President Donald Trump says he can identify up to five people who could have written the anonymous New York Times opinion piece criticizing his leadership.
But he declined to name names when asked for them during an interview Friday with North Dakota television station KVLY. Trump was in Fargo to campaign for GOP Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, AP reports.
Asked for his opinion on the identity of the senior administration official who the Times says wrote the piece, Trump says, "I could think of four or five, mostly people that either I don't like or don't respect."
He says the individual's identity will eventually become public.
Trump also claims the issue is "reverberating in the opposite direction." He says people think it's "disgusting" that the Times would publish such a piece.
