White House Responds to Woodward Book

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Sanders said the book did not accurately depict the administration, adding that it had been "pretty widely pushed back on".

Trump tweeted the denial statements Tuesday evening (Wednesday NZ time) and then, without providing evidence, suggested the book's release was timed to affect the midterm elections in November.

Woodward says he has "gained a lot of insight and documentation" and that his book will be a "tough look at the world and your administration and you".

"I can stop this. I can only take it so far".

Underscoring the aggressive response, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted Wednesday that Woodward "got played", adding that "most of these stories are made up from low confidence under performing people that have fallen flat on their faces because they didn't have the talent or intelligence to be successful".

This amounts to an "administrative coup d'état", Woodward says.

Particularly incendiary are the book's claims about the rocky relationship between Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions regarding what the president views as his lack of action on the Russian Federation probe. Not only that but it seems like they are so frustrated with him that they're calling Trump names!

Mr Trump is quoted as saying: "Let's f***ing kill him!"

"Let's [expletive] kill him!"

Ms Conway is one of the aides with direct access to the president.

A new tell-all book authored by famed Watergate journalist Bob Woodward, reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, shows President Donald Trump viciously attacking the top officials in his own administration. Trump said. "Let's go in". Trump even complained about the military spending involved in joint exercises and other activities aimed at maintaining a strong presence on the Korean Peninsula. "How many more lost limbs?" But according to Woodward, he quietly saved the South Korea-US trade agreement, known as Korus, when in 2017 he removed a "letter off Trump's desk" that the president planned to sign that would have ordered a US withdrawal. We're in Crazytown. I don't even know why any of us are here.

"It's really too bad, because nobody told me about it", said the president.

Reuters said the book paints "a picture of a White House gripped by fear, loathing and chaos". Trump responded, according to Woodward, "Oh, okay".

When they repeatedly catch Trump with stumbles, contradictions, and lies, the President flies into a 30-minute rage, calls the probe a hoax, and refuses to testify. "You're past your prime".

The other anecdote is Trump's comments about Senator John McCain, R, who died two weeks ago. "He just scurries around".

Supposedly, Trump also called Sessions "mentally retarded".

"This guy is mentally retarded. Not all Southerners are dumb", he said. Among the most damaging extracts is one that describes Trump's lawyers John Dowd and Jay Seculow conducting mock interviews with Trump to coach him for appearance before Special Counsel Robert Muller.

"This was no longer a presidency". After Trump left the room, Woodward wrote, Mattis told people that Trump understood the topic like a "fifth or sixth-grader".

Mr Kelly's predecessor, Reince Priebus, describes the presidential bedroom suite as "the devil's workshop", where Mr Trump fires off intemperate tweets early in the morning and on weekends. It also says he called Trump an "idiot", an account Kelly denied Tuesday.

"Fear: Trump in the White House", by Bob Woodward, will be available September 11. And I'll tell you this, if anybody knows me. "So I have another bad book coming out".

Trump claimed he "never used those terms on anyone", but audio recordings from previous interviews prove otherwise. I told you he was a goddamn dumbbell. The president and staff including Kelly, have denied Woodward's account.
