Watergate journalist: Trump wanted to assassinate Assad after chemical attack

Watergate journalist: Trump wanted to assassinate Assad after chemical attack

"I stole it off his desk", Cohn told an associate, according to Woodward.

Dowd handed him a letter addressed to Mueller asserting the president's right to terminate the investigation. Trump asks in the call.

By March, little progress had been made with Mueller. "Let's go in", Trump said, adding a string of curse words.

Dowd, who stepped down in January, resigned after the mock interview, the book says. The book offers the first extensive look at dialogue between Mueller and those involved in the Russian Federation investigation.

"This guy is mentally retarded".

Dowd told Trump: "Don't testify". "That I can tell you.". "I've been on the receiving end of a Bob Woodward book", he tweeted Tuesday.

Mr. Trump has previously threatened to revise the country's libel laws, to make it easier to sue news organizations and publishers for unflattering coverage. Sekulow, playing Trump, imitated an answer to a question about Comey.

According to Woodward's reporting, Trump stumbles and contradicts himself during the exercise and Dowd is convinced that Trump should never sit down with Justice Department investigators. "A ideal performance. A flawless Trump".

"I don't want you doing any more negotiations", the president reportedly said. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, before he was sacked, famously declined to deny that he too thought the president was an "moron". "We're not going to do any of that", he said. Trump groused as those around him tried to clarify the goal of the war in Afghanistan. "But my goal was to get a vote, and we did". When are we going to win some wars? The national security team then set about developing options for a conventional air strike.

In the reports, Matties denied he's had to explain the basics of world politics to Trump.

The first is Trump's apparent confusion about South Korea's importance as an ally. "There was nobody taking anything from me". The Associated Press obtained a copy of "Fear: Trump in the White House" on Tuesday, a week before its official release.

"It seems clear that numerous president's senior advisers, especially those in the national security realm, are extremely concerned with his erratic nature, his relative ignorance, his inability to learn, as well as what they consider his risky views", it read.

Woodward's account relies on deep background conversations with sources, meaning their identities are not disclosed.

Woodward claimed in his book that Mattis had complained of the president that his understanding was equivalent that of "a fifth- or sixth-grader".

Sanders responded to the president's tweet live on "Fox & Friends", where she also did an interview Wednesday morning, by pivoting to his tax cut bill, the swift changes to the judiciary branch and acts of deregulation.

Others, like former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn, who reportedly tried to leave after he was disappointed in the president's reaction to Charlottesville, Virginia, protests, former national security adviser General H.R. McMaster, whom Woodward said the president insulted by saying he dresses in cheap suits "like a beer salesman", or former senior White House adviser Steve Bannon, who reportedly called the president's daughter a "goddamn staffer", have yet to rebuke the book. [It] sounded like he got a real kick out of it. I never spoke to him.

"The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true", Kelly said in a statement Tuesday.

Woodward, the legendary Washington Post scribe, also showcases Trump as a dysfunctional predator, which is a completely familiar portrait to those who've watched and worked with the president over the years.

In this latest expose, it appears that Woodward confirms many Americans' worst fear; that at a critical time in their history, they have elected the most unqualified and incompetent president in recent history.

The mainstream media, however, has seized upon the work as proof positive of what its members have been clamoring all along - that Trump is unfit to serve as America's commander-in-chief, and that his White House is nothing but a chaotic mess, in need of adult supervision. He has gone off the rails.

"That was the greatest show of self-control I have ever seen", Kelly said. "So I have another bad book coming out".

Still, Kelly shared some of Trump's paranoia about bad press. "There were quotes in it I didn't like. Let's go in. Let's kill the f***ing lot of them".
