Gary Cohn Waffles on Bob Woodward Book

Bob Woodward

According to Mr Woodward, Donald Trump made this comment during a Situation Room meeting in the White House on July 19 past year, almost three weeks after he had a very successful meeting with PM Modi at the White House on June 26.

In January, Trump raged about Pakistan's "lies and deceit" and the administration announced the suspension of almost $2 billion in security-related aid.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs weeknights on CBS. We need to know what's going on'. "And the USA "must stop payments to Pakistan until they cooperate", President Trump said.

In a series of Tweets Monday, the president continued to lash out at Woodward personally and his book's portrayal of Trump as a foul-mouthed and bumbling egotist.

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump said in a posting on Twitter Monday morning.

Sulzberger has said that Trump's aides had requested that the July 20 meeting not be made public, but said he chose to comment after Trump's tweet.

The obvious problem is that the people, who force Trump to live under a sword of Damocles due to Russian meddling in the 2016 election, are unable to protect US institutions or prevent the president from deriving power from crises. "And you can't testify because you can't tell the truth, you just make things up". Excerpts published by The Washington Post earlier this month describe a "nervous breakdown" of the executive branch and include tales of aides swiping documents from the Trump's desk in an effort to "protect national security".

Last July, The Times reported that USA banking regulators were reviewing the hundreds of millions of dollars in loans Deutsche Bank made to Trump over the past two decades.

However, one of his friends , Shane Powers , is speaking out about they have it all wrong on his podcast The Shane Show . Miller, who was open about his sobriety struggles, and Grande split in May after almost two years of dating.

Sanders wouldn't rule out a lawsuit against Woodward on Monday, though Trump has long threatened legal action against his detractors that never materializes. "Put it in Portland!" As Barack Obama joined the Democratic battle to take back the House of Representatives, there is speculation among Republicans that Trump is facing a "coup". Because the hallmark of Trump's behavior in this book is, from day to day, he may not remember what his idea was yesterday.

According to the book, Cohn, who stepped away from the White House this April, responded to Trump's unbelievable request, telling him that "You don't get to do it that way", and that "We have huge deficits and they matter".

It was also at this National Security Council meeting that Trump suggested cutting off all security-related aid for Pakistan - almost six months before he actually suspended funding on January 1 - saying Islamabad wasn't helping Washington in the Afghan war. It's pointless to try to convince him of anything. He's gone off the rails. "It's the worst job in America".

The scene, and the book, end with Trump's lawyer calling him a "fucking liar". Woodward's book, deploying several other top aides-including Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis-to dispute their characterizations. "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public". Likewise other stories and quotes.

There were days or weeks when the operation worked, Woodward writes.

Porter said he was "struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the president and his administration".

Woodward was born in IL in 1943 and attended Yale University before serving in the US Navy until 1970.
