Watergate's Woodward says 'Times' Trump op-ed not up to his standards

Gary Cohn right White House policy adviser Stephen Miller left and Rob Porter back walk toward the White House after arriving on Marine One in January

Those numbers mark a shift from March, when the same poll found that 54 percent viewed it as chaotic and 39 percent said it ran well.

Bob Woodward's new book "Fear: Trump in the White House" sold more than 750,000 copies through Tuesday, its first day on sale, according to publisher Simon & Schuster.

"A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really unsafe ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren't such good ideas", Porter told an associate, according to the book.

The book is billed on Amazon as "the inside story on President Trump, as only Bob Woodward can tell it".

The book includes multiple specific allegations of high-ranking staff members questioning the president's competence and circumventing some of his decisions, as well as Trump bad-mouthing top aides. "You want to listen to everyone, you want to be patient, and then you want to go back, and then you want to get into their home", Woodward said, as the audience laughed. According to Woodward, Trump made this comment during a Situation Room meeting in the White House on July 19 a year ago, almost three weeks after he had a very successful meeting with Modi at the White House on June 26. As recently as Monday morning, Trump called out the use of anonymous sources on Twitter, accusing Woodward of being "a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms".

According to the book, Trump told his national security aide that USA is losing in Afghanistan. Trump allegedly asked Christie about transition team funds.

Priebus wouldn't have any of it and said there will be a dinner in the White House. For example, there is no mention of the Israel lobby's efforts to influence Trump on the Iran nuclear deal or of the role of far-right John Bolton, who assumed the position of national security advisor in March 2018 while Woodward's book was still in progress. Such gaps in explanation point to the author's political agenda, which the media has seriously misrepresented as being anti-Trump.

"Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction".

"Well, I don't know", Woodward told Dana Perino during her show, The Daily Briefing, on Wednesday after she told him several sources told her the book has caused mistrust between the president and the retired United States Marine Corps general. Dems can't stand losing. The U.S. has it, we put it in South Korea so we can shoot down North Korean missiles if that, God help us may it not happen. "I'll write the real book!"

Kelly is quoted calling Trump "an idiot", and Mattis is quoted saying Trump has the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader".
