White House says everything is fine, though signs point otherwise

Last year, amid an increasing rhetorical battle between President Donald Trump and North Korea, one possible tweet from the president "scared the daylights" out of military officials, according to an excerpt from journalist Bob Woodward's upcoming book obtained by the Atlantic.

And quite frankly, if there was a person in the White House or the administration who wanted to tell me what's in that op-ed piece, I would say, 'Okay, name me who was there.

Woodward said in the interview with CBS Sunday Morning, 'People who work for him are anxious - that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or financial security of the country or of the world'. Whatever the flaws of Mr Trump's predecessors, they all tried to the best of their ability to do what they believed were good things for their country.

"He jeopardizes things in the economy by doing things that experts - '99.9% of the people say don't do tariffs", he added. "It doesn't work. He's got it in his head, and when people challenge him, he will say, 'I have had those ideas for 30 years, you're wrong'".

"The fact that that's actually being honestly discussed is ridiculous, and frankly it's insulting" to the people who voted for Trump, Sanders said.

She was grilled - if only for a brief 18 minutes - on the anonymous op-ed written in the New York Times by a Trump official that warned the president was dangerously unhinged.

Scores of senior figures within the Trump administration, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Defence Secretary James Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel have all come forward to deny they wrote the editorial.

Woodward, one of America's most famous journalists whose own use of unnamed sources has drawn criticism, said when promoting his book on "CBS Sunday Morning" that he did not know the author ofthe Times column, but that it was "too vague" and "does not meet the standards" to be published. "I'll write the real book!"

"They are not telling the truth", Woodward said.

The column appeared as the White House already was fighting leaked details from the forthcoming Woodward book, Fear, that describes a dysfunctional White House in which the president is not respected by his staff and in which aides sometimes take clandestine action to keep the president from acting in ways that hurt the country.

"These are political statements to protect their jobs", he said.

During his business career, Trump wrote almost 20 books, including "The Art of the Deal".

Woodward's description of that situation as an "administrative coup d'etat" echoes that of an anonymous senior administration official who spoke, in a recent New York Times op-ed, of a "quiet resistance" to Trump.

However, she dismissed the suggestion that the White House would issue a list of specific claims that are inaccurate in the book. A great many on-lookers thought Trump was destroying his presidency all by himself. Dems can't stand losing.

But he told NBC that until Trump he had "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on".
