Bob Woodward says he would release book interview tapes if strongly challenged

Bob Woodward says he would release book interview tapes if strongly challenged

Woodward later called Eric Trump's comments unfortunate. It reportedly sold more than 750,000 copies in its first day, breaking publisher Simon & Schuster's 94-year preorder sales record. Also criticizing the book Tuesday was former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who said on Twitter that "a number of the statements attributed to me and from others to me in the Woodward book are incorrect". But to me the standout message from the book - the reason it is still worth reading, even after Michael Wolff's romping page-turner Fire and Fury - is that the president is a bit clueless, a bit vain, a bit unsafe even; but his people are utterly at sea. "And to use invective and this attack rhetoric, or whatever it might be, it sets us back", said Woodward to Cooper.

Eric Trump on Wednesday slammed journalist Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear," during an appearance on "Fox and Friends", describing it as "sensational nonsense".

What these people don't realize is the Woodward, who is responsible for helping uncover Nixon's Watergate scandal, is a professional at what he does, and nearly certainly backs his claims up with evidence. "While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility". "This is a clear signal that the Trump Administration is more than okay with President el-Sissi's targeting of human rights defenders". Eric Trump said Woodward wrote his book to "make three extra shekels".

"Fear" has dominated political headlines since reports about it emerged last week.

That's enough to fill the Chesapeake Bay or cover the entire state of Texas with almost 10 centimetres of water, he calculated. As her son fed the goats in a hotel parking lot, she said she might not be able to return home until the middle of next week.

Finally, a book that makes Donald Trump's people look worse than Trump.

Woodward shared a Pulitzer Prize for his Post reporting that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974 over Watergate.

Woodward's book is portrayed by critics as a sobering glimpse into a West Wing submerged in a swamp of self-inflected controversy, where senior aides - when not attempted to essentially slit each others' throats - express significant doubt in the decision-making faculties of their boss, the USA commander in chief, Donald Trump.
