Bob Woodward's "Fear" is spreading quickly. "But at the same time I'm letting them do what they feel is best".

"The Secretary did not make those comments", Manning said, "so he's not going to own those words".

"But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.

A similar situation also occurred involving a letter about trade with South Korea, he said. The question really is how does trump perform as president.

Camp David is a retreat of the U.S. President, 100 km northeast of Washington, in Maryland. For example, there is no mention of the Israel lobby's efforts to influence Trump on the Iran nuclear deal or of the role of far-right John Bolton, who assumed the position of national security advisor in March 2018 while Woodward's book was still in progress.

Asked if the Trump showed signs of mental defect, Woodward said "my job here is not to psychoanalyze, it's to describe what happened".

The White House has blasted the book, and Trump on Monday referred to it as a "scam".

Some Trump aides, including lawyer Rudy Giuliani, have suggested that Trump would be within his authority to order a formal investigation of it.

Indeed, the op-ed and the book both hammer home almost identical points about Trump's need for adult supervision, his penchant to do things at the spur of the moment, without being "derailed by forethought", his unsafe and impulsive inclinations, and so on. "People closest to him do not trust him", he added, "And the impulse-driven presidency is something that the more people know, the more they realize we're at risk". "He was caught cold, even by NBC", Trump tweeted.

Amid the drama, former staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman sought to seize some of the spotlight by releasing a recording she said was of Trump talking to junior aides during a communications meeting.

Mr. Modi's alleged desire to be hosted at Camp David comes into discussion in the book in the context of former National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster's hot temper.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump told supporters that he would eliminate the federal debt during his eight years in office.

But can he say whether his current work will play a similar role in Trump's political future?

Charles reported that Barnes and Noble said "Fear" was its fastest-selling book since Harper Lee's 2015 novel "Go Set a Watchman", the long-awaited follow-up to "To Kill a Mockingbird".

Listen, everyone knows that the best parts of the book now making the rounds are the parts about Gary Cohn living every day in mortal fear that he had to save America in his own, stealing papers from the oval office, accidentally cucking Steve Mnuchin in Trump Tower and explaining the kindergarten basics of monetary policy to the commander-in-chief.
