Inside story on President Trump as only Bob Woodward can tell it.

882

With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies.

Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence.

Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president’s first years in office.

Review

“In the worldwide capital of leaks and anonymous dishing that is Washington, secrets can be almost impossible to keep. But somehow over the past 19 months, the fact that America’s most famous investigative journalist was quietly chipping away at a book that delves into the dysfunctions of President Trump’s White House remained largely unknown.” (The Washington Post)

“Senior officials, acting as lone wolves concerned with preserving their own reputations, spoke to Woodward on their own — with some granting him hours of their time out of a fear of being the last person in the room to offer his or her viewpoint. As one former administration official put it: ‘He hooked somebody, and that put the fear of God in everyone else.’ Another former official added: ‘It’s gonna be killer. Everyone talked with Woodward.’” (Politico)

“Donald Trump is about to get the Bob Woodward treatment.” (CNN)

In 2014, Robert Gates, former director of the CIA and Secretary of Defense, said that he wished he’d recruited Woodward into the CIA, saying of Woodward, “He has an extraordinary ability to get otherwise responsible adults to spill [their] guts to him…his ability to get people to talk about stuff they shouldn’t be talking about is just extraordinary and may be unique.”

  1. Evidently, Woodward’s ultimate finding (and concern) is that Trump has been trying to start WW-3 since he took office, and that his White-House-Swampers have been trying to prevent it!
    This is exactly what I reported, nearly two years ago, in my “UNOPPOSED-federal-filings” (“VERIFIED MOTIONS TO INTERVENE”), posted at the bottom of my page: “SOLVING 9/11 ENIGMA” (a “Salessi-WMD”), linked at my name above.
    With those VERIFIED MOTIONS, I probably gave the heads up to Trump-Swamp-Dwellers early 2017!
    Without those filings, Korea and Syria may have already been nuked!

  2. Woodward is a disgusting deep-state swap creature, neo-bolshevik jew. I don’t care what he thinks or says. He is anti-goyim and has no place in western society.
    He needs to be stripped of his citizenship and deported to Israel.
    TODAY !

  3. FEAR, is an appropriate title. Trump’s paranoia and inner fear of almost everything, is what drives his need for wealth, privacy, name splashing, hoarding, and control. Control is what he has in common with his evangelical base. Fear is what drives the churches desire to control. They are fearful people and my bet is whoever the op-ed author is, Evangelical is their religion. They wish to say things, but are afraid to use their name to say it.
    The White House is at maximum level in The Game of Pretend.
