Bob Woodward tells Stephen Colbert what shocked him most about Trump

The only bone we have been thrown is that he or she is a senior administration official.

"Fear: Trump in the White House" caused an uproar last week after Woodward released excerpts from the book, depicting the president as angry, frustrated and paranoid about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. Dems can't stand losing. The book has created a controversy as Donald Trump and his office have criticised the book for misquoting the United States president.

In a statement last week, Mattis called the book "fiction" and said that "the contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

The host then pointed out that Wolff's and Woodward's books are entirely different and need to responded in a different manner because the latter has written more than half a dozen books on the past presidencies.

"We should just go borrow a lot of money, hold it, and then sell it to make money", Trump said, according to the book.

In another part of the book, Mattis allegedly said that Trump had the understanding of a "fifth- or sixth-grader" of the situation on the Korean peninsula.

The Trump administration has been on an offensive in recent weeks, seeking to discredit Woodward and the contents of his book.

"A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really unsafe ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren't such good ideas", Porter told an associate, according to the book. Cohn announced his attention to leave the White House in March 2018, on April 2, Cohn was replaced by Larry Kudlow. The explosive narrative of Trump's turbulent 18 months in office relies on comments described by sources Woodward doesn't name.

Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged in an interview broadcast Tuesday that his father can trust fewer people around him than he would like in the wake of an anonymous commentary claiming there is a "resistance" within the Trump administration.

"The things-some of the things-that Trump did and does jeopardizes the real national security", Woodward said. "It's the worst job in America". The journalist added: "I mean, imagine your lawyer telling you you're disabled".

The back-and-forth over the debt was just the first clash between Cohn and Trump on economic policy, according to Woodward's book. "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public". We don't take it like others - like China", Donald Trump is quoted as saying during the July 19 situation room meeting."The US needed to get some of Afghanistan's valuable minerals in exchange for any support.

Trump has blasted the book ahead of its release, calling its author a "liar" on Twitter.
