Bob Woodward Responds to Trump's "Fake News" Claims in TV Interview

Bob Woodward Responds to Trump's

"We're going to take a look at what he had, what he gave, what he's talking about, also where he is right now", Trump said during a flight from Billings, Montana, to Fargo, North Dakota, on a fundraising trip for Republican candidates.

"We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous", the writer said.

First Lady Melania Trump also weighed in to address the writer of the op-ed through her spokesperson.

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.

Meanwhile, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders issued a statement calling the author a coward and demanding the person resign.

Zaid argued that if the author really intends to curb Trump, there was "greater value" in maintaining their position.

In a rare step, Pence's communications director Jarrod Agen tweeted early Thursday that "The Vice President puts his name on his Op-Eds".

And Trump said he was expecting to receive a letter in the coming days from Kim, which would be delivered through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Trump has dismissed the book, which will be released Tuesday, as "total fiction".

Three players, Thilo Kehrer, Nico Schulz and Kai Havertz, will have their first chance to earn their global debut. Forty teams from Concacaf will compete in the Nations League , which is, essentially, a three-league competition.

Woodward, whose new book "Fear: Trump in the White House" hits book stores on Tuesday, described the incident in the interview with CBS as the most risky moment of Trump's nuclear standoff with North Korea.

"The dilemma - which [the president] does not fully grasp - is that numerous senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations", wrote the official.

Interested in Donald Trump? "It's very important whether this is somebody who witnessed and participated", Woodward said. The criticism of Trump is on-point and damning, as it should be, as it has no other way to be for a President who surrounded himself with associates many of whom are now felons.

If anything, the anonymous sources in Woodward's book, and the author of the op-ed, are seeking to protect the American people and the USA government from a president and top advisors who seek to dismantle it. "Based on those conversations, [I] came away feeling totally confident that this was the official in the Trump administration that they claimed they were".

Meanwhile, denials from key administration officials pour in.

"I have a golf pro who's mentally retarded", Trump told Stern.

Some of Mr. Trump's inner circle also denied it when asked by reporters, including top adviser Kellyanne Conway and White House Counsel Don McGahn.

"Anyone who would write an anonymous editorial smearing this president, who has provided extraordinary leadership, should not be working for this administration".
