Trump says he's 'exact opposite' of book

The Latest Trump denies saying Sessions ‘mentally retarded

Trump and members of his staff had already spent much of the day trying to discredit Woodward's book when the Times op-ed, sending the administration into damage control once more. "He made this up to divide!", Trump said in the Tweet.

"He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russian Federation, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behaviour". We fully recognize what is happening.

"Nearly 62 million people voted for President Donald J. Trump in 2016, earning him 306 Electoral College votes - versus 232 for his opponent".

Trump responded to the op-ed within an hour and a half of it being published during a White House event with local sheriffs - calling it "gutless" because it was published anonymously and saying it was "really a disgrace".

"When you tell me about some anonymous source within the administration, probably who's failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons now, and The New York Times is failing", Mr. Trump added later. She also accused the individual of putting himself or herself ahead of the will of the American people. "This coward should do the right thing and resign", the statement concluded.

From the White House to the executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief's comments and actions, the writer claimed.

Jacobs, who has studied the presidency for 30 years and often written about it, said there's nothing in recent White House history that compares to this development.

These revelations will be greeted among Republicans not as a sign of Trump's unfitness for office - which they are - but as more evidence of a conspiracy among the "fake news media" against their electoral hero. The two were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Cohn, who tried to rein in Trump's protectionist impulses, also planned to remove a similar memo that would have withdrawn the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement with Mexico and Canada, Woodward wrote. John McCain - do they suggest someone working in national security?

It has never been used to strip a president from power and would be a complicated process. "Never put more than one page in front of him".

"The root of the problem is the president's amorality", the person wrote.

The assertions in the column were largely in line with complaints about Trump's behavior that have repeatedly been raised by various administration officials, often speaking on condition of anonymity.

"We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardised by its disclosure. 'So, it sounds like you're on the fence about going to prom with me?'"

The official said that early on in the administration, some officials quietly discussed invoking the 25th amendment of the US Constitution, which allows the removal of a president judged unable to perform his duties. It requires that the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet back relieving the president.

The official dubbed the group of resistors the "steady state", rather than the so-called "deep state" that Trump has repeatedly railed against.
