Washington, Sep 12: Prime Minister Narendra Modiwanted to go to Camp David, the picturesque presidential resort, to dine and develop a personal bond with President Donald Trump, well-known American author Bob Woodward has claimed in his latest book that has triggered a storm.
It appeared to be another instance of the president versus the administration, as Trump proceeded on one track while the agencies largely moved on another.
Pressed on whether Trump can win a credibility battle with the Pulitzer victor who helped expose President Richard Nixon's Watergate-era transgressions, Sanders pointed to "actual, on record" accounts from White House staffers, again pointing to Mattis and Kelly, "not disgruntled former employees".
Asked how he feels about President Trump having called his book a "scam" and that he is lying, Woodward responded, "I'm not". The economic adviser also resorted to taking documents off Trump's desk to prevent the president from pulling out of major United States trade deals, the booksaid.
Cohen reportedly told Trump to expect interest rates to increase. According to Woodward, Trump made this comment during a Situation Room meeting in the White House on July 19 a year ago, almost three weeks after he had a very successful meeting with Modi at the White House on June 26. But I really appreciate their statement.
Kelly last week also denied quotes attributed to him in the book in which he allegedly said that Trump was "unhinged" and "an idiot" whose administration had turned into "Crazytown".
Colbert suggested that the last line of the book, about Dowd wanting to call Trump "a f--ing liar", kind of "buried the lede".
Trump has dismissed the book, which will be released Tuesday, as "total fiction". "It's been the same all along", he told journalists.
"I think there are people in there that he can trust, it's just - it's a much smaller group than I would like it to be", Donald Trump Jr. said in an interview aired Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America". "The Dems are going insane!" he said.
"No, and you knock", Woodward said.
Mr Trump tweeted: "The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources". Many senior aides have also scrambled to deny they made the comments, claiming they weren't quoted accurately by the investigative reporter. He said "these are political statements to protect their jobs". Dems can't stand losing.
