The tell-all book by the reporter who helped bring down president Richard Nixon is the latest to throw the Trump administration into damage-control mode with explosive anecdotes and concerns about the USA commander-in-chief.

The official described a "two-track" presidency in which Mr Trump says one thing and his staff consciously does another, for example with regard to what he called Mr Trump's "preference for autocrats and dictators".
And among its pages include accounts of Trump mocking Sessions and his accent; Trump's mocking of former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and his penchant for dressing "like a beer salesman"; and Trump mocking former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as "a little rat", according to excerpts published by The Washington Post and The Hill.
Trump labelled the piece a "gutless editorial" and "really a disgrace", in remarks made during an event with sheriffs at the White House.
Mattis dismissed the book as "a uniquely Washington brand of literature", and Trump has called it "total fiction".

Then after pointing to reports of disorder within the White House, he continued on: "This is unbelievable".
