Trump failed Mueller interview test, new Woodward book says

05 September 2018

Woodward, an associate editor at The Washington Post, describes Trump's lack of curiosity and knowledge about world affairs and his contempt for the mainstream perspectives of military and intelligence leaders in the 448-page book, which is based on interviews with administration officials and other principals, the Post said. The Post released audio of Trump expressing surprise about the book in an August conversation with Woodward and dismay that he did not have an opportunity to contribute.

Woodward's book, "Fear", which is due to hit stores on September 11, recounts in great detail how Trump's national security team was dumbfounded by his lack of curiosity and knowledge about worldwide affairs and his disdain for the mainstream views of military and intelligence leaders, according to The Washington Post. Woodward also writes that Defense Secretary James Mattis describes Trump as having the wherewithal of a "fifth- or sixth-grader". He has gone off the rails.

Trump reportedly attacked his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, in private even more harshly than he does in his regular Twitter tirades about the first U.S. senator to endorse his presidential campaign.

■Reince Priebus, Kelly's predecessor, called the presidential bedroom "the devil's workshop" because that's where Trump watched cable news and tweeted. "He just scurries around".

The email address you have provided is already registered. He also said McMaster dressed in cheap suits "like a beer salesman".

Trump Lobbying GOP Senators to Turn Against Sessions
With Sessions gone, Trump could appoint a new, un-recused top prosecutor, who could interfere with special counsel Robert S. I have a feeling he took a gamble and supported the president because he knew he would reward loyalty".

The book also quotes Mr Trump as mocking his attorney general Jeff Sessions, who has been a target of the president's wrath since recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation. Trump has called Sessions "mentally retarded" and a "dumb Southerner", according to Woodward.

Some of what Woodward reports has always been rumoured in Washington, but he appears to have nailed down the evidence showing that Trump had to be talked out of pulling USA troops out of South Korea and Afghanistan, planning a preventive strike against North Korea, assassinating Bashar al-Assad of Syria, and tearing up the North American Free Trade Agreement and the U.S. -Korea Free Trade Agreement. "Let's f***ng kill him!"

So what we have here is a White House where many of Trump's senior aides think he's erratic, unhinged, unsafe and above all an idiot. "How much longer are we going to be there?" At one point, Conway comes into the room, and Trump asks her directly, "Why didn't you tell me?" At a dinner with Mattis and Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, among others, Trump lashed out at a vocal critic, Sen. Kelly told Cohn he shared Cohn's anger.

Trump's current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has said his fair share of questionable things on television while publicly defending the president from a number of unflattering allegations, leading to frequent mockery from late-night comedians.

Breitbart News exclusively reported that Mattis had actually told senators that the summit was one of the "most productive" he had ever attended.

"I can stop this", Cohn replied. The administration also released the terms of a renegotiated Korus on Monday that makes what most trade experts consider to be only minor tweaks.

■John Dowd, then Trump's personal attorney, staged a practice session to see if Trump would commit perjury if he were questioned by special counsel Robert Mueller.

He can't even help contradicting himself in a single sentence.

Dowd issued a statement Tuesday claiming he had been misquoted by Woodward and challenging Woodward's account of a January 2018 mock interview of the president by his legal team meant to determine whether Trump could be trusted to testify before special counsel Robert Mueller. "I probably would have spoken to him if he'd called, if he'd gotten through". "When are you going to be a man?"
