President Donald Trump’s top trade adviser has become obsessed with identifying the anonymous author of a New York Times op-ed and book revealing chaos and dysfunction inside the White House.

Navarro has singled out at least one likely suspect who, as the author described themselves, is a “senior administration official,” and has compiled a written report for Cipollone, two sources told the website.

We're all going to know someone who has died of the coronavirus when this is over. The tragic news is all over Facebook and Twitter already.

Everyone has friends and acquaintances who have the virus, family members who have died, favorite musicians or actors and friends of friends who are sick and dying.
