity of the “gutless coward” who wrote a scathing anonymous New York Times op-ed about President Donald Trump to call the publication’s opinion desk. Her message included the Times’ phone number.
“For those of you asking for the identity of the anonymous coward,” Sanders said, along with a note.
The message called the Times “complicit in this deceitful act.”

In a statement posted on her Twitter account, Sanders said she was tired of fielding questions about the identity of the anonymous Trump administration official who wrote an editorial arguing that Trump was unfit for office.
“If you want to know who this gutless loser is, call the opinion desk of the failing NYT,” Sanders wrote, before posting the phone number. “They are the only ones complicit in this deceitful act. We stand united together and fully support our President Donald J. Trump.”
