The Heat: Controversial new book on Trump's presidency Pt1

Despite Sanders' efforts to downplay the bombshell op-ed, Cooper said the "dust hasn't even begun to settle" as it is "not every day an administration official writes 'the root of the problem is the president's amorality'". "You have millions and millions of Americans who voted for this".

But then comes the very end of the book, which Colbert told Woodward he would read for the audience, "because I don't have the credibility you do".

The book says that Reince Priebus, Trump's then-chief of staff, told HH McMaster, then the National Security Advisor, that the trip wasn't "on the cards". Trump allegedly asked Christie about transition team funds.

At a White House press briefing, Sanders slammed the book "Fear", from veteran journalist Bob Woodward, as "careless and reckless".

"A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really unsafe ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren't such good ideas", Porter told an associate, according to the book.

The book has caused controversy as it reportedly portrays Donald Trump as chaotic, mercurial and uninformed.

Stephen Colbert asked Bob Woodward what made him afraid during the writing of "Fear: Trump in the White House". Trump has referred to Woodward as a "liar". But Trump backed down once the initial news reports, which said the subpoenas were aimed at Trump's and his family's dealings with the bank, were inaccurate.

Cohn did not detail his complaints with the book, telling Axios: "I am proud of my service in the Trump Administration, and I continue to support the President and his economic agenda".

"I think there are people in there he can trust", Don Jr. said.

During the first meeting between President-elect Donald Trump and his top economic adviser, Trump appeared confused by elements of the federal debt and USA monetary policy.

Eventually, as described in the book, Dowd tells Trump: "Don't testify".

Don Jr. offered his own theory on who was behind last week's opinion piece, which claimed White House staff are deliberately frustrating numerous president's orders.

"I'm not because I know what I did and I'm not anxious about any of that", Don Jr. said.

Trump tweeted: 'The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Woodward reported on the scandal. "But someone actively trying to undermine the duly elected president and the entire executive branch of government, that seems quite problematic to me and something they should take a look at", she said.

Though the media has breathlessly praised Woodward's new book, there are credibility issues with the journalist at hand.
