While Woodward said he didn't do that, he explained how he works with the sources who tell him things, checking the information he has been told and verifying it with other sources to confirm the information. "When you come down, we want to walk you through on paper", Priebus said.
Trump's national security team was shaken by his lack of knowledge about world affairs. In his 1987 book "Veiled" about the CIA, Woodward attributed quotes he claimed to have gotten from former CIA Director William Casey. "Bob Woodward is a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms".
While he has become popular on the campaign trail, Trump Jr. said he hasn't thought about running for office himself.
The White House on Monday sought to project an image of productive forward momentum, even as President Donald Trump and many of his aides remain sidetracked and preoccupied by dual accounts of a warring and mutinous West Wing.
Mr Trump is quoted in "Fear" brutally insulting members of his own cabinet, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "mentally retarded" and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as a "little rat". Bob Woodward joins us now live to talk about his book. I like him very much", Trump is quoted as saying in Woodward's book "Fear: "Trump in the White House" The book has stirred a fresh row over its description of Trump as chaotic, mercurial and uninformed. Dems can't stand losing.
Listen, everyone knows that the best parts of the book now making the rounds are the parts about Gary Cohn living every day in mortal fear that he had to save America in his own, stealing papers from the oval office, accidentally cucking Steve Mnuchin in Trump Tower and explaining the kindergarten basics of monetary policy to the commander-in-chief.

The president's eldest son, who runs the Trump Organization with his brother Eric, also dismissed famed investigative journalist Bob Woodward's newly released tell-all, "Fear".
But he said his book "is as carefully done as you can do an excavation of the reality of what goes on" in the Trump White House.
Woodward, on the other hand, has a very long track record of fact-based reporting. This is not a guy who makes big boasts and then fails to deliver on them. "He's called this 'fraudulent, '" Guthrie said to Woodward.

The Atlantic reported previous year that within hours of the tape becoming public, Pence had made it clear to the Republican National Committee that he was ready to take Trump's place as the party's nominee. He began his presidency cocooned from the news and has grown only more so - seemingly (if his Twitter feed is an accurate representation) primarily watching Fox News at this point.
