Key quotes from Woodward book, NYT op-ed assailing Trump

President Donald Trump responds to a reporters question during an event with sheriffs in the East Room of the White House in Washington Wednesday Sept. 5 2018

"I wouldn't have used it", Woodward added of the Times opinion column during his first televised interview about his 19th book, Fear: Trump in the White House, which is scheduled for release on September 11.

On the topic of Woodward's book, Fear: Trump in the White House, Harrington said the op-ed "fits the same narrative that his [Woodward's] book is pushing, people working to save the country from Trump". He said people in Trump's administration are anxious that the president will sign things or give orders that threaten USA or world security and finances.

On an unrelated matter, Pence said on CBS that he has not been called for an interview by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible coordination between Russia and Trump's Republican presidential campaign as well as Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

Woodward continued, "He jeopardizes things in the economy by doing things that experts - '99.9% of the people say don't do tariffs".

"I have really no idea, nor do you, what else this person has divulged", Conway told Tapper.

The host then pointed out that Wolff's and Woodward's books are entirely different and need to responded in a different manner because the latter has written more than half a dozen books on the past presidencies.

Woodward, famously one of the two reporters who unearthed the Watergate scandal for The Washington Post during the Nixon administration, also wrote that Mattis described Trump's level of understanding as that of "a fifth- or sixth-grader". Multiple officials, including Mike Pence, have denied writing the piece, with the vice president stating that he would be willing to take a lie detector test to prove it wasn't him. Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction.

In the interview, Woodward rejected criticism that his book relies entirely on unnamed sources and that insiders have claimed his reporting is inaccurate. "I'll write the real book!"




- Ivanka Trump, when told she was a "staffer" by Steve Bannon: "I'm not a staffer!"

It leads us to question Cohn's telling of the story to Woodward and why Woodward never corroborated Cohn's story with anyone at the White House.

Actually, Guthrie's question was a softball, giving Woodward a chance to explain, somewhat confusingly, that his sources might be anonymous but the "incidents" are not. "These are political statements to protect their jobs, totally understandable".

Trump has said the Justice Department should investigate and unmask the anonymous author. Democrats can't stand losing. The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book.

Monaem Sarker: President Donald Trump's 20 months in office have aged many Americans at least a multiple of that length of time.

A different journalist asked if the White House would give a list of everything in the book that they thought were inaccurate, to which Sanders replied, "I think that would be a complete and utter waste of our time, so no".

Since excerpts were released last week, Trump has accused Woodward of making up quotes attributed to him and others.
