Watergate journalist: Trump wanted to assassinate Assad after chemical attack

Watergate journalist: Trump wanted to assassinate Assad after chemical attack

Cohn, who tried to rein in Trump's protectionist impulses, also planned to remove a similar memo that would have withdrawn the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada, Woodward wrote.

The President has tweeted twice about the new book, writing: 'The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly.

The journalist replied he spoke to "about six people", to which Trump complained: "They don't tell me". And she asked me if I got a call.

"I'm breaking up with you because you're dumb, annoying, selfish, ugly... and I'm not attracted to you in any way".

The article added: "The erratic behaviour would be more concerning if it weren't for unsung heroes in and around the White House".

GREENE: Wow. That tape is just something. The Post released a transcript of their phone call. Why is that? And what kind of picture of the White House is emerging in this account from Bob Woodward?

They pretty much confirm the chaos reported in Bob Woodward's new book - likely what spurred them to come forward.

He also denied specifically ever calling Sessions "mentally retarded" or mocking him for being from the south. The President needs to be one of the adults!

The book says Mattis later told associates after a separate incident Trump acted like 'a fifth- or sixth-grader'.

GREENE: That's incredible. And that was attorney John Dowd, who used to be one of the lawyers in the White House.

"When you put a snake and a rat and a falcon and a rabbit and a shark and a seal in a zoo without walls, things start getting nasty and bloody", Priebus reportedly said.

An anonymous Trump administration official would like you to know that they are what's standing between you at the apocalypse.

He then added of the book's title, "Named after the emotion Trump feels whenever he sees a book". That's all right. Some are good, and some are bad. The sheriffs were enjoying the show and when the president finished, they burst into applause. I mean, what could the fallout be - for him, for this White House, for his staff - Mara? "We're having a lot of victories".

The book quotes Mr. Kelly as having doubts about Mr. Trump's mental faculties, declaring during one meeting, "We're in Crazytown".

The book, which is set to be released on September 11., alleged that Trump's current and former aides have called him an "idiot" and a "liar".

In a statement on Tuesday, Mattis dismissed the book as "a uniquely Washington brand of literature" and said the contemptuous words about Trump attributed to him "were never uttered by me or in my presence".

The writer of the Times op-ed suggests that dissent and resistance inside Trump's White House are even deeper than Woodward described.

Cody Fenwick is a reporter and editor. What we don't know is whether Mueller will accept written answers related to questions of obstruction of justice.

Washington has been gripped by speculation over the author of the column, which painted a damning portrait of the president's "amorality" and his "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" leadership approach. Those opposing him, ISIS and others, are not a side that we think are better.
