Woodward: Trump Is 'Detached' From Reality, Jeopardizes National Security

US President Donald Trump has demanded the New York Times to hand over the anonymous author of an op-ed against him to national security

Last week, the day after the Post first reported the contents of Woodward's book, the New York Times published an op ed entitled I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration and attributed to an anonymous "senior official". "The incidents are not anonymous, it gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often the president himself and what he says". We also learned that Gary Cohn, one of President Trump's advisors, lifted a letter off Trump's desk so that the president wouldn't act on his worrisome threat to scuttle a trade deal with South Korea.

"The idea that the Secretary of Defense has to tell the president that all of these actions are created to prevent the ultimate catastrophe", Woodward said.

As recently as Monday morning, Trump called out the use of anonymous sources on Twitter, accusing Woodward of being "a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms".

Goldberg said it will be hard for the administration to zero in on who the anonymous author is because the number of White House officials who respect Trump is "infinitesimal".

Last year when Bitcoin dominance was over 50%, conditions of the market were different compare to what is obtained this year. The study also showed that men are more aware of Bitcoin (BTC ) and cryptocurrencies in comparison to women.

US Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, in turn, is quoted as saying the president has the mental capacity of a "fifth or sixth grader", while current chief of staff John Kelly is quoted as calling Trump "an idiot".

Goldberg noted that the new book by veteran reporter Bob Woodward also portrays a chaotic Trump White House filled with second-guessing by members of Trump's staff, who repeatedly bad-mouth him behind closed doors. Woodward said that he interviewed more than 100 people, including one person nine times. They would criticize the president behind his back and undermine his more radical suggestions, the book claims.

Here are four of the most ludicrous things Trump had to say about the senior official's New York Times piece. By 10:50 am ET, Trump had tweeted or re-tweeted 15 times today, including a definitely not-canon Charlie Brown cartoon panel.

I just feel like not only is my future bright, even though I'm not a spring chicken, but I still have a very, very bright future. He also said everyone does it and usually is not called for it. "To lose a game for saying that is not fair", Williams said.

In an online introduction, the Times says the author's "identity is known to us" and the person's 'job would be jeopardized by its disclosure.

"It'll make the White House more paranoid than it has been before", Ponnuru said.

"In that moment there was a sense of profound alarm in the Pentagon leadership that, my God, one tweet and we have reliable information that the North Koreans are going to read this as "an attack is imminent", Woodward said.

On NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway admitted: "I didn't bring the request to the president directly". Mr. Trump said, "Real power is, I don't even want to use the word, fear".

Xi to attend Russian Federation summit, North Korea’s Kim invited
Kim reportedly complained about the USA negotiating in bad faith and regretted the doubts raised about his commitment to peace. North Korea's message has been delivered to White House National Security Adviser John Bolton , Seoul said.

The essay said members of the administration were running a "two-track presidency", achieving Republican policy aims while sidelining the "amoral ... impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" Trump until he was out of office.
