Trump lieutenants disavow explosive 'resistance' op-ed

The official described a "two-track" presidency in which Trump says one thing and his staff consciously does another, for example with regard to what he called Trump's "preference for autocrats and dictators".

Donald Trump has promised to "write the real book" on his presidency, to correct a record he says is misrepresented by Bob Woodward, veteran author of a highly anticipated work, Fear, that will be published on Tuesday.

He spoke first to CBS News' David Martin for "CBS Sunday Morning" about "Fear: Trump in the White House".

On the defensive over damning accounts of the inner workings of his administration, Donald Trump set out on Friday (Sep 7) to discredit the testimony that cast doubt on his ability to lead the United States.

The report came from journalist Bob Woodward's new book.

"I don't know why they're there", Trump reportedly told top officials during a meeting, according to Woodward's explosive book.

Another Chinese telecom company China Mobile also posted an illustration hint the dual SIM Apple iPhone. The iPhone XS Plus with 6.5-inch display will be priced $1225, which roughly translates to Rs 88,000.

Woodward chronicles Defense Secretary Jim Mattis not only comparing Trump's behavior and knowledge to that of "a fifth- or sixth-grader", but disobeying direct orders from the president.

Woodward stands by his reporting, telling NPR he attributes the denials to "political necessity".

"President Trump's impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic", the column said.

"I have really no idea, nor do you, what else this person has divulged", Conway told Tapper. But I've done hundreds of hours of interviews with people. "I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!"

"People who work for him are anxious - that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or financial security of the country or of the world", Woodward told 'CBS Sunday Morning'.

As part Trump's efforts to discredit Woodward on Monday, he wrote another tweet in which he quoted Washington Examiner reporter Katelyn Caralle as saying, "You can not take this book too seriously".

The book's premise was further bolstered last week by an op-ed in The New York Times in which an anonymous senior official described secret "resistance" members around the "impetuous" and "petty" President who are "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations". While it's obvious that our current president is no paragon of virtue, neither is he the Captain Queeg of the Good Ship White House, as his foaming-at-the-mouth detractors would have you believe.
