Woodward: Key Trump Official Said Book Is ‘1,000 Percent’ True

The New York Times building on Sept. 6 2018 Trump urges attorney general to investigate anonymous op-ed

There was fear among some Trump advisers that if the president felt that his staff or the Justice Department was not carrying out his order to find the leakers, then he could feel compelled to make changes.

"You can write a sensational nonsense book".

Priebus wouldn't have any of it and said there will be a dinner in the White House.

Trump had some unusual idea about the national debt: Another anecdote involving Cohn, the former director of the National Economic Council, claims that Trump suggested printing money to pay off the national debt: "Just run the presses - print money", the Woodward book quotes Trump as saying.

"That's fine", Cohn said, Woodward reports.

"Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction".

The White House under President Donald Trump is mired in a perpetual "nervous breakdown" with staff constantly seeking to control a leader whose anger and paranoia can paralyze operations for days, according to a new book by Bob Woodward.




But, the president is no stranger to women accusing him of misdeeds. At least 19 women have publicly accused Trump of kissing them, touching them inappropriately or having an affair with him while he was married. So, I think Trump has got a real problem here.

Since then, Trump has been fairly critical of that book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", and Woodward, its author. He also called Woodward a "liar" and a "Dem operative". "We are part of the gang", he said.

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.

"We're underestimating how serious all of this is", Woodward tells NPR. "Frankly, the White House and the staff here are focused on doing our jobs", she told CNN's Jeff Zeleny.

On September 7, Trump urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions to help find the author of the op-ed, which described chaos in the White House and a "resistance" by Cabinet secretaries and others to thwart some of the President's impulsive actions. "I don´t even know why any of us are here".

In his first of what promises to be an exhaustive round of media interviews, the noted journalist who, along with Carl Bernstein, won the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of Watergate, told David Martin of CBS News, "You look at the operation of this White House and you have to say, Let's hope to God we don't have a crisis".
