Watergate's Woodward says 'Times' Trump op-ed not up to his standards

U.S. President Donald Trump

I like him very much", Trump is quoted as saying in Woodward's book "Fear: "Trump in the White House" The book has stirred a fresh row over its description of Trump as chaotic, mercurial and uninformed. The Trump White House has shocked him more than any of the eight others he's covered, he added, because Trump fundamentally doesn't understand that national security is more than just the USA military. Woodward made this revelation in an interview on The New York Times' "The Daily" podcast.

The book also depicts staffers and advisers as condemning the president behind his back and actively working to stymie some of his actions, even hiding documents from Trump.

During the meeting, according to Woodward's book, Trump said: "Pakistan isn't helping us".

The White House says Camp David, the USA president's country retreat, offers the commander-in-chief "solitude, tranquility, and a place to host foreign leaders".

Trump and several members of his administration were quoted have called the book "fiction and fabrication". While he said the book contained "inaccuracies", as Axios reports, he wasn't specific about what the book supposedly got wrong.

Asked if the Trump showed signs of mental defect, Woodward said "my job here is not to psychoanalyze, it's to describe what happened".

Barack Obama encourages people to vote: "This is not Coachella"
Obama campaigned for congressional Democrats from California on Saturday, a day after he excoriated Trump in a speech in IL . The president responded to Obama's critical speech of his presidency during a fundraising speech in Fargo, North Dakota.

In his book, he claims that Donald Trump was ignored by his Defence Secretary after telling him to "f****** kill" Syrian president Bashar al-Assad following the chemical attack on civilians a year ago. Since excerpts were released last week, Trump has accused Woodward of making up quotes attributed to him and others. "CNN will definitely have you on there because they love to trash the president", Eric Trump said.

"Time and time again people will deny things", Woodward says.

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote in a tweet Monday.

But Woodward insisted his book was accurate and said he carefully vetted each description included in the book.

Still, Woodward's book has fed talk that Trump could seek to replace Kelly and Mattis.

Porter did not contest having described his job as one third focused on steering the president away from unsafe ideas, and the White House as perpetually "walking along the edge of the cliff". Dems can't stand losing. "People closest to him do not trust him", he added, "And the impulse-driven presidency is something that the more people know, the more they realize we're at risk". The Associated Press, a newswire, wrote an entire story on the three hugs Modi gave Trump. Trump himself has shown little willingness to let Woodward's claims go by the wayside, tweeting the famed Watergate journalist "is a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the midterms".
