Moreover, he said when the president berates a writer as big as Woodward it doesn't affect the writer much but those insults say a lot about Trump.

The denials from the Pentagon followed Woodward's appearance on NBC's Today Show Monday in which he said that Mattis, a retired Marine general, and retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, the White House Chief of Staff, were "not telling the truth" in rejecting how they were quoted in the book.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpOakland Raiders's Marshawn Lynch sits during national anthem, then scores touchdown Trump declares state of emergency in Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Florence Ex-NFL player tears into Nike: Kaepernick ad "like 9/11 and Pearl Harbor" MORE and White House aides have rushed to condemn the book and undermine Woodward's credibility in recent days.

Woodward declined to name the official and said he wasn't pleased with the official's public statement.

Having now read Bob Woodward's Fear, I am struck by the selective and often misleading portrait it paints of the President and his administration. "That's just the Washington denial machine", he said Monday, a familiar formula created to protect their jobs and preserve their relations with their boss.

"I think you're subverting the will of the people", Don Jr. said.

While Trump was correct that many private businesses issue debt at a time of low interest rates, Cohn was "astounded at Trump's lack of basic understanding" about what the government borrowing would mean, Woodward wrote.

US President Donald Trump says he'll write the real book on his presidency.

In a morning tweet, Trump levelled his latest criticism against a forthcoming book by veteran journalist Bob Woodward, calling it "just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults" and branding it "fiction".

The White House claims the book is riddled with falsehoods and the President has accused Woodward of acting as a shill for the Democrats.

In a series of Tweets Monday, the president continued to lash out at Woodward personally and his book's portrayal of Trump as a foul-mouthed and bumbling egotist. "His message was always "Suck it up" and 'What have you got for me tomorrow?" "And I think we can break history", he added.

"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. "Say whatever you need and want to say, and continue to serve your country", was the gist of Pence's message, according to Woodward.

Numerous current and former administration officials and Trump affiliates have disputed Woodward's claims in the book, but Woodward has consistently stood by his work. A number of top officials have denied comments attributed to them in the book.

Woodward insisted he doesn't take a side in that debate.
