Bob Woodward: Trump Threat ‘Has Not Been Treated Seriously Enough’

Bob Woodward: Trump Threat ‘Has Not Been Treated Seriously Enough’”

You have lots of time, you need to be patient. Like him or loathe him, Reagan had a few big conservative ideas - free markets, low taxes, strong defence - and he employed around him a brilliant team of people who implemented those ideas.

"We have reprinted six times for a total of seven to meet extraordinary demand - that will put one million books in print before we've even gone on sale", a Simon & Schuster spokesperson told CNN.

"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".

I am convinced that people need to wake up and not kind of pretend this is just politics or this is partisan.

I knew that people in office in these sensitive positions were not going to talk on the record. And I think it illuminates what's going on, and not in some kind of abstract way.

The headline stories of Donald Trump's lack of attention, inability to focus, temper tantrums and his own personal fear of the Mueller investigation into his Russian links offer a stunningly detailed confirmation of what anyone paying attention to American politics over the past two years already knows.

"It was clear that Trump did not understand the way the USA government debt cycle balance sheet worked", Woodward wrote.

"You say, I've got all this information, and I want to get your perspective on it".

Then-economic adviser Gary Cohn reportedly told Trump that he couldn't raise the top tax rate for the simple reason that he was Republican and would "get absolutely destroyed" if he did so. But they were willing to help me in this process.

The source, while citing demeaning views of Trump from other unnamed senior officials, declined to say how many officials had actually taken this vow of resistance, or when and how they had taken this vow. "Documents and notes make it authentic".

Woodward claimed that "the incidents are not anonymous" even if the sources were because he provided dates, times and "who participates - most often the president himself, and what he says". And so they steal papers off his desk.

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".

"These are people who are trying to survive and keep their job".

"If that individual is in meetings where national security is being discussed or other important topics, and they are attempting to undermine the executive branch, that would certainly be problematic".

The author of the op-ed described him- or herself as one of several high-level government officials who "are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of [Trump's] agenda and his worst inclinations"-combating the president's "amorality" and "erratic behavior" in order to promote a conservative agenda like the one many in Trump's cabinet have spent their careers working to advance". "I think you buried the lead".
