Hours earlier, the Washington Post released excerpts of Bob Woodward's expose of the Trump administration, called Fear - "A book named after the emotion Trump feels whenever he sees a book", Colbeard snarked, boasting he's got Woodward booked for his show on Monday.
Economic adviser Gary Cohn would steal papers off Trump's desk in order to stop him from doing something Cohn thought was stupid, like withdrawing from a trade agreement with South Korea. Specifically, a withdrawal from the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The White House did not respond to an ABC News request for comment about the book and the reported contents.
"Why aren't we getting this done?" "I'm in the process of making some of the greatest trade deals ever to be made", Trump boasted, according to a transcript of the August 14 interview with Woodward released by the Post.
Cohn later told an associate that Trump never noticed the letter was missing. "I can only take it so far".
"Let's go in. Let's kill the f--king lot of them", Trump said in one of the highlights of the 448-page book that was described in an article Tuesday in The Washington Post, where Woodward has long worked.
The book portrays Trump as prone to profane outbursts and impulsive decision-making, painting a picture of chaos that Woodward says amounts to an "administrative coup d'etat" and a "nervous breakdown" of the executive branch. But after hanging up the phone, he told a senior aide: 'We're not going to do any of that. "We're going to be much more measured". Trump is upsetting norms of how presidents behave, some of them dating back to George Washington.
"This guy is mentally retarded", Trump once said of Sessions.
'Don't testify. It's either that or an orange jumpsuit, ' he is quoted telling the president.

United States military confirms $300m cut in aid to Pakistan
Mattis chose not to, a US official told Reuters . "We will listen to him and present our point of view to him as well", he said. The chairman of Pakistan's senate foreign relations committee, Mushahid Hussain, said the proposed cuts were "a sop to India".
The article charges that the book describes "Trump's paranoia" about the Russian Federation investigation, which apparently was triggered by some opposition research assembled with the financial funding of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Woodward and Carl Bernstein have always been heroes of mine, and that included some very intense games of imaginary newspaper with fake a fake "Woodstein" press badge around my neck (I could never decide on just one). The US last week announced it had reached a bilateral deal with Mexico to salvage Nafta and the Trump administration on Wednesday is due to resume negotiations with Canada to stay in the pact. But, according to Woodward, Trump was not finished. "Don't testify", Dowd warned. "We're in crazytown", Woodward quotes Kelly as saying at a staff meeting in his office. The national security team then set about developing options for a conventional air strike.
At a National Security Council meeting on January 19, Trump seemed disinterested in the massive United States military presence on the Korean Peninsula, including an intelligence operation that allowed the U.S. to detect a North Korean missile launch in seven seconds rather than the 15-minute warning the military could provide from Alaska.
Exit question: Can we fault NeverTrumpers for thinking some of these dissatisfied deputies should quit when Rudy Giuliani apparently thinks so too?
Mattis had to explain that the expenses in the region are meant to "avoid a Third World War" but it's implied Trump still didn't get it.
Trump allegedly ordered the assassination of Syrian despot Bashar al-Assad past year after he used chemical weapons on civilians and rejected National Security Council assessments on the importance of America's military presence in the Korean Peninsula, Woodward reports in his book.
