A senior White House official published an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times that revealed President Donald Trump's "half-baked" leadership style.

On Tuesday, Republican strategist Steve Schmidt told MSNBC's Chris Matthews that the author of the article must come forward in order to have a full impact.

Schmidt unloaded on Trump and said the GOP needs to hold him accountable for his "corrupt" and "vile" behavior.

"We are in an hour of national emergency in this country, and that is evident by the president's erratic behavior that we see in public every day," Schmidt said.

He added, "We know that this president is amoral. He is mentally and intellectually unfit for his office."

"What I would say back to the author of this op-ed, is that this resistance inside the administration, whoever they are — the best of them, the toughest, the hardest, the most credible must come forward into the light," he said.

"They must take the full step and tell the American people the truth," he said.
