Taylor took issue with those policies when he wrote an anonymous New York Times op-ed in September 2018, saying that he and “like-minded colleagues” were working to “thwart” the president’s agenda. The Times said it was taking a “rare step” of publishing the op-ed without identifying the writer, whom it described falsely as a “senior official” in the Trump administration. CNN allowed Taylor to keep his job at the network despite the fact that he lied on air to host Anderson Cooper about not being the anonymous Trump critic.
“Miles Taylor was always a neocon,” Will Chamberlain, editor of Human Events, said in reaction to the supposedly damning Trump list. “He had no business being in the Trump administration.”
It’s funny that he thinks this makes him look good

Many other observers reacted similarly, including one who tweeted, “So getting out of wars was considered illegal by this guy.” Another said, “You mean he’s against law and order?” Author Mike Cernovich summed up the reaction of Trump supporters to Taylor’s list in one word: “And?”
Lmao he's using the fact trump wanted out of Afghanistan and Syria to attack him. Oh no!!!

Wait until you read the last few points. I can't tell if he's just taking Trump's jokes literally or making shit up.

Anti-Trump camp took the opposite view, thanking Taylor for coming forward, though some faulted him for not doing it sooner and others asked for corroborating evidence. Another Twitter commenter said the allegations were “exactly in line with everything we’ve heard out of his mouth for years.”
. @MilesTaylorUSA holy sh*t, I really have to ask, WHY did you wait so long? Truly, when impeachment happened, why didn't you come forward then, with receipts, to the house intell, why??

Truly shocking list. Wish there was some corroborating evidence for any of it.

So from either side’s point of view, Trump was essentially doing what he said he was going to do when he got elected in a constitutional republic that was supposedly designed to reflect the will of the people.
There is no reason to not believe ever word of this as it is exactly in line with everything we’ve heard out of his mouth for years. This is chilling.
