Donald Trump recently criticized an op-ed published in the New York Times that discusses how the anonymous author, a senior-level official in the White House, determines to thwart the Trump administration's morally compromised, political unstable agenda. (You can read it here: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opinion/trump-white-house-anonymous-resistance.html)
Trump used national security as a justification for his accusations, tweeting 'TREASON' and 'GUTLESS' multiple times to attack both the op-ed and the news outlet. His reaction highlights the junction of an ongoing debate about whether freedom of speech should be limitless if national security is compromised.
Do you think an article like this op-ed truly endangers national security? If you think so, should free speech still be allowed (ex. the Trump administration is thinking about filing a lawsuit against the NYT?) How does this impact our country's safety? What about the democratic principles we were founded upon?
