Trump and several members of his administration were quoted have called the book "fiction and fabrication".

"You can write a sensational nonsense book". The former Goldman Sachs banker told Axios: "This book does not accurately portray my experience at the White House".

Mr Trump said of the book on Twitter: "Isn't it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost".

The White House says Camp David, the U.S. president's country retreat, offers the commander-in-chief "solitude, tranquility, and a place to host foreign leaders". "It gives a date, it gives a time, who participates, most often the president himself and what he says", Woodward said.
