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. "It would be easier to get things done if you're able to fully trust everyone around you". And we won't even delve into the part of Woodward's book that reveals Cohn's daughter had a swastika painted on her dorm room door after Charlottesville, mostly because we can hardly process how Gary stayed on after that, and also because we've said our peace on that.
The suggestion that work continues apace inside the administration was belied by Trump himself, who spent much of the morning tweeting angrily about journalist Bob Woodward, whose book detailing dysfunction among Trump aides is released on Tuesday.
Taking a measured tone during the 20 televised minutes he appeared on the show, Woodward said that it took a good amount of time - and patience - to secure the interviews and documents that he used for his book, which depicts the Trump White House as a byzantine, treacherous, often out-of-control operation.
"I think I would certainly rather take the actual on-record account from people who are here - who have been working in this building, who have interacted with the president day-in, day-out, like General Mattis, like General Kelly, like myself - and not disgruntled former employees that refuse to put their name on things when they come out to attack the president", Sanders said. "I think that's a shame".

"And I'm not happy but I have a smile on face because the truth in all of this is going to emerge", Woodward said. Instead, The Times reported that federal prosecutors in a separate inquiry issued a subpoena for entities that were connected to White House senior adviser and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. "You have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this", he said, adding that the Justice Department should investigate the author.
Woodward, a Pulitzer-winning journalist, knows a little something about reporting on a peculiar White House.
Finally, Trump Jr. acknowledged that the Democrats could win back the House during the midterm elections.
"He (Modi) told me the United States has gotten nothing out of Afghanistan". If I did, I would not have been elected president. 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.
Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and TV "hits" like no other pol has had to endure".
