President Trump in Woodward book: 'You've got to deny' accusations by women

President Trump in Woodward book: 'You've got to deny' accusations by women

Trump is quoted in the book brutally insulting members of his own Cabinet, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "mentally retarded" and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as "a little rat".

Trump told journalists he "really" appreciated the pair's statements, which helped show that "the book is just a piece of fiction". Trump's predictable attempts to do so last week, calling Woodward an idiot and a democratic operative and calling the book a fake book with fraudulent quotes in series of tweets and on-camera responses, rang more hollow than usual.

But neither Cohn nor Porter said specifically what was inaccurate, and neither denied speaking to Woodward.

While neither former staffer directly denied details in the book, Porter said in a statement that the book offers a "selective and often misleading portrait".

"The White House is a 'smooth running machine.' We are making some of the biggest and most important deals in our country's history - with many more to come!" That allowed him to use the material, but not attribute it to the sources. "But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.

Legendary journalist says a presidency is measured by what actually is done on the issues that affect people.

Withdrawing from that trade agreement, known as KORUS, could jeopardize a top-secret intelligence operation that enables the U.S.to quickly detect any intercontinental ballistic missiles launched from North Korea, according to Woodward.

Amid the drama, former staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman sought to seize some of the spotlight by releasing a recording she said was of Trump talking to junior aides during a communications meeting. Woodward writes that Modi wanted to go to Camp David, the presidential retreat located a short distance from DC, "have dinner, bond with Trump".

"We're doing this in order to prevent World War III", Mattis told the president, according to Woodward's reporting. "Never has a country given so much away for so little in return" as the United States had in Afghanistan, Modi had said to Trump, according to The Washington Post. He added, "He and I both know this story is total BS".

"People better wake up to what's going on", Woodward said of the White House during an interview about his new book on CBS News' "Sunday Morning".

Trump has already tweeted his low opinion of the book.
