Trump Jr.: Only Small Group Can Be Trusted in White House

Trump Jr.: Only Small Group Can Be Trusted in White House

Donald Trump Jr. acknowledged in an interview broadcast Tuesday that his father can trust fewer people around him than he would like in the wake of an anonymous op-ed claiming there is a "resistance" within the Trump administration.

Trump waged Twitter war on Woodward, calling the journalist who helped expose the Watergate scandal a "Dem operative" and a liar who "makes up stories". Instead, Sanders said just the notion the unidentified official may be involved in national security matters was grounds enough to launch a probe. None of these terms existed prior to Mr. Trump so one can say he created them in order to justify his campaign?

"We're certainly focused on things that actually matter", Sanders said on Monday afternoon. "I think you buried the lead". Before she stepped into the room, aides were seen wiping dust from her podium and polishing the video screens that sit behind her. But she ruled out the possibility that lie detector tests would be used in the search, as pro-Trump senator Rand Paul has suggested and vice-president Mike Pence volunteered to undergo.

The New York Times recently carried an extraordinary article by an anonymous senior official in the White House who claims that he and other staff members are "unsung heroes" who are "working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations".

The Pulitzer Prize-winning Woodward staunchly defended the integrity of his reporting and said the book, which comes out this week, "is as carefully done as you can do an excavation of the reality of what goes on". "That goes without saying", Trump Jr. said.

The Trump administration has been on an offensive in recent weeks, seeking to discredit Woodward and the contents of his book.

Woodward said he interviewed "over a hundred" people for the book, adding, "I would say that maybe half of those are key people". Dems can't stand losing. The two individuals attributed with the most derogatory comments about Trump's impulsiveness and questionable grasp of key issues, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly, have categorically denied making those comments.

But while Trump continues to insist privately that he wants leakers punished - in particular, the author of an unsigned New York Times opinion piece - it remained unclear if his administration would mete out any discipline.

Sanders wouldn't rule out a lawsuit against Woodward on Monday, though Trump has long threatened legal action against his detractors that never materializes.

The back-and-forth over the debt was just the first clash between Cohn and Trump on economic policy, according to Woodward's book.

The book on the Trump presidency, "Fear", made a grand entrance and the astounding revelations in it, paint a picture of a chaotic White House, with aides at their wit's end with the commander-in-chief.

To the surprise of no one, Woodward does not and is not asked to explain why, if Trump's management style has created a "constitutional crisis", the country is doing so well.
