Trump says he doesn't talk the way Woodward portrays him

Trump has demanded that The New York Times disclose the author of the essay, described by the newspaper as a senior administration official.

For someone who really, really hates anonymous sources, even as he himself has played a similar role on his own behalf, President Donald Trump sure has a hard time pronouncing the word. "[Donald Trump] has a clear governing vision for the country and his record of results is remarkable".

The piece says administration officials have discussed the possible use of the 25th Amendment.

"If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves", she wrote.

Let's just hope this saga doesn't end like this.

Trump's administration has frequently seen different factions in the White House working against each other.

The president said in an interview with reporters aboard Air Force One that the opinion piece critical of his leadership is a "national security" issue.

Donald Trump is determined to find the identity of the anonymous staff member who penned a scathing op-ed, and he reportedly will try to have the writer arrested once they are discovered.

He told Fox News: "What they've done is virtually, you know, it's treason, you could call it a lot of things". After questioning the authenticity of the source, Trump also called on the Times to "turn him/her over to government at once!" as, to him, a matter of national security.

Mr. Trump didn't rule out giving lie-detector tests to administration officials, saying Sen.

Trump is angry about the piece, and one by one today cabinet officials stated on the record, either personally or through spokespeople, that they were not the writer of the op-ed.

Responding to the lawsuit threat, the Times wrote to Trump's attorney Marc Kasowitz at the time: "We welcome the opportunity to have a court set him [Trump] straight".

Drawing on hundreds of hours of interviews, the respected White House chronicler describes a coalition of like-minded aides plotting to prevent the United States president from destroying the world trade system, undermining national security, and sparking wars.
