Trump book: Key sources turn heat on Bob Woodward

Trump book: Key sources turn heat on Bob Woodward

A month before Woodward's book on the inner workings of Trump's White House came out, the two had a one-on-one phone call. This, during a conversation on Afghanistan, during which Trump also said, according to Woodward, that Modi told him the U.S. had "gotten nothing out of Afghanistan". "It felt like we were walking along the edge of the cliff perpetually".

Trump tweeted that "the Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources".

Cohn suggested that would be detrimental to the fiscal and economic health of the USA, since printing vast amounts of money is thought to lead to inflation.

"'It is mostly anonymous sources in here, why should anyone trust you?"

"Forget about Reince", Trump reportedly said. You don't even have to pay any attention to him. Woodward himself issued a statement saying he stands by his reporting. Also, Woodward steers clear of Trump's controversial decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, thanks in part to the efforts of his ardently pro-Israel son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The writer said an invocation of the 25th amendment, a mechanism to remove a president deemed unfit for office, had been discussed. "I'll write the real book!" And so they steal papers off his desk. And he later took it.

Some of the people quoted in Fear deny saying the things attributed to them, Colbert told Woodward, mentioning Defense Secretary James Mattis, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and former Trump lawyer John Dowd.

In one anecdote, Trump is venting about the then-new special counsel investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and whether Trump's team played any part in it. "This means that all the information could be used but I would not say who provided it".

Well, Porter said, they're virtually unlimited.
