Woodward reportedly said Mattis was "particularly exasperated and alarmed" after the meeting, "telling close associates that the president acted like - and had the understanding of - 'a fifth- or sixth-grader'".

Trump's former personal lawyer John Dowd also pushed back against allegations against him, including that he described the President as "a f--ing liar" and that he told Trump he would end up in an "orange jump suit" if he testified to special counsel Robert Mueller. He has gone off the rails.

Woodward even reports that Trump's Chief of Staff, John Jelly, often referred to Trump as an "idiot" and "unhinged", according to The Washington Post.

The book describes a National Security Council meeting on January 19 in which Trump questioned the necessity of the USA military presence in South Korea, along with the early warning system to detect a North Korean missile and even the need to spend resources in the region at all. "This is the worst job I've ever had".

The book says Mr Trump had ordered the Pentagon to arrange the assassination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. "Let's f**king kill him!" After ending a phone call with the commander in chief, Mattis reportedly told his a top aide to ignore the president's order.

"Fear" describes how Trump's aides reportedly steal papers from the president's desk to keep him from taking quick, thoughtless actions. Trump puffed up his chest to imitate former National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and likened his former chief of staff Reince Priebus to "a little rat" who "scurries around".

Trump, meanwhile, continuously repeats that he never got an interview request, and his tried-and-true claim that the economy is the best it's ever been under his administration.

Ronaldo Jr. scores four goals in Juventus U9 debut
The five-time Ballon d'Or victor is the all-time top scorer in the Champions League with 120 goals. "So maybe it's better for us". Ronaldo's stunning overhead bicycle kick for Real Madrid against Juventus has been voted UEFA's goal of the season.

The book also details Trump's preoccupation with the Mueller investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US presidential election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with that effort.

Trump persuaded Cohn to stay on after Charlottesville, but the former Goldman Sachs executive ultimately left the White House in March after Trump moved forward with tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum. Then, according to a summary written by a White House official, "proceeded to lecture and insult the entire group about how they didn't know anything when it came to defense or national security".

"I have the pleasure of being privy to those conversations. and I have not once heard the president talk about assassinating Assad", Haley told reporters on Tuesday. When Porter informed Cohn of the document, the economic adviser again used the tactic to prevent the collapse of the trilateral trade agreement, according to Woodward. But, according to Woodward, Trump was not finished. I've never seen a worse defense of me in my life.

Mr Trump is also said to have mocked Attorney General Jeff Sessions's accent and allegedly described him to a staffer as "mentally retarded. he's this dumb Southerner".

The Washington Post published excerpts on Tuesday (Sept 4) of Woodward's book Fear: Trump In The White House, a deeply reported investigation of the Trump presidency. "I'll just take the paper off his desk".

The president's current lawyers have negotiated for months with Mueller's legal team about arranging an interview with Trump but have not reached an agreement.

The president claimed Mr Woodward had "a lot of credibility problems", adding: "I probably would have preferred to speak to him, but maybe not".
