NYT columnist: Woodward's book will have a 'decisive effect' on midterms

US President Donald Trump almost provoked North Korea into war with a single tweet, renowned journalist Bob Woodward said in an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning" that aired Sunday. "The incidents are not anonymous, it gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often the president himself and what he says". He is certainly the best known and, since his role in the expose of Richard Nixon and the Watergate cover-up in the early 1970s, in Washington he is also one of the most feared.
Woodward said of the president, "There's a war on truth by him".
"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote on his Twitter account.
"To the President's point, there could be a national security risk at hand; he doesn't want this person in a meeting where he's discussing China, Russia, North Korea", Conway told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to the accomplishments of the current Congress when asked about the op-ed during an interview on Fox News. He accused the media of trying to undermine the Trump administration and said he found that "incredibly disturbing".
"It's an absolutely outrageous statement, you're serving your country", he said, arguing that the anonymous official should resign rather than taking the "cowardly" action of writing the op-ed.
That's a big deal - especially because it confirms much of the daily reporting that has come out of this White House since Trump became President 19 months ago.
In a statement, Kelly flatly disputed maligning the president like that: "The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true, in fact it's exactly the opposite".
The essay said members of the administration were running a "two-track presidency", achieving Republican policy aims while sidelining the "amoral ... impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" Trump until he was out of office.
They think it is absolutely disgusting that they would do such a thing because unless you know who it is, it is a one way street. Trump attacked the book as a "scam", and suggested hardening the country's "pathetic" libel legislation.
