Bob Woodward Responds to Trump's "Fake News" Claims in TV Interview

The person was identified only as a "senior administration official", although a tweet about the story used the pronoun "he".

The White House reportedly has a list of about 12 suspects.

"You look at the operation of this White House and you have to say, 'Let's hope to God we don't have a crisis'".

"Well before this week's revelations about President Trump's interactions with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis in Bob Woodward's new book, officials inside the White House have been actively discussing who will replace Mattis at the Pentagon whenever he might step down, the daily reported".

The anonymous writer of the op-ed said the resistance inside Trump's administration is not the same as the resistance from the political left.

"The dilemma - which [the president] does not fully grasp - is that numerous senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations", wrote the official. "Why isn't Donald Trump putting up more money?' And you know it is supposed to be because I am smart".

Donald Trump's defenders, led by Vice President Mike Pence, were out in force on Sunday following a turbulent week capped by the publication of an anonymous New York Times opinion piece savaging the president.

"There's never been a more positive statement", Trump told reporters.


The writer described a chaotic White House under Mr. Trump, where meetings "veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back".

"Didn't seem very organized", the official said, describing the process.

The piece does not entirely condemn Trump's presidency, giving rise to speculation in the capital that the author is someone who generally supports the Republican administration's agenda. The @nytimes should be ashamed and so should the person who wrote the false, illogical, and gutless op-ed. If the anonymous author has a high-level security clearance, the president emphasized, "and he goes into a high-level meeting concerning China or Russian Federation or North Korea or something, I don't want him in those meetings".

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores previously declined to comment on the matter, saying "we do not confirm or deny investigations".

Trump couldn't sign them because "this would endanger the country".

Such a declaration from the "U.S. commander in chief on Twitter was nearly unthinkable" and Pentagon leadership anxious that such a tweet would provoke North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Woodward wrote.

Former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo believes there's a simple way to get to the bottom of it.
