He told reporters, "It's not mine" and said The Times should not "have chosen to take a disgruntled deceptive bad actor's word for anything and put it in their newspaper".

Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway told CNN in an interview that Trump believes it's "somebody in national security" and said she doesn't think it is a White House official.

Woodward's is not the first unflattering investigation into Trump's White House, but it has been particularly resonant coming from the man who together with Carl Bernstein authored the Watergate expose that brought down Richard Nixon.

The explosive op-ed "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration", supposedly written by a "senior official", declared that numerous "senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of (Trump's) agenda and his worst inclinations".

"Supposing I have a high-level national security, and he has got a clearance, we talked about clearances a lot recently, and he goes into a high-level meeting concerning China or Russian Federation or North Korea or something", he said.

Trump said that it is a disgrace that somebody can publish an anonymous article. He suggested that the writer of the anonymous op-ed may have committed "TREASON?"

The president noted that all of the top administration officials have already denied authorship of the letter.

The only thing that has changed for The New York Times since publishing the controversial op-ed is that the paper is getting a lot more phone calls and emails.

While Woodward does not name his sources, he says he spoke with many people now or formerly working for Trump, discussing not just the president's personality but also major policy debates regarding North Korea and Afghanistan. He also unleashed on Trump's border wall, lack of emergency response after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and immigration laws.

"What's unfair, I don't mind when they write a book and they make lies because it gets discredited", Mr Trump said.

However, there were no details the identity of the individuals the White House aides have zeroed in on.
