As Donald Trump seethes, Mike Pence and others deny writing crit

  • Trump fires back at Bob Woodward book with statements from James Mattis and John Kelly

"Nothing in this town stays secret forever, and so ultimately I do think we will find out who is the author", he said.

Stephen Colbert has some advice for President Donald Trump. But some also expressed a desire to pull together and counter those who want to exacerbate the sense of mistrust. But lawmakers on Capitol Hill weren't the only ones alarmed by Trump's erratic behaviour, his troubling tweets or his temper.

Moving to squelch internet speculation, Pence's spokesman said the vice president did not write the article.

"Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader". Trump has demanded that aides identify the leaker, according to two people familiar with the matter, though it was not yet clear how they might go about doing so. "Our office is above such amateur acts". Meanwhile, the White House was still reeling from the guilty plea of Michael Cohen, the president's former lawyer, and the conviction of Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, on August 21.

The Woodward book, Fear: Trump in the White House, reported that senior aides lifted documents from the Oval Office desk to keep the president from acting on his impulses, reinforcing the assertions in the Times op-ed piece.

On Twitter, Trump charged "The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going insane - & they don't know what to do".

McMahon isn't the only one to deny that she wrote the article either. It reinforces the notion this place is a cesspool and if you try to change the place, the swamp creatures come and get you.

Trump tweeted. "If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!"

Other Republicans cast the author of the op-ed as a renegade whose anonymous status undercut any credibility.

Zarif also emphasized that the two neighboring countries of Iran and Pakistan should boost cooperation to counter any plot aimed at spreading Islamophobia.

President Donald Trump fired back at Bob Woodward and his anti-Trump book Tuesday by posting several statements from members of his cabinet denying events portrayed by the iconic journalist.

Trump and others blasted The New York Times after the newspaper ran what it said was a column written by someone within the president's administration who called into question his judgment and vowed to block some of his wishes. The author said Trump was reluctant to take the action, but "his national security team knew better".

On its podcast "The Daily", Dao said he was approached by someone he trusted about publishing the article.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told reporters she was not the author.

An unnamed senior Trump official has said members of the administration are working to frustrate parts of the president's agenda to protect the country from his "worst inclinations".

A "good number" of White House officials privately admitted to Axios that they view Trump as unstable - "and at times dangerously slow".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said "the coward" who wrote the piece should step forward and resign, saying "he is not putting country first, but putting himself and his ego ahead of the will of the American people".

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. "Today, we temporarily blocked accounts that shared this information until they deleted the Tweet that violated our rules", a Twitter spokesperson said at the time.
