Trump was anxious about trans soldiers getting ‘clipped,’ according to new book

In a series of leaks to the press President Trump has been portrayed by his staff as reckless and erratic

Listen, everyone knows that the best parts of the book now making the rounds are the parts about Gary Cohn living every day in mortal fear that he had to save America in his own, stealing papers from the oval office, accidentally cucking Steve Mnuchin in Trump Tower and explaining the kindergarten basics of monetary policy to the commander-in-chief.

Just a day earlier, The Washington Post published excerpts from an upcoming book by famed Watergate reporter, Bob Woodward.

Bannon, who left the White House a year ago, urged the Trump administration to find out who's responsible for the op-ed, which said administration officials had considered using the 25th Amendment to start the process of removing the President.

Trump and the White House, along with numerous senior officials including Defense Secretary James Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly, strongly disputed the book's content.

In the book, Woodward cited an alleged phone conversation between Trump and Mattis in which Trump went into an expletive-laden rant against Assad and told Mattis to have him killed.

Having now read Bob Woodward's Fear, I am struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the President and his administration.

(Bannon) "I don't think there's any one author". "And then this person has said some public things that contradict that".

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote. Porter, who left the White House in February after two ex-wives leveled abuse allegations against him, is mentioned repeatedly in Woodward's book.

United States President Donald Trump has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is his friend and he likes him very much. It's also easy to see Porter and Cohn justifying preventing Trump from withdrawing from trade deals such as NAFTA by suggesting that the withdrawals hadn't been properly considered - nevermind that Trump reportedly said he wanted to do it immediately.

"These are people who are trying to survive and keep their job". "I don't even know why any of us are here".

Mattis and Kelly have both denied the quotes attributed to them, while Trump accused Woodward of lying and fabricating his quotes. But I really appreciate their statement. "We're told the book is based on hundreds of hours of interviews, most of which were taped with the consent of the source".

Asked if she was saying the op-ed constituted a misuse of classified information, Sanders replied, "Once again, it's something that the Department of Justice should simply look into, and that's for them to make that determination". "About the third visit, they come down with three boxes of documents", he said, pointing out that he has time to dive deep into a story while daily reporters don't necessarily have the same luxury.

Asked later whether the White House would list all the things in Woodward's book that are wrong, Sanders said such an exercise "would be a complete and utter waste of our time, so no".
