Tonight, the stunning letter published late today by the New York Times
ニューヨーク・タイムズ紙が驚くべき寄稿を掲載

from someone reportedly inside the Trump administration.
寄稿者は政権内部の人物だという

In an op-ed published in the New York Times, an unnamed
senior administration official writes,
論説記事で匿名の政府高官が以下のように述べた

“…many of the senior officials in his own administration
are working diligently from within
“政権内の高官の多くが懸命に努力している”

to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”
“大統領の政策の一部を阻む努力だ”

“…we believe our first duty is to the country,
and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to
the health of our republic.”
“我々が国を第一に考える一方 大統領は国に有害な行動を続けている”

The op-ed contends top administration officials
are trying to save the country from the president they serve.
そして数々の高官が大統領から国を守ろうとしているという

“Americans should know there are adults in the room.
And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.”
“大統領がしなくても 政権内の大人が正しいことをする努力をしている”
