Chaos in the White House Monaem Sarker

The New York Times made the rare move of publishing an anonymous op-ed from a senior White House official claiming to be among a network of personnel protecting the country from Trump.

Woodward chronicles Defense Secretary Jim Mattis not only comparing Trump's behavior and knowledge to that of "a fifth- or sixth-grader", but disobeying direct orders from the president.

Woodward's book is a tragicomic catalogue of life in a White House lorded over by an apparently unmoored president, even as top officials such as former economic adviser Gary Cohn snatched potentially destructive documents off the president's desk so he wouldn't sign them.

Woodward, asked on Monday on NBC's "Today" show about their denials, said, "They are not telling the truth".

Watergate's Woodward says Times Trump op-ed not up to his standards
Short parts of Fear: Trump in the White House were published Tuesday in The Washington Post . Others argued that the word "lodestar" could have been included to throw people off.


While some Trump critics have said the revelations in Woodward's book suggest the president is mentally unfit for office, Woodward would not go there. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything.

But the idea that there is a core of "adults in the room", as described by the op-ed writer, subverting the President's authority and wielding for themselves the power granted to the commander-in-chief during an election season should also be a troubling one, since it raises questions about the integrity of America's democratic system itself. "This is the worst job I've ever had".

Woodward, the longtime Washington Post reporter who with Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal in the Nixon administration, said in an interview on Sunday sounded the alarm about the administration by warning "people better wake up to what's going on".

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

Huawei smartphones use advanced technologies such as AI to optimize the performance of hardware including CPU, GPU, and NPU. Third, benchmarking companies have other methods to test a device's actual expected capabilities, which is a good thing.


After the op-ed was published, President Trump tweeted, "TREASON?"

Nixon was a mean-spirited man who took revenge on his enemies but compared to Mr Trump, he was bold, realistic, ambitious, thoughtful in foreign policy and - it nearly chokes me to write this - a liberal progressive compared to today's Republican party.

"If the president had a legislative agenda then the lack of confidence among Republicans in his leadership would imperil that legislative agenda", Ponnuru said.

The White House can rage against Woodward's book all it wants. "The incidents are not anonymous, it gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often the president himself and what he says". "It's to describe what happened on specific dates, in specific moments". The @nytimes should be ashamed and so should the person who wrote the false, illogical, and gutless op-ed. As the report noted, it took quite a bit of convincing for Trump not to hit "send" on the tweet.

Trump also attacked the book as "a Joke ― just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults". "We're going to be much more measured, '" The Post writes.
