Gary Cohn Waffles on Bob Woodward Book

Gary Cohn Waffles on Bob Woodward Book

Woodward writes in his book, "It was clear that Trump did not understand the way the USA government debt cycle balance sheet worked".

Jonathan Karp, president and publisher of Simon & Schuster, said sales were "with the force of a cultural phenomenon", as Woodward continues a round of media appearances this week. Susan Glasser of The New Yorker, however, has aptly written, "It was as if one of Woodward's sources had chosen to publish a real-time epilogue in the pages of the Times".

In January, Trump raged about Pakistan's "lies and deceit" and the administration announced the suspension of almost $2 billion in security-related aid.

Earlier Monday morning, Guthrie confronted Woodward - one of the two metro desk reporters at The Washington Post who first exposed the Watergate burglary in 1972 - about sources used in his forthcoming book, "Fear: Trump in the White House". On Tuesday, former Trump aides Gary Cohn and Rob Porter strained to distance themselves from the book, while leaving its content utterly unmolested.

While the book's stats are impressive, they also speak to the "weird economy" of publishing, Charles said.

Trump reacted furiously, accusing the writer of treason and demanding a Department of Justice investigation, though most analysts said no crime had been committed.

"The Woodward book is a scam", Trump said.

Majority of American voters oppose impeaching Trump

"Are they lying?" Guthrie asked 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".

Bob Woodward, associate editor of the Washington Post, has recently published an explosive book on the current United States presidency.

Pressed on whether Trump can win a credibility battle with the Pulitzer victor who helped expose President Richard Nixon's Watergate-era transgressions, Sanders pointed to "actual, on record" accounts from White House staffers, again pointing to Mattis and Kelly, "not disgruntled former employees".

"(Defense Secretary) James Mattis says we're doing this to prevent World War III", Woodward added. Cohn and Porter reportedly worked "steal" a letter from Trump's desk that would have pulled the US out of its trade deal with South Korea and prevent further copies of the order from reaching him.

Moreover, the book can hardly be said to be strictly objective. And with the release of Fear today, the coming days will likely only see even more revelations coming to the surface.
