Trump's Attacks Backfire As Bob Woodward's 'Fear' Gets 1 Million Copy Run

  • Donald Trump is come under increasing fire from journalists politicians and even his own staff

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

"It doesn't seem to be anybody very high up because everybody very high up has already said, 'It wasn't me, '" Trump said.

Now the investigative journalist stopped by Stephen Colbert's Late Show to discuss the book.

Honestly, Colbert's first question, about how on Earth people still think it's a good idea to talk to Woodward, is probably one that a lot of people have.

"Everybody's trying to get me", the president told Porter, the book says.

Asked later whether the White House would list all the things in Woodward's book that are wrong, Sanders said such an exercise "would be a complete and utter waste of our time, so no". "They're not really a friend", despite the Dollars 1.3 billion a year in aid the United States gave them, Trump said. Indeed, she or he complains that the "bright spots" of Trump's rule - "effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more" - have been spoiled by the president's behaviour. "And you can't testify because you can't tell the truth, you just make things up". Trump cited "national security" as the reason U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions should investigate.

After learning of the news regarding Mueller and Deutsche Bank, a primary lender to the president, Woodward wrote that a furious Trump phoned Dowd at 7 a.m.

Cohn reportedly tried to explain that economics does not work as Trump suggested.

"Sir, you can't take the top rate up", Cohn said, according to Woodward. Put it in Portland'.

As a candidate, Donald Trump pledged to balance the federal budget and lower the national debt, promises that are proving hard to keep.

Then, an anonymous op-ed writer in The New York Times, who claimed to be a senior White House official and "part of the resistance inside the Trump administration", added fuel to Woodward's fire.

Other details concern Trump's "lack of curiosity and knowledge" about global affairs.

"If Gen. [James] Mattis had an issue with my father he would say it to his face", he said of the defense secretary, who, according to the expose, compared the president to a "fifth- or sixth-grader".

Woodward depicts widespread White House dysfunction in "Fear", raising explosive allegations of a paranoid president whose own staff believes is unhinged and erratic. He's gone off the rails. "I know what I borrowed, when I borrowed, when I paid it back". "It's the worst job in America". Mattis called the book "the product of someone's rich imagination".

Trump called the author "GUTLESS" on Twitter. "These quotes were made up". Likewise other stories and quotes.
