This plays out in larger and more troubling ways as well, according to Woodward's book, and history may judge most of Trump's White House team and political party harshly for enabling the president's radical solipsism.

Woodward's book is the latest to throw the Trump administration into damage-control mode with explosive anecdotes and concerns about the commander in chief. "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public", Trumptweeted.

Trump said Wednesday that such a demand was "never discussed" and accused Woodward of writing false and "scandalous" things about other presidents, including George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Mattis issued a statement Tuesday calling the book "fiction".

"The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true", Kelly wrote, "in fact it's exactly the opposite".

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

In a statement to The Post, Woodward said, "I stand by my reporting".

Trump added: "He couldn't even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama".

She said people should take what is written in books about the president with "a grain of salt".

The book claims that after Syrian President Bashar al-Assad ordered chemical weapons to be used against civilians in April of past year, Trump called Mattis and said he wanted to assassinate Assad. On March 5, Dowd met with the special counsel and one of his deputies and explained why he was trying to keep Trump away from them.

"I'm not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot", he said.

"President Trump. or President Trump?"

"Trump needs somebody he respects and he respects General Keane", a senior GOP congressional aide told me.

"I don't want him looking like an idiot", Dowd said. John Kelly called the book "BS" and "another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump".

Cooper played audio of a phone call between Trump and Woodward last month in which the president regrets not being interviewed for the book.

Defense Secretary James Mattis describes Trump as having the understanding of "a fifth or sixth grader". "This is the worst job I've ever had".

Trump said that did not take place.

Trump's former lawyer John Dowd conducted a mock interview with Trump to convince him that he would commit perjury if he agreed to talk to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russian Federation investigation, the book says.

Woodward and Bernstein - or "Woodstein" - became the most heralded USA investigative journalists ever, and the Washington Post won the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service.

The book follows the January release of author Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury", which led to a rift between Trump and Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist.

The president continued to offer praise for Kavanaugh on Wednesday amid the nominee's second day of hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which have been often interrupted by protests from left-leaning activists.
