Woodward Says His Anonymous Sources More Credible Than Public Denials, Trump Responds

Share
U.S. President Donald Trump

Carlos Lozada is one of the best-read people in the country. The question of Trump's potential impeachment has now evolved into a "resistance" within the administration and allegations of a coup in the White House.

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said Monday in an exclusive interview on NBC News' "Today" that President Donald Trump is "detached from reality" and jeopardizes American national security.

"Fear: Trump in the White House" hits U.S. bookstores on Tuesday after a weeklong buildup, with published excerpts, leaks and interviews that portray Trump as dangerously erratic and uninformed. Although the president rejected the claims, the public finds Woodward credible.

It's a far more rigorous approach than, say, a recent, infamous "anonymous" New York Times op-ed from one unnamed senior administration official claiming to be "thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses", the self-satisfied, political equivalent of a "my job here is done" meme when you consider just how numerous president's impulses get out regardless. "It's not every day that someone in the administration claims that many officials in that administration are working to frustrate parts of the president's agenda and his worse inclinations".

"It's (up to) the Department of Justice to make that determination and we're asking them to look into it", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters. According to the essay, the people involved in the administration's dealings with Russian Federation and North Korea saw themselves as "the steady state". As a result, Cohn kept the president from jeopardizing a top-secret intelligence operation that would allow the U.S.to detect intercontinental ballistic missiles launched from North Korea. A number of top officials have denied comments attributed to them in the book.

"If he's going to sign it, he's going to need another piece of paper", Cohn said. Well, we're paying for it, the United States.

North Korea's Kim says wants to denuclearise in Trump's first term - Seoul
The two Koreas technically remain at war as the 1950-53 war ended only with an armistice, not a peace treaty. We haven't had any nuclear tests, we haven't had any missile tests, which we consider a great thing.

Colton Underwood Breaks Up with Tia Booth on 'Bachelor in Paradise'
Nick in the Morning readers were teased last week about how Colton Underwood might be the new star of ABC's "The Bachelor ". The 26-year-old was then eliminated from the show, clearly heartbroken by not being able to continue things with Becca.

That was Donald Trump in 2013, years before he declared Mexican immigrants "rapists" and himself a candidate for president.

Lozada: It is one of the great ironies of this era that a President who proudly disdains books - and instead endlessly watches cable news - has propelled an explosion of books about the conduct and meaning of his presidency.

Cohn, who served as Trump's economic adviser before leaving over disagreements about trade policy, issued a similarly weak rebuttal to the book. He still lives in Washington.

"He just absolutely is convinced that somehow if people buy, say, high-speed electronic equipment from overseas, from Asia or Europe or Canada, that somehow that money is gone".

And the USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said that she had never heard Mr Trump talking about assassinating the Syrian president.
