Woodward's book, which has faced a strong rebuke from the White House, paints several top aides within the Trump administration as working against the president, who often acts on instinct and distrusts his own advisers.

"It's frankly, I think, sad and pathetic that a gutless anonymous source could receive so much attention from the media", Sanders said of the New York Times piece. Such a move, if it went beyond the whispering stage, would require not only the approval of Vice President Mike Pence and a majority of senior cabinet members but also two-thirds of the members of both the House and Senate.

"Everybody's trying to get me", the president told Porter, the book says. The defence secretary also faced down an order from Trump to assassinate Bashar al-Assad after the U.S. president learned that Assad had used chemical weapons in Syria's civil war.

The book has caused controversy as it reportedly portrays Donald Trump as chaotic, mercurial and uninformed. In Bob Woodward's book, it is also mentioned that Modi had informed Trump that Afghanistan is a mineral rich country but United States got nothing from it unlike China.

Trump furiously suggested collecting affidavits that could be used in court or making everyone take polygraph tests, though polygraphs are not admissible in court: what a pervertedly amusing thought, given Trump's propensity to lie.

Woodward describes the operations inside Trump's White House as an "administrative coup d'etat" with aides around Trump "conspiring" to remove papers from the President's desk so that he can't sign them.

The Vanity Fair excerpt says that Cohn felt Donald Trump didn't understand how federal debt works. "I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!", Trump tweeted on September 7. I mean, to try to control the presidency while not the president. "Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public".

The publisher of Bob Woodward's book Fear is expecting one of the biggest publishing success stories of the year, printing one million copies to keep up with reader demand.

In another part of the book, Mattis allegedly said that Trump had the understanding of a "fifth- or sixth-grader" of the situation on the Korean peninsula.

In response, Pulitzer Prize-winning Mr Woodward, who along with Carl Bernstein exposed the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, said Mr Mattis and Mr Kelly "are not telling the truth" when denying they made the remarks and "these are political statements to protect their jobs".
