Bob Woodward's Book Goes on Sale as Ex-Trump Aides Push Back

Donald Trump called the writer "gutless" and said the anonymous essay amounted to "treason".

"You can write a sensational nonsense book. These quotes were made up", Trump said last week, calling the book a "scam".

Woodward has consistently said he stands behind his reporting on Trump's actions.

When accused of sexual assault or other misdeeds by women, President Donald Trump says you've got to "deny, deny, deny", according to veteran journalist Bob Woodward's new book.

Gary Cohn and Rob Porter both issued statements taking some issue with Woodward's description of Trump's White House in "Fear", which was released Tuesday, as a "Crazytown" where aides plot to thwart Trump's orders and keep him contained.

"Fear: Trump in the White House" hits USA bookstores on Tuesday after a weeklong buildup, with published excerpts, leaks and interviews that portray Trump as dangerously erratic and uninformed.

Christie, who is a subject within the book, continued to unleash his wrath on Woodward and Bannon: "If Mr". So, I think Trump has got a real problem here.

Mr Cruz said BA had "hundreds" of people communicating with customers "making sure that we can help to protect that data".

Nothing of significance has emerged from the efforts to exploit Afghanistan's minerals, but Trump's Afghanistan-centric South Asia strategy, unveiled in August 2017, said the U.S. would stay with additional troops. Trump asked, according to Woodward.

Moreover, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Chief of Staff John Kelly, Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and other top officials have all slammed Woodward for his allegedly untrue claims.

But Woodward says in his book there was an even more risky tweet that wasn't sent, declaring that Trump was withdrawing the family members of US troops from South Korea.

The daily, which rarely publishes anonymous articles, said it did not disclose the name of the senior official in the Trump administration on the request of the author, whose "identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardised by its disclosure".

"She's obsessed with Barron", one person told Woodward.

Cohn, the former White House chief economic advisor, and ex-staff secretary Porter are portrayed as having worked together to prevent a poorly informed Trump from making unsound and potentially disastrous decisions involving national security and the economy. In an interview with the Independent, Hall said he sees the same thing happening in the White House now. "People closest to him do not trust him", he added, "And the impulse-driven presidency is something that the more people know, the more they realize we're at risk".
