'Fear': Woodward's book on Trump grabs record sales

President Trump has been on a heated war path about Woodward's book President Trump has been on a heated war path about Woodward's book

Several people in Trump's orbit have called the book's accuracy into question, while Woodward has maintained several times that he stands by his reporting. Woodward is an American from IL who is best known for helping to uncover the Watergate scandal that ended Richard Nixon's presidency.

"I think in our business, at times, we are cheating the public. You want to listen to everyone, you want to be patient, and then you want to go back, and then you want to get into their home", Woodward said, as the audience laughed.

Earlier, Trump said he would pen his own book with the real story of his accomplishments.

Woodward's account of a dysfunctional Trump White House has already sold more than 750,000 copies, Simon & Schuster announced Wednesday, the day after the book arrived in stores.

Woodward's book contains scenes of cabinet members and advisers actively blocking Trump's policy priorities, including trade and the alliance with South Korea and a proposed assassination of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

Donald Trump has been further quoted in the book that PM Modi told him that United States should at least get something from Afghanistan in return.

Kelly is quoted calling Trump "an idiot", and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader".

"Just run the presses-print money", Trump said, according to Woodward.

In a statement last week, Mattis called the book "fiction" and said that "the contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

"Trump pivoted", Woodward writes.

But Woodward said he did know, with certainty, that Kelly was trying to gain control of the White House - but is having a hard time doing so. The objective of the meeting was for Goldman Sachs' then-president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn to brief president-elect Trump on the economy.

The White House and some officials named in the book have attacked Woodward, taking aim at his credibility.

Porter, it should be noted, was forced to leave the White House as Trump's staff secretary, after credible allegations emerged that he had abused his ex-wives.

"And that's how you end the book", Colbert said.

But can he say whether his current work will play a similar role in Trump's political future? This development alone should have prompted Woodward to rethink his assessment of Trump's flexibility, pragmatism, and willingness to change his positions. The book will be released on Tuesday.
