The New York Times op-ed allegedly authored by an anti-Trump “senior official” within the Trump administration is a total hoax, according to conservative filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza.

“Just read the anonymous @nytimes article and it’s blindingly obvious it’s an in-house product written not by any Trump official but by a professional writer at the newspaper itself. This is the very definition of #FakeNews,” D’Souza tweeted Wednesday.

President Trump seemed to agree with D’Souza’s conclusion on Twitter, calling the op-ed a “gutless editorial” from a newspaper which was forced to apologize to its readers for delivering so much anti-Trump fake news during the presidential race.

“We have somebody in what I call the failing New York Times talking about he’s part of the resistance within the Trump administration,” Trump said at a meeting with a group of county sheriffs.

“This is what we have to deal with. And you know, the dishonest media … it’s really a disgrace. I will say this: Nobody has done what this administration has done in terms of getting things passed, in terms of getting things through.”
