Bob Woodward's book Fear: Trump in the White House released on Kindle

Bob Woodward's book Fear: Trump in the White House released on Kindle”

I like him very much", Trump is quoted as saying in Woodward's book "Fear: "Trump in the White House" The book has stirred a fresh row over its description of Trump as chaotic, mercurial and uninformed.

Woodward has defended his portrayal of Donald Trump as an unfit president whose aides intervened to prevent catastrophic decisions, as he kicked off appearances to promote his bombshell new book. And that's what we got to do. The defence secretary also faced down an order from Trump to assassinate Bashar al-Assad after the United States president learned that Assad had used chemical weapons in Syria's civil war.

"Sir, you can't take the top rate up", Cohn said, according to Woodward. Mattis called the book "the product of someone's rich imagination".

Woodward wrote that Kelly called Trump "an idiot".

"I know my relationships with Deutsche Bank", Trump told Dowd, with Woodward writing that the president said the bank loved him and was always paid for its loans. The goal of the meeting was for Goldman Sachs' then-president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn to brief president-elect Trump on the economy.

Mr. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One last week that if Mr. Cohn stole papers from his desk, he would "never speak to him again". He also said he was exploring bringing legal action against the newspaper.

As a candidate, Donald Trump pledged to balance the federal budget and lower the national debt, promises that are proving hard to keep.

"Fear: Trump in the White House" caused an uproar last week after Woodward released excerpts from the book, depicting the president as angry, frustrated and paranoid about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. If I did I would not have been elected President. Hardly anyone stopped to reflect on the truth or the seriousness or consequences of a White House and USA government in turmoil - or indeed the constitutionality of unelected officials trying to thwart America's supreme elected official. "These quotes were made up". "The soldiers had told him that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation staff were totally dysfunctional", the book says.

The publisher of Bob Woodward's book Fear is expecting one of the biggest publishing success stories of the year, printing one million copies to keep up with reader demand. But I really appreciate their statement.

The book also quotes Mattis, after a contentious National Security Council meeting on January 19, as saying Trump acted like and had the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader".

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