A former chief of staff to a secretary in the Trump administration revealed on Wednesday that he was the author in 2018 of an explosive anonymous forum denouncing the president's unpredictable behavior.

We do not owe the President silence. We owe him and the American people the truth, wrote Miles Taylor, former chief of staff to Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) John Kelly, in a column published on the Medium site and titled Why am I no longer anonymous.

The revelation of his identity has drawn strong criticism from the New York Times who published this text claiming that its author was a senior official of the government.

In his text published on Medium, Mr. Taylor claims to be a republican and to have wanted this president to be successful.

But too often in times of crisis I have seen Donald Trump prove he has no character and that his personal weaknesses have caused leadership failures that can be measured in loss of American life., explains the former official, who worked at the Ministry of Homeland Security from January 2017 to summer 2019.

He assures that many in the Trump administration were of the same opinion, but that the majority hesitated to speak out for fear of reprisals.

Visiting Arizona for an election campaign rally, Donald Trump joked about a guy who never worked in the White House and wrote a bogus book, believing that he should be the subject of legal proceedings.

Sarah Matthews, spokesperson for the White House, denounced a loser finished and criticized the New York Times for guaranteeing anonymity to a lower level manager.

In his text, Anonymous told how he and others struggled to fight from within against the worst inclinations from a president to leadership mean, impetuous and ineffective. He asserted in particular that the president harmed to good health the United States.

The dissemination of this anonymous forum had sparked controversy. Donald Trump had shouted at the treason and treated the anonymous author of loose.

One year later, Anonymous had published the book <q data-attributes = '{"lang": {"value": "fr", "label": "Français"}, "value": {"html": "A Warning"," text ":" A Warning "}} 'lang =" fr”>A Warning (A warning), shocking first-hand testimony about President Trump and his work, according to its editor.

Miles Taylor defended his choice of anonymity on Wednesday. I wanted the attention to be on the arguments themselves, rather than offering Donald Trump an opportunity to distracting attention with petty slurs and bird names.

With less than a week to go before the presidential election, he also called on Republican voters to put the country above the party and vote for Democrat Joe Biden.

I think Joe Biden's decency will bring us together where Donald Trump's dishonesty has torn us apart, he concludes.
