Anonymous official cites Trump ‘amorality’ in NY Times op-ed

Bob Woodward said White House chief of staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis are "not telling the truth" after they denied quotes attributed to them in the veteran journalist's new book, "Fear".

On September 5, 2018, the New York Times took the extremely rare step of publishing an anonymous op-ed from a White House insider claiming to be part of an internal "resistance movement." The Times disclosed only that the writer is "a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure".

President Donald Trump is keeping up his end of Fear author Bob Woodward's book promotion campaign, writing at least five tweets this morning that directly reference the book - and a few that seem at least spurred by the upcoming September 11 publication.

President Trump on Monday morning ripped Bob Woodward's new book as a "total joke", threatening that he'll write the "real book" about his presidency.

She added: "The American people would be better served if we talked about really important things facing the country".

Once one person had described an episode to him, Woodward says, "I would go to other people and say, 'Did this happen?"

Earlier, Trump said he would pen his own book with the real story of his accomplishments. In the book, which has been previewed by The Washington Post, Kelly is said to have called the president an "idiot", while Mattis reportedly compared Trump's intellect to that of a "fifth or sixth grader".

She was grilled - if only for a brief 18 minutes - on the anonymous op-ed written in the New York Times by a Trump official that warned the president was dangerously unhinged.

Musk said he was not as anxious about artificial intelligence than he was previously after "taking a more fatalistic attitude". It said Morton had no disagreements with Tesla's leadership or financial reporting.

The book has already risen to No. 1 on Amazon's best-seller list, but Trump said the longtime Washington Post reporter and editor used "now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources".

Woodward's new book, "Fear: Trump in the White House", which exploded onto the political scene Tuesday, paints a portrait of a chaotic, dysfunctional White House under Trump.

"Again, certainly, the most recent parade this weekend, one of the first times I believe that they have had a parade similar where they weren't highlighting their nuclear arsenal", Sanders said. Dems can't stand losing.

Asked by NBC why readers should trust his account using anonymous sources, Woodward said, "The incidents are not anonymous. [The book describes] specific people on specific dates".

U.S. President Donald Trump continued his attacks Wednesday on an explosive book about his administration.

The book also quotes Mattis, after a contentious National Security Council meeting on January 19, as saying Trump acted like and had the understanding of "a fifth or sixth-grader".

For example, a Trump tweet about the Korean crisis alarmed the Pentagon, the author said.

The reduced display compared to past years earned a thank you note from Trump, who hailed it as a "big and very positive statement from North Korea". And if Democrats, by some chance, are able to sink the confirmation of Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh-who, most likely, will be confirmed-the president's mood will become even worse.
