Melania Trump to op-ed writer: You are 'sabotaging' our country

Will President Donald Trump Replace Secretary Of Defense James Mattis?

Members of President Donald Trump's cabinet denied that they are the source of an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times that says there's a secret "resistance" in the White House plotting to derail numerous president's actions. "The incidents are not anonymous, it gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often the president himself and what he says".

Woodward alleges the tweet was never sent because the White House received information from a back-channel communication with North Korea saying the country would take a pullout of dependents as a sign that Trump and the US were planning to attack.

He said people in Trump's administration are anxious that the president will sign things or give orders that threaten US or world security and finances.

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote on his Twitter account. And given how norm-busting Trump's presidency is - in terms of his relationships to the media, to his own party, to policy - it's also hard to avoid making mountains out of everything, even those things that might be molehills.

Many scenes in Fear are recounted in direct quotes, and seem to communicate the experiences of among others former chief of staff Reince Priebus, former White House strategist Steve Bannon, former staff secretary Rob Porter and former chief economic adviser Gary Cohn.

And in a signal that he plans to be an aggressive counter-puncher in advance of the November midterm elections, he jabbed his liberal opponents - suggesting Woodward is among them.

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

But the members of the Trump White House team are damaged by voluntarily working in Crazytown and many will have talked to Mr Woodward for reasons of self-preservation.

Woodward says Trump drafted a tweet which said the United States would remove families of troops stationed in South Korea. They would criticize the president behind his back and undermine his more radical suggestions, the book claims.

"There's clearly a rising Republican tide of opposition to Trump, and he will not handle that well", said Mike Murphy, a Republican consultant who opposed Trump's candidacy in 2016. Dems can't stand losing.

"The White House is a 'smooth running machine, '" he continued.

"The individual behind this piece has chosen to deceive, rather than support, the duly elected President of the United States", the statement said. Asked whether he has tape recordings of most of the interviews, Woodward said yes.

Woodward goes on to say that he's "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on".

"Isn't it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost", Trump tweeted earlier in the day.
