Trump book: Key sources turn heat on Bob Woodward

Trump book: Key sources turn heat on Bob Woodward

Since then, Trump has been fairly critical of that book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", and Woodward, its author. Zervos claims the president sexually assaulted her in 2007 and filed a lawsuit in NY after Trump said she was lying. The Justice Department said it will not confirm or deny investigations.

The White House has spent more than a week battling the allegations in Mr.

"You don't get to do it that way", Cohn said, according to Woodward.

Mr Trump said of the book on Twitter: "Isn't it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost". "'I'm not making a deal on anything until we get minerals.' And the USA 'must stop payments to Pakistan until they cooperate'".

It was a forceful return to the briefing room for Sanders, who went 19 days without an on-camera press conference. Trump denied those claims and insisted the women were lying.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz tweeted to the president on Thursday: "Shame on you", including a picture of his tweet. The president defended the federal government's " fantastic job " in Puerto Rico.

"When I heard about this, from notes of that NSC meeting - I've never heard anything like that", Woodward tells NPR. He argued that the person purposely put the piece in the Times to anger him, and he has continued to focus on identifying and firing the author, even as some advisers have urged him to let the matter go, said a person familiar with the president's thinking but not authorized to discuss private conversations. When asked by David Martin what his conclusion was after taking such an in-depth look at the Trump Administration, Woodward exclaimed, "That people better wake up to what's going on". The question really is how does trump perform as president. "Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction".

"Dems can't stand losing".

"Well, I don't know", Woodward told Dana Perino during her show, The Daily Briefing, on Wednesday after she told him several sources told her the book has caused mistrust between the president and the retired United States Marine Corps general.

President Donald Trump offered up some advice to a friend who admitted "bad behavior" toward women, journalist Bob Woodward reports in his new book. Similarly, The New York Times op-ed prompted a parade of statements from top administration officials denying responsibility.

Woodward wrote that those who traveled with Trump regularly noticed that the couple shares a honest affection, though Melania operated independently from Trump.
