Bob Woodward: Trump Threat ‘Has Not Been Treated Seriously Enough’

Patty Aguilar | 11 September, 2018, 18:10

Donald Trump Jr. expressed concern Tuesday about the dwindling number of White House staffers loyal to his father, who has railed about an anonymous op-ed by a senior administration official who painted a grim picture of the president.

Woodward spoke to NBC's "Today" show Monday morning, a day before the release of "Fear", warning that Trump is "detached from the reality of what's going on" and arguing there could be national security consequences.

In a series of Tweets Monday, the president continued to lash out at Woodward personally and his book's portrayal of Trump as a foul-mouthed and bumbling egotist.

More recently, Trump has accused Woodward of fabricating quotes and questioned whether USA libel laws could be changed so that people who believe they have been wronged would be in a better position to seek "retribution".

"Imagine your lawyer telling you you are disabled and you can't testify because you can't tell the truth - you just make things up", Wooodward told Colbert.

When asked about Bob Woodward's controversial new book, Sanders accused him of failing to corroborate much of the allegations that were made.

But he said he has "no idea" which "senior administration official" wrote last week's anonymous New York Times op-ed stating that some within the White House are actively working to stop Trump from acting out on certain impulses.

"That that is actually being discussed is ridiculous and frankly insulting to the almost 62 million people that came out an overwhelming support this president, voted for him, supported his agenda and are watching and cheering on as we successfully implement that agenda every day", she said.

Mr Trump is quoted in "Fear" brutally insulting members of his own cabinet, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "mentally retarded" and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as a "little rat".

Woodward says: 'The first is not knowing. Even approaching the debt ceiling can be harmful to the stock market and U.S. economic growth.

"This is very low-level person who will throw their name on an op-ed, and basically subvert the vote of the American people who elected my father to do this job", he added. "General Mattis, General Kelly said it's not true".

Defence secretary Jim Mattis is quoted as saying the president has the mental capacity of a "fifth or sixth grader", while chief of staff John Kelly is said to have called Mr Trump "an idiot". "These quotes were made up".

A different journalist asked if the White House would give a list of everything in the book that they thought were inaccurate, to which Sanders replied, "I think that would be a complete and utter waste of our time, so no". "As you know from having read my book there are dates and times and participants - I wouldn't have used it".
