Trump threatens to 'write the real book' on his presidency

"It was clear that Trump did not understand the way the USA government debt cycle balance sheet worked", Woodward wrote. Woodward is an American from IL who is best known for helping to uncover the Watergate scandal that ended Richard Nixon's presidency. However, some consider him a risky choice because he earned those credentials by defending President Bill Clinton during impeachment proceedings, as well as President George W. Bush during the USA attorney firings.

Mr. Modi's alleged desire to be hosted at Camp David comes into discussion in the book in the context of former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster's hot temper. On Tuesday, former Trump aides Gary Cohn and Rob Porter strained to distance themselves from the book, while leaving its content utterly unmolested.

Donald Trump has been further quoted in the book that PM Modi told him that United States should at least get something from Afghanistan in return.

Porter said it was his job to manage the flow of documents to the president and ensure they had been "properly vetted". "Even his chief of staff, General [John] Kelly, did not know that this meeting was going to take place or that this was a decided new policy".

"The Woodward book is a scam", Trump tweeted on Friday.

According to Woodward, Trump's about-face is just another example of his impulsive and emotional governing style, while others in the White House frantically manoeuvre around him to avoid worst-case scenarios. He was coy when asked whether he'd include the president's side if Trump offered him an interview.

Trump has also told associates privately he wanted tough-minded lawyers who are "attentive to his interests", according to the report, though the White House counsel seeks to safeguard the overall interests of the presidency.

"I've done books and articles for the Washington Post on eight presidents, from Nixon to Obama", Woodward told Tremonti.

"We should just go borrow a lot of money right now, hold it, and then sell it to make money", Trump suggested.

It also says that in late 2017, Trump almost sent a tweet about withdrawing "all USA military dependents - thousands of family members of 28,500 troops" from South Korea. Such gaps in explanation point to the author's political agenda, which the media has seriously misrepresented as being anti-Trump.
