Woodward’s Biggest Takeaway? People Closest to Trump ‘Do Not Trust Him’

  • New book alleges chaos in Trump White House

The book portrays Trump as an ill-informed and dishonest president and the West Wing staff as trying to minimize the damage.

Cohn did not detail his complaints with the book, telling Axios: "I am proud of my service in the Trump Administration, and I continue to support the President and his economic agenda". Trump's predictable attempts to do so last week, calling Woodward an idiot and a democratic operative and calling the book a fake book with fraudulent quotes in series of tweets and on-camera responses, rang more hollow than usual.

Woodward has consistently said he stands behind his reporting on Trump's actions.

Several prominent figures in the book have denied quotes that Woodward attributes to them.

Bob Woodward, the author of an explosive new portrayal of President Trump's White House, tells NPR that administration officials are denying his account out of "political necessity".

But, the president is no stranger to women accusing him of misdeeds. At least 19 women have publicly accused Trump of kissing them, touching them inappropriately or having an affair with him while he was married. Porter and other aides to the president stole documents off Mr. Trump's desk to keep him from signing them.

The White House has blasted the book, and Trump on Monday referred to it as a "scam".

Legendary journalist says a presidency is measured by what actually is done on the issues that affect people.




The op-ed was not the only thing on Trump's mind as he called around to advisers over the weekend, according to two people familiar with the conversations.

"We're doing this in order to prevent World War III", Defense Secretary Jim Mattis felt it necessary to inform him.

Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward told the BBC's Today Programme that the United States president had questioned security spending over South Korea, Europe and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops in a national council security meeting previous year.

Nothing of significance has emerged from the efforts to exploit Afghanistan's minerals, but Trump's Afghanistan-centric South Asia strategy, unveiled in August 2017, said the U.S. would stay with additional troops.

"When I heard about this, from notes of that NSC meeting - I've never heard anything like that", Woodward tells NPR.

At a White House press briefing, Sanders slammed the book "Fear", from veteran journalist Bob Woodward, as "careless and reckless".

"I don't know who it is", Woodward says.

Trump has already tweeted his low opinion of the book.
