The author is the same person who wrote an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times last year as a “senior official in the Trump administration” where they claimed they were part of a “resistance” in the Trump administration and that the president “continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.”
The author made the remarks during an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on Reddit on Tuesday. The moderators of the subreddit said they were told by the book’s publishers that the person answering questions on Tuesday was the author of A Warning.
During the lengthy discussion—which touched on what to expect if Trump wins in 2020 and whether proceeds of the book will be donated, among other things—the author was asked why they “have so little integrity” and why they will not “come out publicly and speak?”
That’s when the A Warning author declared that Trump will be hearing from them ahead of the 2020 election.
“Trump will hear from me, in my own name, before the 2020 election,” they wrote on Tuesday.
In response to another question, the author said they would reveal their identity in the future.
