Bob Woodward tells Stephen Colbert what shocked him most about Trump

"In Woodward's tape recordings from the president last month, Trump basically calls up saying, 'I wished we could have talked, why didn't you call him?'" CNN regular Brian Stelter told the host.

"I know my relationships with Deutsche Bank", Trump told Dowd, with Woodward writing that the president said the bank loved him and was always paid for its loans.

When Colbert brought up the fact that some people in the Trump administration were portrayed as types of heroes, Woodward replied, "You get to know these people, and you realize they're speaking from conscience, because they are anxious about Trump doing things". "I think that's a shame".

"I think there are people in there that he can trust, it's just - it's a much smaller group than I would like it to be", the president's eldest son said in an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America". "But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.

Bob Woodward, the investigative journalist whose reporting helped to bring down Nixon, offers a detailed account of the president's private rages and the extraordinary lengths to which his own staff have gone to stop Mr Trump acting according to his instincts.

Between excerpts from Bob Woodward's new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, and the New York Times op-ed from an anonymous administration official, people are starting to get a chilling glimpse of what it's really like inside the White House and just how little respect President Donald Trump commands from his staff. He said "these are political statements to protect their jobs".

Woodward goes on to say that he's "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on".

Donald Trump has threatened to write a "real book" about his presidency - hours before the latest "expose" on his administration hits the shops. And they're in a position, and. they should say whatever they want to say. The pair fought over Trump's desire to place tariffs on imports, and Cohn is said to have stolen documents off Trump's desk to prevent the president from pulling the USA out of major trade deals. But on NBC's "Today" program Monday, Woodward said that the denials issued by chief of staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis about quotes in his book are not truthful.

Del Potro was looking at having to become the first man since Pancho Gonzales in 1949 to win the USA title from two sets down. From 1-3, Del Potro won three games in a row and had Djokovic rattled. "I'm sad because I lose but I'm happy for Novak".


Trump attacked the book again on Monday, writing in a tweet that it was a "joke". "One person I interviewed nine times and transcripts of these conversations are 7 or 800 pages long, goes hundreds of pages", he added.

"I think historically speaking, that would be what happens", he said.

"And that's how you end the book", Colbert said. You then are in that position to verify it with others and get a level of truth that's not available on the record, unfortunately. Woodward gave us a book of characters that reinforced what we already know from media leaking rather than uncovering damning Watergate-like evidence.
