The reporter, who worked with Carl Bernstein to break the Nixon-era Watergate scandal, said using anonymous sources is always necessary when covering presidential administrations.

In one anecdote, Trump questioned his National Security Council on January 19 about why the United States maintained a costly presence on the Korean peninsula. "It's what the president wants.'", Woodward quotes Priebus as saying.

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.

"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. "Woodward would have performed rudimentary journalistic fact checking with those he was quoting, he would have had a more accurate book rather than just being a stenographer for Mr. Bannon's self-aggrandizing revisionist history". "He's called this 'fraudulent, '" Guthrie said to Woodward. "So I think it's - in a sense - the wrong phrase. If a lawyer knows his client is not telling the truth, he can't sit by and let that happen, he can't participate and he must disassociate himself with that activity ... otherwise, they lose their license for facilitating perjury".

Christie, who is a subject within the book, continued to unleash his wrath on Woodward and Bannon: "If Mr". "I would say 'Okay, name me who was there. We're in Crazytown", Kelly said, according to Woodward.

Woodward replied that these "political statements", denying the quotes in the book, were designed "to protect their jobs".

For instance, Woodward writes in Fear, Trump wanted to withdraw from a key trade agreement with South Korea in September 2017. He left the White House earlier this year amid allegations of domestic abuse, which he has denied.

For example, Porter's statement about the book calls it "selective" and "often misleading". "It's a way to say you're important to this story, I take you seriously". Dems can't stand losing. The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book. Woodward claimed to have snuck into Casey's hospital room and done the interview.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on Monday that many of those quoted in the book have said Woodward never actually reached out to corroborate their alleged remarks.
