Trump Wanted Higher Taxes on the Rich

Donald Trump's presidency has been rocked by a series of damning revelations including a scathing opinion piece by an unnamed senior administration official who described a

It was also at this National Security Council meeting that Trump suggested cutting off all security-related aid for Pakistan - almost six months before he actually suspended funding on January 1 - saying Islamabad wasn't helping Washington in the Afghan war.

Woodward claimed that "the incidents are not anonymous" even if the sources were because he provided dates, times and "who participates - most often the president himself, and what he says".

As recently as 2017, Trump thanked Woodward for saying the salacious segment of the "Steele Dossier" was "garbage" and that it should not have been released to the public.

At the meeting, Trump reportedly began to complain about "all this money we're spending on USA forces overseas", and Mattis had to explain why it was necessary.

The expose, "Fear: Trump in the White House", is filled with quotes from Trump berating his staff and top White House aides disparaging the president behind his back.

This week, Stephen Colbert, a late night talk show host, asked Woodward how he feels when Trump says he's lying. "This is the best reporting I can do", Woodward concluded.

During the ABC interview, Trump Jr. said he believes the commentary was written by a "low-level person", and he said that the Justice Department should investigate the author, as his father has suggested.

Mattis issued a statement, tweeted at least twice by Trump, saying, "The contemptuous words about the President attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

'60 Minutes' Chief Fager Fired From CBS After Violating Policy
In another report Sunday, former intern Sarah Johansen accused Fager of groping her at a work event. They remained in their positions while law firms hired by CBS investigated the allegations.

In recent days, Trump has accused Woodward of making up quotes and mused about changing USA libel laws in an effort to better position himself to seek "retribution".

"As staff secretary, I was responsible for managing the flow of documents to and from the Oval Office and ensuring that anything the president was asked to sign had been properly vetted", Porter said in a statement. This has not been treated seriously enough.

"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", Trump wrote on his Twitter account.

This photo, taken June 11, 2012, shows former Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward speaking during an event to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Watergate in Washington.

He gives one example of a National Security Council meeting that happened about a year after Trump took the White House. Dems can't stand losing. He added, "He and I both know this story is total BS".

Christie has rebutted Woodward's claims.

"The working dinner was at the White House", Woodward, the famed investigative journalist, writes in the book.
