Trump wants to change libel laws in response to Bob Woodward's book

  • Trump said his former chief of staff Reince Priebus scurries around'like a rat

Kimmel, meanwhile, simply repeated excerpts from the book and laughed, before saying, "It's a good thing Donald Trump doesn't read books, because I think this one would make him very upset". Bob Corker of Tennessee, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tweeted that "The White House has become an adult day care center".

Subjects and critics of Woodward's books over the years have complained about his zealous approach to narrative reconstructions and some of the details in his reporting, while largely failing to undermine the broader thrusts of a body of work built upon heaps of in-depth, recorded interviews and ample documentation. "I don't want you doing any more negotiations", the president reportedly said. Woodward is a Dem operative?

At a January meeting of the National Security Council, Trump asked why the United States was spending so much on the Korean Peninsula.

Mattis is quoted explaining to Trump why the US maintains troops on the Korean Peninsula to monitor North Korea's missile activities.

Mattis had to explain that the expenses in the region are meant to "avoid a Third World War" but it's implied Trump still didn't get it.

The statement from Mr Mattis describes the book as "a product of someone's rich imagination" and adds: "The contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

Trump did not speak to Woodward until after the book's manuscript was completed.

The book includes some damning quotes from those closest to the president, including Chief of Staff John Kelly. Kelly added that he and the President "have an incredibly candid and strong relationship" and that "he and I both know this story is total BS".

She claimed in a statement: "While it is not always pretty, and rare that the press actually covers it, president Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people".

Dowd, who resigned soon after that conversation with Mueller this March, is absolutely right.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, Mr Dowd said: "There was no so-called "practice session" or "re-enactment" of a mock interview at the Special Counsel's office.

This is the worst job I've ever had", Woodward reports insiders saying of Kelly's remarks. "Let's fucking kill him!" The national security team then set about developing options for a conventional air strike.

"They don't tell me", Trump replied.

"Well, about six people", Woodward said.

The Washington Post released an audio recording and transcript of a call the president made to Woodward in early August.

Mr Cohn, who tried to rein in Mr Trump's protectionist impulses, also planned to remove a similar memo that would have withdrawn the USA from the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada, Woodward wrote. "And I'm not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot. Maybe I wasn't given messages that he called".

THE BOOK: Trump has made no secret of his fury with Attorney General Jeff Sessions over Session's recusal from the investigation into Russian election meddling.

It's also true, however, that the reporter has unrivalled access to the corridors of power, and the general Washington consensus is it's better to talk to him than not, since your colleagues - and enemies - are certainly giving him their side of the story.

According to the Post, it portrays a Trump White House that's filled with second-guessing by members of Trump's staff, who repeatedly bad-mouth him behind closed doors.

Mr Wolff's book attracted attention with its vivid anecdotes but suffered from numerous factual inaccuracies.

A central theme of the book is the stealthy machinations used by those in Trump's inner sanctum to try to control his impulses and prevent disasters, both for the president personally and for the nation he was elected to lead.
