also said, according to Woodward, that Modi told him the United States had "gotten nothing out of Afghanistan".

For instance, Woodward writes in Fear, Trump wanted to withdraw from a key trade agreement with South Korea in September 2017.

The president also floated an idea for making money from the recent rise in interest rates, according to Woodward. "But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.


Gary Cohn, who was the chief White House economic advisor, went so far previous year as to steal an order from Trump's desk that, if the president had signed it, would have cancelled the US-South Korea trade agreement. Instead, Sanders said just the notion the unidentified official may be involved in national security matters was grounds enough to launch a probe. The tweets attracted widespread attention and concern - "the Internet lost its collective mind", as Woodward wrote in his book.

Bob Woodward, associate editor of the Washington Post, has recently published an explosive book on the current U.S. presidency.

Mattis issued a statement, tweeted at least twice by Trump, saying, "The contemptuous words about the President attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence". "Even more than that, what do we get from protecting Taiwan, say?"


Woodward's book (published by Simon & Schuster, a division of CBS) paints a picture of disorder within the Trump White House and features devastating quotes from administration officials about its inner workings.

"As anyone who has worked for Trump knows and I think that establishes this also", Woodward told Perino, "that it's very hard to control Trump". Woodward's book, has said the book is based on "hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, contemporaneous meeting notes, files, documents and personal diaries". "It's critical: Who is this person and why are they masking themselves in this way?"

The book is number 8 on Amazon's Top 20 most sold and most read books of the week and Fear is already the sixth biggest seller of 2018 on Amazon, CNN reported.
