Trump Jr.: Only Small Group Can Be Trusted in White House

Trump Jr.: Only Small Group Can Be Trusted in White House

Speaking with ABC News on Good Morning America, Trump Jr. suggested that the "senior official" who wrote the op-ed was actually a "very low-level person".

Pence appears to have done his best to stay out of Woodward's book.

And that was before Woodward wrote a book depicting a Trump White House in chaos where aides conspire to prevent the president from harming American interests.

Indeed, Kelly has denied that he called Trump "an idiot", and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has denied that, after a particularly contentious National Security Council meeting, he said the president had the understanding of "a fifth- or sixth-grader".

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who advised Mr. Trump during the 2016 campaign and initially led his transition effort, said in a tweet that several statements Mr.

Mattis and Kelly have both denied the quotes attributed to them.

Among other things Colbert and Woodward discussed was if the author ever thinks about the motives of his sources. "I've seen this over the years, going back to the Nixon case".

"We should just go borrow a lot of money, hold it, and then sell it to make money", Trump reportedly said in response. The Trump White House has shocked him more than any of the eight others he's covered, he added, because Trump fundamentally doesn't understand that national security is more than just the USA military.

Don Jr. offered his own theory on who was behind last week's opinion piece, which claimed White House staff are deliberately frustrating numerous president's orders. When Cohn asked Trump why he clung to such views, Trump responded, "I just do". Democrats can't stand losing. I mean, to try to control the presidency while not the president. While Woodward said he didn't do that, he explained how he works with the sources who tell him things, checking the information he has been told and verifying it with other sources to confirm the information. Trump has referred to Woodward as a "liar".

"You can, in an nearly microscopic way, establish what occurred - and that's what I've done in this book".

Trump, who was the president-elect at the time and had promised to wipe out USA debt in eight years, reportedly offered a solution: "Just run the presses - print money". While he said the book contained "inaccuracies", as Axios reports, he wasn't specific about what the book supposedly got wrong.

"I stole it off his desk", Cohn later told an associate, according to Woodward. "The idea that a secretary of defense has to tell the president that all of these actions are created to prevent the ultimate catastrophe and then Mattis goes on and says, you know, that if we don't keep these programs, which are very sensitive, the only deterrent option we have would be the nuclear option".
