Bob Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes untrue

Bob Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes untrue

Who knows what impact the book will have in the long run, but it seems to confirm the allegations made by an anonymous Trump official in The New York Times and other negative depictions that belie Trump's claims that his White House runs like a "well-oiled machine". White House press secretary Sarah Sanders assured reporters Monday that the president is not now considering using lie detectors to figure out which senior administrative official wrote the anonymous op-ed, The Washington Examiner reported.

"Let me drill down, because there's a couple things that, I mean - they leap off the page", Guthrie pressed further, pointing to statements attributed to White House chief of staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis. He said "these are political statements to protect their jobs".

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".

Among other things Colbert and Woodward discussed was if the author ever thinks about the motives of his sources.

When Bob Woodward says that we are not taking seriously the threat posed by a President "so detached from the reality of what's going on", we should all take note.

"And then this person has said some public things that contradict that". "Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction". The Trump White House has shocked him more than any of the eight others he's covered, he added, because Trump fundamentally doesn't understand that national security is more than just the US military.

Djokovic wins third US Open, equals Sampras on 14 Grand Slams
Never was that more apparent than the game that stood out on this evening: with Djokovic serving while down 4-3 in the second set. The eighth game was an epic, lasting over 20 minutes and featuring eight deuces before Djokovic withstood the pressure to hold.

Cohn, who was the head of the National Economic Council, told the president that he could not raise the top rate as part of his tax reform package, Woodward reports. If I did I would not have been elected President. "I just want to find out what happened", he said. Democrats can't stand losing.

The book has already risen to No. 1 on Amazon's best-seller list, but Trump said Woodward used "now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources. I'll write the real book!" he added.

Woodward wrote that Cohn then went on to explain how printing more money is thought to lead to inflation and could be catastrophic for the fiscal health of the U.S.

After seeing Trump's reaction to the questioning, Dowd immediately tells the president that he can't testify to Mueller because he is "disabled". "But in the end, President Trump is the one who decides, and he has shown himself more than capable of doing so".

In early 2018, Trump sent several belligerent tweets that seemed created to taunt North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"I'm not, because I know what I did, and I'm not anxious about it", Trump Jr. said.
