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

The denials from the Pentagon followed Woodward's appearance on NBC's Today Show Monday in which he said that Mattis, a retired Marine general, and retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, the White House Chief of Staff, were "not telling the truth" in rejecting how they were quoted in the book.

"I think you buried the lede", he told Woodward.

"It would be easier to get things done if you're able to fully trust everyone around you", he added.

Nixon was a mean-spirited man who took revenge on his enemies but compared to Mr Trump, he was bold, realistic, ambitious, thoughtful in foreign policy and - it nearly chokes me to write this - a liberal progressive compared to today's Republican party. And you said you would get back to me.

What is most troubling, however, is Woodward's praise and obvious admiration for those who undermine a duly elected president by doing things like sneaking documents off his desk, by hiding stuff from him.

Addressing the steady drip-drip-drip of excerpts from Woodward's book "Fear", CNN host Victor Blackwell said that Trump is not happy with former Fox exec Shine, who he feels has not been as effective as former Trump confidante Hope Hicks.

Woodward's account was reinforced by an anonymous op-ed by a senior administration official published last week in The New York Times that described staffers working to stave off Trump's destructive instincts.

Trump Jr. also dismissed journalist Bob Woodward's book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", which was released on Tuesday.

"These are political statements to protect their jobs", he said.

Although, the commander-in-chief, the White House and several top Trump administration officials have denounced the book as "fiction" and "fabrication", it doesn't take away from the fact that the incidents reported in the book echo shocking similarities to other books written about the Trump administration. And they're in a position, and. they should say whatever they want to say. "That goes without saying", Trump Jr. said.

Trump Jr. also told ABC that he was not anxious about special counsel Robert Mueller's sweeping probe into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. "I don't talk the way I am quoted". And I think it illuminates what's going on, and not in some kind of abstract way. "It's a way to say you're important to this story, I take you seriously".

"And that's how you end the book", Colbert said. While the president expressed annoyance that Barack Obama was taking credit for the nation's economic success, he told one adviser that the former president's increased visibility would give Trump more chances to attack a figure who remained very unpopular with his base.

"It was clear that Trump did not understand the way the U.S. government debt cycle balance sheet worked", Woodward wrote.
