Woodward on Trump: Explosive claims in the latest White House tell-all

Trump said his former chief of staff Reince Priebus scurries around'like a rat

"He said 'Donald Trump put up $7 million. why isn't Donald Trump putting up more money?"

The picture revealed - of an administration having a "nervous breakdown of executive power" - is unflattering in the extreme.

President Donald Trump speaks with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on the West Lawn of the US Capitol in Washington, May 15, 2017.

Trump has said he has buyer's remorse about Sessions because the attorney general recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

Publication of Woodward's book has been anticipated for weeks, and current and former White House officials estimate that almost all their colleagues cooperated with the famed Watergate journalist. The book is an examination of Trump's first 18 months in office.

"I can stop this". "I stole it off his desk", Cohn is quoted as saying.

As has been widely reported and confirmed by Woodward's reporting, Trump's cabinet members and advisers are consistently disappointed by Trump's lack of specific knowledge.

It didn't go well, as the president grew increasingly frustrated with the intensity of the questioning, at one point angrily calling the investigation "a goddamn hoax". Trump groused as those around him tried to clarify the objective of the war in Afghanistan.

THE BOOK: Trump's former lawyer, John Dowd, and the president held what Woodward described as a "practice session" to show Trump what it would be like to testify about Russia's election meddling.

The Oakland Raiders have acquired first-round selections in the 2019 and 2020 NFL Draft via a trade with the Chicago Bears . Donald signed a six-year extension worth $135 million on Friday in a deal that included $87 million in guaranteed money.

"I never spoke to him", Trump told The Daily Caller.

"It seems clear that numerous president's senior advisers, especially those in the national security realm, are extremely concerned with his erratic nature, his relative ignorance, his inability to learn, as well as what they consider his unsafe views", it read. "Let's go in", Trump said, adding a string of curse words. Mattis is quoted as telling an aide, after hanging up the phone, "We're not going to do any of that". The president also dressed down top generals over their handling of the war in Afghanistan, saying that soldiers "on the ground" could do a better job.

Aside from Trump rejecting quotes attributed to him, Kelly and Mathis both pushed back with vehement denials of remarks Woodward quoted. How in the world was I ever persuaded to pick him for my attorney general?

Priebus chimes in with his own assessment of how animals behave on the White House hunting grounds.

But privately he allegedly commented that Mr Trump had the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader".

Kelly frequently told colleagues that he thought the president was "unhinged", Woodward writes in the book, according to the Post.

Cohn, who tried to rein in Trump's protectionist impulses, also planned to remove a similar memo that would have withdrawn the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada, Woodward wrote. "You're past your prime". Trump is quoted as describing Reince Priebus, Kelly's predecessor, as "a little rat". "He just scurries around". He's this dumb Southerner ...

Trump added: "He couldn't even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama".

"This was no longer a presidency".

Celebrity Big Brother: actor leaves house after claiming punch by Ryan Thomas
On Saturday morning, the CBB Twitter account announced that Pallett had chose to leave the Big Brother house. He later spoke to Roxanne and the pair shook hands, apparently drawing a line under the controversy.

"The things I see coming out of this White House are the president delivering on historic tax cuts, delivering on building a booming economy, delivering on rebuilding our military, delivering on remaking the judiciary, delivering on cutting regulation after regulation. This is a man being who he is".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders rejected the Woodward book in a statement that dismissed it as "nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad".

It also says he called Trump an "idiot", an account Kelly denied Tuesday.

And the USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said that she had never heard Mr Trump talking about assassinating the Syrian president.

The book is supposed to come out in a few weeks.

"You are not a good witness", Dowd replied. "But I don't mind talking to you.

But never once - never - did I think Woodward made it up", Ari Fleischer, a White House press secretary under former President George W. Bush, tweeted Tuesday.

Woodward did not interview Trump for the book, but Trump did reach out to Woodward in August.

Award-winning journalist Bob Woodward's latest book is being called a shocking validation of the incompetence of the Trump White House. "That I can tell you.".
