Woodward's 'Fear' Posts Strong Sales as Interest in Trump Books Continues

"Just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources".

Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and T.V. "hits" like no other pol has had to endure".

Woodward - who won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the Watergate scandal - reports the events in his new book Fear: Trump in the White House.

The author writes that Porter and White House economic adviser Gary Cohn helped stave off some of Trump's attempts to end free-trade agreements, even to the point of stealing paper off the Resolute Desk so the president didn't see them. However, some consider him a risky choice because he earned those credentials by defending President Bill Clinton during impeachment proceedings, as well as President George W. Bush during the US attorney firings. "It's 1,000 percent correct, '" said Woodward.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. And about the third visit, they say, 'Oh yeah, maybe I have something upstairs, ' and then they come downstairs with three boxes of documents. Woodward, an associate editor of the Washington Post called the anonymous op-ed sub-standard and undeserving of publication. He's gone off the rails. He told me the U.S. has gotten nothing out of Afghanistan.

Christie has rebutted Woodward's claims.

But according to Woodward, Cohn's message did not seem to connect. Reporters at the major national newspapers do great work, he said, but "they can't do the ninth interview with somebody before they publish".

The largest gold nugget was discovered 500 meters below the surface in an area just three meters wide and three meters high. Henry Dole , the miner credited with finding the gold, said "Never in my life have I seen anything like this".

"That's lying", Guthrie pointed out.

Asked if the Trump showed signs of mental defect, Woodward said "my job here is not to psychoanalyze, it's to describe what happened". What I want to focus on is - here's the problem.

Woodward said Kelly was similarly distraught when Trump drafted a tweet threatening to remove all US military personnel from South Korea.

Earlier, Trump said he would pen his own book with the real story of his accomplishments. Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book.

After some pushback, Guthrie admitted that "there is a lot in there that does ring true". Also criticizing the book Tuesday was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who said on Twitter that "a number of the statements attributed to me and from others to me in the Woodward book are incorrect". The possibility that some of these witnesses may have been less than candid in their recollection of events or may have bent the facts in order to shine in the book simply does not occur to the veteran investigative author. Dems can't stand losing.

"I can stop this", Cohn said to Porter, according to the book. Similarly, Woodward devotes considerable attention to the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, yet does so by and large through the prism of Trump's attorney, John Dowd, whose conclusions and interpretations Woodward often accepts at face value.

Controversy on his credibility is not a new issue for Woodward.
