Bob Woodward's Book Goes on Sale as Ex-Trump Aides Push Back

Trump told journalists he "really" appreciated the pair's statements, which helped show that "the book is just a piece of fiction". The former Goldman Sachs banker told Axios: "This book does not accurately portray my experience at the White House. Woodward or any member of his staff would have called me, as a person they were quoting, for standard fact checking", Christie said on Twitter.

But neither Cohn nor Porter said specifically what was inaccurate, and neither denied speaking to Woodward. They provided The Daily Mail with photographic evidence they said backed up their claims, which Porter has denied.

Washington journalist Bob Woodward shrugged off suggestions that his controversial book "Fear" has driven a wedge between President Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

And Woodward, the victor of two Pulitzer prizes, said, "I'm not".

Trump also defended former Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who was running for an Alabama vacancy and was accused of engaging in sexual misconduct with teenagers when he was in his 30s.

After the chemical attack on Syrian civilians in April 2017, which prompted outrage across the world, Mr Trump reportedly said: "Let's f****** kill him!" He also called Woodward a "liar" and a "Dem operative". Trump asked, according to Woodward.

Trump's economic adviser Gary Cohn removed papers from the president's desk to stop him from withdrawing from KORUS, according to Woodward's reporting. Hall said he believes the current landscape is not amendable to impeaching Donald Trump, but that would change if Democrats regain control of the House and Senate.

The anonymous official, identified only as "a senior official in the Trump administration", launched a almost unprecedented attack on the President in the op-ed, saying Trump's "erratic" and "amoral" behaviour is "detrimental" to America's health.

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

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". "People closest to him do not trust him", he added, "And the impulse-driven presidency is something that the more people know, the more they realize we're at risk". Woodward's book, has said the book is based on "hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, contemporaneous meeting notes, files, documents and personal diaries".

"If that person had come to me while I was working on this book or if it were someone I interviewed I would say, 'I need specifics.' The building blocks of journalism, of truth, are specific incidents".
