JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) spoke out about the anonymous New York Times op-ed on Thursday, saying that its author is “living in dishonesty” and should leave the administration if they don’t like how President Donald Trump runs things.

“A person who works in the administration serves at pleasure of the President,” he said at a press conference. “It’s a person who obviously is living in dishonesty. It doesn’t help the President. If you’re not interested in helping the President, you shouldn’t work for the President.”

Many of Trump’s top deputies have denied that they wrote the article, including Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.
