Trump insults Woodward book again and says he'll write "the real book!"

Trump insults Woodward book again and says he'll write

Woodward's said he won't name the official but was happy with his public statement.

"I think this book shows in meticulous detail what happens at specific meetings, where the issues are addressed by President Trump and his staff, foreign affairs, North Korea, Afghanistan, the Middle East, all of the immigration, trade issues", he said.

Bob Woodward's book Fear: Trump in the White House may not be in bookshops just yet, but with the book in high demand one million copies have been printed in advance.

It appeared to be another instance of the president versus the administration, as Trump proceeded on one track while the agencies largely moved on another.

The book says that Reince Priebus, Trump's then-chief of staff, told HH McMaster, then the National Security Advisor, that the trip wasn't "on the cards".

Some figures who are quoted in the book, like chief of staff John Kelly and defense secretary James Mattis, have denied making derogatory remarks about Trump.

The White House has said that it was not considering lie detector tests to identify the senior official who wrote an anonymous New York Times op-ed depicting a "resistance" inside President Donald Trump's administration.

In his first of a series of tweets, Mr. Trump called Woodward's book, which publishes Tuesday, "a joke" and said that he would write his own White House account.

The port in Charleston, South Carolina, though, was suspending operations from Thursday through Saturday and possibly on Sunday. The area is under tropical storm and flash flood watches into the weekend. "You have a double whammy in the flooding", he said.

The White House has spent more than a week battling the allegations in Mr.

During his business career, Trump wrote almost 20 books, including "The Art of the Deal".

That claim aside, people inside the West Wing say the identity of the writer remains a topic of heated discussion as reports emerged that a list of possible authors had been drawn up.

Trump also derided his predecessor's return to politics. During the 2016 Republican primaries, Trump also released a book titled, "Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again". On Monday, it was ranked as the top-selling book on Amazon. Woodward writes that Modi wanted to go to Camp David, the presidential retreat located a short distance from DC, "have dinner, bond with Trump".

"Dems can't stand losing".

"You can write a sensational nonsense book".

Trump had some unusual idea about the national debt: Another anecdote involving Cohn, the former director of the National Economic Council, claims that Trump suggested printing money to pay off the national debt: "Just run the presses - print money", the Woodward book quotes Trump as saying. Both deny the statements.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Woodward said that "frequently" a source says something to him and then publicly denies it after publication.
