Trump Assails Highly Critical New Book

Trump said the book, written by US veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward, "means nothing" and called it "a work of fiction" during a photo op with visiting Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah at the White House.

Bob Woodward's new book - "Fear: Trump in the White House" - the latest in a series by Woodward dealing with U.S. presidencies, comes out on September 11, 2018.

"This has not been treated seriously enough", Woodward said.

In Fear, Woodward's 19th book, Kelly and Mattis are named as two of several senior current and former Trump administration officials who mock the president's mental capacity and express concerns about his ability to lead. Whatever the flaws of Mr Trump's predecessors, they all tried to the best of their ability to do what they believed were good things for their country.

When asked about their denials, Woodward said: "They are not telling the truth".

"Mattis says to him, 'We're doing this to prevent World War III, '" Woodward said. "I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations", reads the subhead of the piece, which ostensibly sought to reassure the public that well-intentioned people such as the author had the public's back.

"A number of people have come out and said Woodward never even reached out to corroborate, which seems incredibly reckless for a book to make such outrageous claims, to not even get a $10 fact checker", Sanders said.

The decision not to include the weapons in the parade is seen as a move to placate Donald Trump and continue decreasing the tension between the nations that had existed before, an analyst told the New York Times.

Scores of senior figures within the Trump administration, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defence Secretary James Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel have all come forward to deny they wrote the editorial.

Michelle Obama's book, " Becoming ", goes on sale November 13 - exactly a week after election day. Obama, in making his first political speech with the midterms in mind, implored people to vote.

"He says these are all unnamed sources, but these are not unnamed instances", Woodward said on NBC.

Woodward made the comments to CBS News on Sunday, while promoting his book Fear: Trump in the White House.

The tweet never was sent because of a back-channel message from the North Koreans that they would view it as a sign the United States was preparing to attack, according to CBS.

The book - "Fear: Trump in the White House" - officially hits the shelves on Tuesday.

President Donald Trump teased that he might write a book of his own about his presidency.

Trump has been bashing the book since excerpts began appearing last week, going so far as to call Woodward an "idiot".

Woodward replied that these "political statements", denying the quotes in the book, were designed "to protect their jobs".

Later on during the interview, Woodward put Guthrie on the spot, when she questioned him about specific portions of his book. Dems can't stand losing. It's very important whether this is somebody who witnessed and participated.

The President also lashed out on Wednesday and dismissed the op-ed as "really a disgrace" and "gutless" and assailed the author and the Times for publishing the anonymous opinion piece.
