Trump Associates Push Back on Woodward Book

New book alleges chaos in Trump White House

But the president ended up ignoring his aides' proposed edits and "did what he wanted", Woodward wrote.

And in April 2017, after Syria's Bashar al-Assad attacked civilians with chemical weapons, Woodward reports, Trump demanded Mattis assassinate Assad.

The White House under President Donald Trump is mired in a perpetual "nervous breakdown" with staff constantly seeking to control a leader whose anger and paranoia can paralyze operations for days, according to a new book by Bob Woodward. "We're in Crazytown", Kelly said, according to Woodward. "They're not really a friend" despite the $1.3 billion a year in aid the USA gave them". "The government doesn't keep a balance sheet like that".

Porter did not contest having described his job as one third focused on steering the president away from risky ideas, and the White House as perpetually "walking along the edge of the cliff".

Still, Woodward's book has fed talk that Trump could seek to replace Kelly and Mattis. In a note at the beginning of "Fear", the author notes that the work "is drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with first-hand participants and witnesses to these events".

Set for public release Tuesday, "Fear" has thrown an already chaotic White House into disarray.

There was adrenaline working for him in the second half, along with a few painkillers probably which helped him get through the game.

It was not clear how aggressive White House efforts were to root out the op-ed writer, though a person close to the White House who was not authorized to speak publicly said officials had focused in on a few names. "I am proud of my service in the Trump Administration, and I continue to support the President and his economic agenda".

The op-ed was not the only thing on Trump's mind as he called around to advisers over the weekend, according to two people familiar with the conversations.

Sanders said it's up to the Justice Department to make that determination.

It's unclear when the remarks were alleged to have been made and the president has dismissed the book as nothing but a "joke". Cohn said he supported the Fed's move to raise rates.

But neither Cohn nor Porter said specifically what was inaccurate, and neither denied speaking to Woodward. "It's the worst job in America". However, the president has criticized the Fed for raising rates while the economy surges. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them.

Mr Woodward told the BBC: "People in the White House they told me, to a certain extent, they spend a third of their time stopping things that are risky or not really consistent with a policy to protect the United States and the national security".
