Trump rips Woodward, says book about White House is full of lies

WOODWARD: Well, if that person had come to me while I was working on this book or if it was somebody I interviewed, I would say, I need specifics.

You let people talk on the record, and you get things that are not true.

One telltale sign of the book's soon-to-be success is its author's reputation.

Donald Trump refused to send any additional aid.

In "Fear", Woodward claims Trump accused Christie of "stealing" from him while he was assisting on the presidential campaign trail, notes The Hill.

"It's frankly, I think, sad and pathetic that a gutless anonymous source could receive so much attention from the media", Sanders said of the New York Times piece. "Fulfilling this responsibility does not make someone part of a "resistance" or mean they are seeking to "thwart" the president's agenda". The magazine goes on to say that Cohn was "astounded" by "the depths of the president's stupidity".

More recently, Trump has accused Woodward of fabricating quotes and questioned whether USA libel laws could be changed so that people who believe they have been wronged would be in a better position to seek "retribution".

Mattis, and multiple other administration officials, have denied the comments attributed to them in "Fear".

President-elect Donald Trump stands with, left to right, Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Donald Trump Jr. before he speaks at a press conference at Trump Tower in New York City, Jan. 11, 2017.

During the interview, Trump Jr. also said he is not anxious about legal exposure resulting from the special counsel's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. He said his book "is as carefully done as you can do an excavation of the reality of what goes on".

The latest track for Florence still shows it making landfall sometime Thursday afternoon along the Carolina coast as a category 4. Governor Ralph Northam declared a state of emergency today in anticipation of the potential impact from Tropical Storm Florence .

During the meeting at Trump Tower in November 2016, Cohn touched on a series of economic issues, including the Federal Reserve.

The Justice Department said it does not deny or confirm ongoing investigations.

The book also quotes White House Chief of Staff John Kelly as telling colleagues that the president was "unhinged" and "an idiot" who had "gone off the rails".

The almost unprecedented attack on the President drew a sharp reaction from Trump who termed the op-ed as "treason" and "gutless".

WOODWARD:.For a very long time.

"At the same time, I think I'm able to compartmentalize it", he added.

'And in the end I know what I've done, and I'm not anxious about that at all, because you know, I've done nothing that anyone else wouldn't do in that position, in my opinion'.

Porter also took on a key goal of the White House on trade policy as senior advisers took divergent positions.

Donald Trump, Jr. appears in Civil Supreme Court, July 26, 2018, in NY.

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. "His message was always "Suck it up" and 'What have you got for me tomorrow?" This is not a guy who makes big boasts and then fails to deliver on them. But that's what they've said, and that's what's historical. People are kidding themselves if they think it hasn't taken a dramatic emotional toll on the president. The likelihood of being sued increased as they got to number four, Priebus explained. "As you know and are living, we are at a pivot point in history", he said.
