Melania Trump on Thursday said the anonymous author of an explosive New York Times op-ed alleging her husband is unfit for office is “sabotaging” the country. “To the writer of the op-ed — you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions,” she told CNN.
“People with no names are writing our nation’s history,” she said. “Words are important, and accusations can lead to severe consequences. If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves.”
