Bob Woodward Stands By Reporting In Trump Book, Saying 'These Things Happened'

"I do think things will get worse before they get better".

Author Bob Woodward revealed the chilling details in an interview with CBS.

Pence said he did not know who wrote the Times column but that he was "100 percent confident that no one on the vice president's staff was involved in this anonymous editorial".

Other information came from "meeting notes, personal diaries and government documents".

The book also quotes Mattis, after a contentious National Security Council meeting on January 19, as saying Trump acted like and had the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader".

In recent days, Trump has accused Woodward of making up quotes and mused about changing USA libel laws in an effort to better position himself to seek "retribution".

Woodward said in the interview with CBS Sunday Morning, 'People who work for him are anxious - that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or financial security of the country or of the world'.

At a National Security Council meeting on January 19, the president "disregarded the significance of the massive US military presence on the Korean Peninsula, including a special intelligence operation that allowed the United States to detect a North Korean missile launch in seven seconds vs. 15 minutes from Alaska", The Post reported. But if the source were phony, Trump would not be accusing him or her of committing treason and endangering national security.

"Let's [expletive] kill him!"

Woodward's employer, the Washington Post, released audio of a conversation between Trump and Woodward in which the author insists he tried repeatedly to gain an interview and Trump claims not to have been told of the requests. But after hanging up the phone, he told his senior aide: 'We're not going to do any of that. This is where we are right now: A White House official writes that the president can not carry out his most basic responsibilities, has a child-like understanding of policy issues, and unelected and unaccountable staffers are actively working to subvert him. and, despite the furor, it barely registers as news.

The tweet was never sent, reportedly due to backchannel communications with North Korea that said the North would regard the move as a sign the USA was preparing to wage war. "These are political statements to protect their jobs, totally understandable".

"The incidents are not anonymous", Woodward said.

Mr. Woodward is known for his impeccable research and honesty.

In "Fear", Woodward said Chief of Staff John Kelly referred to Trump as an "idiot" and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis compared the president's understanding of military operations in the Korean peninsula to a "fifth or sixth grader". "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public".

Woodward has been a reporter at the The Washington Post since 1971 and remains an associate editor there.
