White House slams talk of 25th Amendment to remove President Trump

Woodward's latest work, Fear: Trump in the White House, paints a portrait of Trump as uninformed and mercurial.

The book is billed on Amazon as "the inside story on President Trump, as only Bob Woodward can tell it".

"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. I think we could be so rich if we weren't stupid.

"Listen, I think you're subverting the will of the people. To try to control the presidency, while not the president ... you have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this", he said.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Woodward staunchly defended the integrity of his reporting and said the book, which comes out this week, "is as carefully done as you can do an excavation of the reality of what goes on".

And then the bombshell New York Times anonymous an op-ed titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration" created a storm another the Trump administration. "These people, these are political statements to protect their jobs, totally understandable". But Trump's attacks may have backfired after the Woodward's publisher said Monday it had reprinted his book an astounding six times before it's even gone on sale to the public.

Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward said this morning that staffers are able to whisk papers off the president's desk - out of fear that some signed documents would create a national security crisis - because Donald Trump doesn't remember they were there in the first place.

Kelly last week also denied quotes attributed to him in the book in which he allegedly said that Trump was "unhinged" and "an idiot" whose administration had turned into "Crazytown".

What the New York Jets displayed on defense and special teams may have been even more encouraging for Darnold and his teammates. The Jets matched their road victory total from last season (with one) and set a franchise record for points in a road game.

Colbert also asked Woodward what he thought about Trump and some of his top officials - including James Mattis and John Kelly, who were quoted in the book - disparaging the new book.

The Op-Ed, which said that members of the administration were working to thwart some of the president's impulses, sparked a firestorm in Washington and beyond, with Trump even questioning in a tweet whether treason was committed.

"In the end, I know what I've done, and I'm not anxious about that at all, because I've done nothing that anyone else wouldn't do in that position, in my opinion", said Trump Jr.

"I think historically speaking, that would be what happens", Trump Jr. said.

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

"If that individual is in meetings where national security is being discussed or other important topics, and they are attempting to undermine the executive branch, that would certainly be problematic".

The reporter explains how Trump asked how much the defence system costs and baulks at the $1 billion price tag.

The book claims that Trump falsely suggested that McCain took an early-release from the PoW camp in Vietnam-something that Mattis quickly told the President wasn't true.
