Trump slams damning New York Times op-ed as ‘gutless’

  • Defense Secretary James Mattis then told colleagues Trump had the mental ability of'a fifth or sixth-grader

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement pointing out that Trump handily won the 2016 presidential election thanks to the support of almost 62 million voters, and that, "None of them voted for a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times", using Trump's favourite catchphrase for the newspaper.

"Right. Well, I assume that means it's going to be a negative book", Trump says, which leads to a prolonged back-and-forth about whether or not Woodward tried to contact him.

The New York Times published an op-ed from somebody in the White House insisting that there exists an internal "resistance" helping curb "Trump's worst inclinations".

It's true, John Kelly and Jim Mattis - both men of honor who've not been outed, even by this vicious anti-Trump media, as liars - both dispute facets of the book. As expected, the demonstration did not go well and Trump at one point angrily called the investigation "a goddamn hoax".

"I do not know of any such instruction".

The tell-all book by the reporter who helped bring down president Richard Nixon is the latest to throw the Trump administration into damage-control mode with explosive anecdotes and concerns about the U.S. commander-in-chief.

Mattis told Trump he would "get right on it", but instead developed a plan for a limited air strike that did not threaten Assad personally. "He (Trump) is also denying it, by the way", Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz told Tel Aviv radio station 103 FM.

The President has tweeted twice about the new book, writing: 'The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly.

He added in another tweet Wednesday morning that the Trump economy was booming and urged Congress to "Pass the Farm Bill with SNAP work requirements!" And someday, when I'm not president.

In his book "Fear: Trump in the White House", Woodward writes that that senior aides to Trump snatched sensitive documents off his desk to keep him from making impulsive decisions.

The Washington Post and CNN reported highlights from the text on Tuesday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders issued a formal response to reporters, calling on The New York Times to issue an apology for the "pathetic, reckless, and selfish" op-ed.

The secret writer, who was vetted by the Times editorial staff, called the president amoral and erratic, and said White House staff work in concert to curb his impulses.

However, whoever it may be, this newly published editorial reveals that someone in the White House does feel as though the administration's job is to build a wall between Trump and America - and regardless of how many are willing to say so publicly, this individual says numerous others are doing the same work.

"It's really too bad, because nobody told me about it, and I would've loved to have spoken to you", Trump declared.

Ivanka Trump and former chief strategist Steve Bannon clashed over President Donald Trump's eldest daughter's authority in the White House, according to a new book that describes the "Crazytown" of Trump's White House.

Trump suggested that one of the lone ways Woodward may have been able to reach him was to get in touch with his scheduler, 27-year-old Madeleine Westerhout.

Mueller has asked the White House for access to Trump, and administration officials have negotiated for months over how that might happen.
