The Heat: Controversial new book on Trump's presidency Pt1

"And that's how you end the book", Colbert said.

"The Woodward book is a scam". Earlier also in June 2017, Donald Trump had acknowledged PM Modi as his friend before Modi's first visit to United States after Trump took charge of the White House.

It's a testament to the widespread interest in, and concern about, the Trump presidency.

"If you look back at Woodward's past, he had the same problem with other presidents, he likes to get publicity, he sells some books", Trump said last week.

On Monday, Trump tweeted that "the Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources. 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".

'Imagine a lawyer, your lawyer, telling you you're disabled and you can't testify because you can't tell the truth.

President Trump told his national security aide that U.S. is losing in Afghanistan.

Porter enlisted Cohn for help to stop the move he saw as a trigger for an economic and foreign relations crisis.

"I think historically speaking, that would be what happens", he said. Put it in Portland'.

Woodward described Trump's clashes with advisers about trade as emblematic of his refusal to listen to advice if it contradicts his existing opinions.

Mr Trump said of the book on Twitter: "Isn't it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost".

"If Gen. [James] Mattis had an issue with my father he would say it to his face", he said of the defense secretary, who, according to the expose, compared the president to a "fifth- or sixth-grader". In one meeting, Kelly allegedly described Trump as "an idiot", whom it would be "pointless to try" convince of anything. He's gone off the rails. "This is the worst job I've ever had".

Mr Mattis slammed the book, calling it "a uniquely Washington brand of literature".

As details of the book's contents percolated out into the press ahead of its release, the president's stance had sharply changed. Tweeting long missives accusing Woodward of being everything from a "Dem operative" to a liar who "makes up stories". "These quotes were made up".

There were days or weeks when the operation worked, Woodward writes.

Having now read Bob Woodward's Fear, I am struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the President and his administration.

Woodward was born in IL in 1943 and attended Yale University before serving in the US Navy until 1970. Bradlee was at the Washington Post during the Watergate saga.

Woodward, a longtime Washington Post reporter, has staunchly defended his work in an extensive media tour. However the President resigned on August 9, 1974.
