Fear: Trump in the White House by Bob Woodward

Adjust Comment Print

His new book, "Fear", the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter's account of the White House's inner workings. But the book of that name has set off a yes-no war between author Bob Woodward and the president, using all the assets they can muster.

"Just look at every quantifiable measure of our economy of our country right now we are doing so unbelievably well", Eric Trump said, adding that his father "has accomplished more in the first 24 months than probably any president in American history". As with "Fire and Fury" and other anti-Trump books, the president has condemned "Fear" as false.

On Bob Woodward (you know, of Woodward and Bernstein), he accused him of writing a book about the White House just "to make 3 extra shekels".

On the website, he was quoted as saying, "There was a lot of guesswork when I was putting this book together and I had to embellish a little".

Woodward's yarn of a dysfunctional Trump White Home has already sold larger than 750,000 copies, Simon & Schuster launched Wednesday, a day after the guide arrived in stores. In 2004, Bill Clinton's memoir "My Life" sold more than 1 million copies within eight days.

Woodward's book on Trump is a product of deep research, and hundreds of hours of interviews with numerous Trump administration officials. "The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true", said Kelly, calling the book "another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes".

However, the news reported by America's Last Line of Defense is fake. "Is that really where we are?" The passage was apparently revealed by White House Associated Press journalist Zeke Miller, who got an early glimpse of the book: "Sean, I've killed people for a living".

Woodward's book is portrayed by critics as a sobering glimpse into a West Wing submerged in a swamp of self-inflected controversy, where senior aides - when not attempted to essentially slit each others' throats - express significant doubt in the decision-making faculties of their boss, the United States commander in chief, Donald Trump. Woodward joins Judy Woodruff to discuss his reporting.
