Legendary Journalist Bob Woodward “paints a harrowing portrait of Trump’s presidency” in Revealing New Book
06 Sep 2018
Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward has shared shocking details from his much-anticipated new book, Fear: Trump in the White House, with The Washington Post. According to the Post, “Woodward describes an unsteady executive detached from the conventions of governing and prone to snapping at high-ranking staff members, whom he unsettled and belittled on a daily basis.” Fear portrays a volatile commander-in-chief who left his national security team “shaken by his lack of curiosity and knowledge about world affairs and his contempt for the mainstream perspectives of military and intelligence leaders.”
Woodward also details perilous incidents involving North Korea and Syria, including Trump’s desire to assassinate Syrian President Assad. On the domestic front, the president’s anger and paranoia about the Mueller Russia investigation is characterized as “paralyzing the West Wing for entire days.”
Based on authoritative reporting honed chronicling eight presidents from Nixon to Obama, Fear, which will be released on September 11, is considered to be the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published.
