‘Fiction!’ Trump says he’ll write ‘real book’ in response to Woodward’s publication

President Donald Trump, an opponent of the involvement of U.S. troops in Afghanistan, was apparently influenced by a remark from Prime Minister Narendra Modi while aides debated the administration's policy for the war-ravaged country in the summer of 2017. "We have a sitting president who will undoubtedly be impeached".

"People better wake up to what's going on", Woodward said of the White House during an interview about his new book on CBS News' "Sunday Morning".

In the piece, an unnamed senior administration official says people within the White House are actively "thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses".

Woodward says his sources' denials are driven by "political necessity", and are a product of the way Washington generally runs.

NY was holding primaries for governor and attorney general on Thursday, with polls set to close at 9:00 p.m. She could have brought up his failure to address gerrymandering, an issue that Cuomo ran on in 2010.

The White House says Camp David, the United States president's country retreat, offers the commander-in-chief "solitude, tranquility, and a place to host foreign leaders". It was the first White House briefing since the New York Times essay became public last week. But it would set off alarm bells throughout Washington if the president were to mobilize the Justice Department to investigate a matter in which no crime was committed or classified information disclosed. The magazine goes on to say that Cohn was "astounded" by "the depths of the president's stupidity".

"And, that's how you end the book".

Trump also derided his predecessor's return to politics.

The White House on Monday sought to project an image of productive forward momentum, even as President Donald Trump and many of his aides remain sidetracked and preoccupied by dual accounts of a warring and mutinous West Wing. On Monday, it was ranked as the top-selling book on Amazon.

Also criticizing the book Tuesday was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who said on Twitter that "a number of the statements attributed to me and from others to me in the Woodward book are incorrect".

Trump and several members of his administration were quoted have called the book "fiction and fabrication". Dems can't stand losing. Trump has personally taken offense to the book's contents, which he described as "another assault against me".

Defence secretary Jim Mattis is quoted as saying the president has the mental capacity of a "fifth or sixth grader", while chief of staff John Kelly is said to have called Mr Trump "an idiot".

Both have released statements denying the comments. "The narrative that I've picked up, in not only this book but the opinion editorials, suggests that things are happening in spite of the president's leadership, and nothing could be further from the truth".
