Woodward: Mattis, Kelly denials of his book quotes untrue

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 unsafe or not really consistent with a policy to protect the United States and the national security". Woodward writes that Modi wanted to go to Camp David, the presidential retreat located a short distance from DC, "have dinner, bond with Trump".

Cohn also said that Trump floated an idea for making money off of rising interest rates: "We should just go borrow a lot of money, hold it, and then sell it to make money", Trump reportedly said. The former Goldman Sachs banker told Axios: "This book does not accurately portray my experience at the White House". There was fear among some Trump advisers that if the president felt that his staff or the Justice Department was not carrying out his order to find the leakers, then he could feel compelled to make changes.

In a morning tweet, Trump leveled his latest criticism against a forthcoming book by veteran journalist Bob Woodward, calling it "just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults" and branding it "fiction".

The daily, which rarely publishes anonymous articles, said it did not disclose the name of the senior official in the Trump administration on the request of the author, whose "identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardised by its disclosure".

But Woodward insisted his book was accurate and said he carefully vetted each description included in the book.

Trump has dismissed the Woodward book as a "scam" filled with "made up" quotes.

Woodward has said he stands by the reporting in his book, which offers a harrowing portrayal of Trump's tenure, with aides seeking to curb his worst impulses, and Trump denigrating some of those who work around him, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions. "We are part of the gang", he said. Trump asked, according to Woodward.

"The secretary of defence has to tell him: "because we're trying to prevent World War Three".

"She's obsessed with Barron", one person told Woodward.

The White House says Camp David, the USA president's country retreat, offers the commander-in-chief "solitude, tranquility, and a place to host foreign leaders".

"If that person had come to me while I was working on this book or if it were someone I interviewed I would say, 'I need specifics.' The building blocks of journalism, of truth, are specific incidents".
