Trump Never Called for Syrian President's Assassination, Pentagon Says

Bob Woodward and Donald Trump

Woodward in his book "Fear: Trump in the White House" that hit the stores on Tuesday, has portrayed a dysfunctional Trump administration.

When faced with such advice, Woodward said, "President Trump will say, 'Well, I've had those ideas for 30 years, and if you disagree with me, you're wrong'".

"Fear: Trump In The White House" by Bob Woodward, a respected American journalist (see below), describes how Modi wanted to "bond with Trump" at Camp David.

US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, in turn, is quoted as saying the president has the mental capacity of a "fifth or sixth grader", while Chief of Staff John Kelly is quoted as calling Mr Trump "an idiot". The meeting was held a couple of weeks after PM Modi had met Donald Trump after he became US President.

Book critics have quipped that Trump is an effective book salesman, because his angry tweets and denunciations have fueled interest in "Fire and Fury", "Fear" and several other titles this year.

On the eve of its release, the president took to Twitter with a preemptive round of attacks, denouncing as fiction Woodward's reconstruction of scenes in which frustrated aides scramble to contain the mercurial president's reckless impulses. Mattis then allegedly turned to an aide and said he would ignore Trump's demand. Woodward attributed to him were "incorrect" and that he hadn't been called by Mr.

We do not want to go back to that place and time, where zealous politicians could enlist the use of government agents for their own political aims.




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. "I think it's a composite series of opinions from a bunch of people New York Times have on staff or talk to", the radio host said.

It was also at this National Security Council meeting that Trump suggested cutting off all security-related aid for Pakistan - almost six months before he actually suspended funding on January 1 - saying Islamabad wasn't helping Washington in the Afghan war.

'Imagine a lawyer, your lawyer, telling you you're disabled and you can't testify because you can't tell the truth.

Since his reporting for the Washington Post with Carl Bernstein led former President Richard Nixon to resign in the mid-1970's rather than face impeachment, Woodward has won two Pulitzer Prizes and authored 18 best-selling books.

The reporter explains how Trump asked how much the defence system costs and baulks at the $1 billion price tag. He's gone off the rails.

In January, Trump raged about Pakistan's "lies and deceit" and the administration announced the suspension of almost $2 billion in security-related aid. "It's the worst job in America". "And I think we can break history", he added.

But then comes the very end of the book, which Colbert told Woodward he would read for the audience, "because I don't have the credibility you do". A Quinnipiac poll measured Trump's approval at 38%, down from 41% a month prior.
