Trump Never Called for Syrian President's Assassination, Pentagon Says

Last year, amid an increasing rhetorical battle between President Donald Trump and North Korea, one possible tweet from the president "scared the daylights" out of military officials, according to an excerpt from journalist Bob Woodward's upcoming book obtained by the Atlantic.

Washington Free Beacon senior writer Elizabeth Harrington on Monday said she would not find it surprising if one of the sources in Bob Woodward's upcoming book wrote the New York Times' anonymous op-ed about the administration's inner workings.

Donald Trump almost declared war on North Korea through a tweet, but his defense secretary was able to beg him to reconsider, a new book claims. "Some of the things Trump did and does jeopardize the real national security".

"In regard to the anonymous op-ed, the president said on Friday that he thought it would be a good idea for Jeff Sessions to look into this", Fox News reporter John Roberts said, kicking off the questioning.

Mattis was alarmed, telling close associates after the meeting that the President acted like - and had the understanding of - 'a fifth- or sixth-grader'. He said he had talked to more than 100 people, and that half of them are key sources for the book.

The Times and The Washington Post, which published selected passages of Woodward's book, launched the left's one-two punch, no doubt in an effort to detract from all the upbeat economic and geopolitical news and, more importantly, to somehow derail the confirmation of Trump pick Brett Kavanaugh as the ninth justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

"The Woodward book is a scam", Trump said.


"These are political statements to protect their jobs", Woodward said.

Richard Painter, who served as Chief Ethics Lawyer for former president George W. Bush, wrote that Sanders was "misusing her official position" by attacking the newspaper and her tweet was "a direct affront to the First Amendment". Dems can't stand losing. "We see a general, the secretary of defense, ordered to kill another leader - a leader of another country - who turns to everybody after the phone is hung up and says, 'I'm not gonna do that". "As you know from having read my book there are dates and times and participants - I wouldn't have used it".

"It shows a complete misunderstanding of how this White House works, and what President Trump provides for this country every day is strong and decisive leadership in the Oval Office".

In the book, Kelly is quoted calling the president an "idiot" and calling the White House under Trump "crazytown".

"What you'd like is the President to not worry so much about the short term of staffing, but the long term of vision-casting for America, pull us together as a people, help us deliberate about where we should go and then build a team of great, big-cause, low-ego people around you", he said.

While it's true that the paper's editors knew their correspondent's identity, the op-ed's anonymous allegations will only fuel Trump's one-man war on the media and add fire to his ridiculous and damaging claim that journalists are the "enemy of the people". And if Democrats, by some chance, are able to sink the confirmation of Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh-who, most likely, will be confirmed-the president's mood will become even worse. "It gives a time, who participated".
