Trump Jr. says father trusts few people after anonymous op-ed

Trump Jr. says father trusts few people after anonymous op-ed

He questioned whether Woodward was "a Dem operative" and said that the "book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly".

Trump even teased his own memoir tweeting, "I'll write the real book!" "And I said, I want to cover the substantive issues in foreign policy and domestic policy".

"'It is mostly anonymous sources in here, why should anyone trust you?"

The author of the op-ed described him- or herself as one of several high-level government officials who "are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of [Trump's] agenda and his worst inclinations"-combating the president's "amorality" and "erratic behavior" in order to promote a conservative agenda like the one many in Trump's cabinet have spent their careers working to advance".

"I know my relationships with Deutsche Bank", Trump told Dowd, with Woodward writing that the president said the bank loved him and was always paid for its loans.

Bob Woodward, whose new book "Fear: Trump in the White House", will be published on Tuesday, told NBC's "Today" that the dangers that President Donald Trump poses to the intelligence world has "not been treated seriously enough".

Deutsche Bank was under investigation by the Justice Department for both its role in a " mirror trading " scheme with Russian oligarchs that allowed them to launder cash out of Russia in the face of United States sanctions, and for its mortgage practices amid the financial crisis, which regulators sought a $14 billion fine for.

"The idea that the Secretary of Defense [James Mattis] has to tell a president that all of these actions are created to prevent the ultimate catastrophe", Woodward said.

Woodward replied that these "political statements", denying the quotes in the book, were designed "to protect their jobs". Multiple sources, but nearly every one of them has come out and discredited the claims made by Woodward.

"I think historically speaking, that would be what happens", he said. "Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction". But Trump's attacks may have backfired after the Woodward's publisher said Monday it had reprinted his book an astounding six times before it's even gone on sale to the public.

When the Washington Post first reported on the exclusive details of "Fear: Trump in the White House", Trump quickly bashed it - calling the book a "scam" and accused the tome of being filled with "made up" quotes. Woodward claimed to have snuck into Casey's hospital room and done the interview.
