According to Mr Woodward, Donald Trump made this comment during a Situation Room meeting in the White House on July 19 previous year, almost three weeks after he had a very successful meeting with PM Modi at the White House on June 26.
"We're doing this to prevent World War III", Woodward quoted Mattis as telling Trump.
While he has become popular on the campaign trail, Trump Jr. said he hasn't thought about running for office himself.

Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall predicts the base model will priced between $699 and $749 (Rs 54,000 approx.) or even higher. The iPhone XS is expected to be the premium-edition model with an OLED screen in the upcoming range of iPhone 2018 .
Porter, who graduated from Brigham Young University and Harvard and was a Rhodes Scholar, plays a key role in the book - he's mentioned more than 200 times - mainly for his work to deflect some of Trump's half-baked plans and coax him toward better policies.
"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", he declared in one of a string of derisive tweets Monday.

"We have reprinted six times for a total of seven to meet extraordinary demand - that will put one million books in print before we've even gone on sale", a Simon & Schuster spokesperson told CNN.
Woodward's reporting has some critics. Our side is getting all the things that they're wanting to because my father's delivering on all of the promises that he made.
CNN host Victor Blackwell said in a segment with CNN correspondent Brian Stelter the president was so unhappy with Shine that he wants former aide Hope Hicks back in the White House.

Woodward's book reinforces all of that.
