President Trump's eldest son believes his father's inner orbit has shrunk following an explosive op-ed alleging that a cabal of White House officials is working to undermine the commander in chief.

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

Cohn and Porter. "Their statement was excellent", he said.

In an interview with Stephen Colbert, Woodward said "these are people who are trying to survive and keep their job, and I know other reporters who've heard things from those people, and they have heard the exact same thing, but it was off the record so they couldn't use it".

Trump's economic adviser Gary Cohn removed papers from the president's desk to stop him from withdrawing from KORUS, according to Woodward's reporting.

Trump stood up for former staff secretary Rob Porter, who was accused of spousal abuse by both of his ex-wives. "Woodward would have performed rudimentary journalistic fact checking with those he was quoting, he would have had a more accurate book rather than just being a stenographer for Mr. Bannon's self-aggrandizing revisionist history".

In his first of what promises to be an exhaustive round of media interviews, the noted journalist who, along with Carl Bernstein, won the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of Watergate, told David Martin of CBS News, "You look at the operation of this White House and you have to say, Let's hope to God we don't have a crisis".
