According to reports, Donald Trump has been quoted by senior journalist Bob Woodward that PM Modi during his meeting with Donald Trump had raked the Afghanistan issue and told him that United States got nothing from Afghanistan. "Woodward would have performed rudimentary journalistic fact checking with those he was quoting, he would have had a more accurate book rather than just being a stenographer for Mr. Bannon's self-aggrandizing revisionist history".
"Let me drill down, because there's a couple things that, I mean - they leap off the page", Guthrie pressed further, pointing to statements attributed to White House chief of staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Woodward, a Washington Post journalist best known for his work uncovering the Watergate scandal, has gained notoriety for his investigative reporting from political circles - including Trump himself.
"You crank out the great Washington denial machine", he says. "I remember going to one general's house, he opened the door - we didn't have an appointment, I was afraid I might get shot". I like him very much. But I've done hundreds of hours of interviews with people.
How times have changed since the says when Woodward was instead at odds with President Barack Obama's White House.
For instance, Woodward writes in Fear, Trump wanted to withdraw from a key trade agreement with South Korea in September 2017. The letter stated that the USA was planning to withdraw from a trade agreement with South Korea.
Osaka beats Serena to win first Grand Slam title
A few minutes later, Serena lost serve and slammed her racquet on the ground, a move that's relatively common for tennis players. US Open is Serena's seventh tournament back - she was the runner-up at Wimbledon in July - and says she is still on the upswing.
Donald Trump has the IQ of an "inbred tanning bed", according to the president's former chief economic advisor, Gary Cohn. This has not been treated seriously enough.
"Other times, we would fall over the edge, and an action would be taken". Trump said in his tweet.
For his part, Woodward told NBC that while the sources are anonymous, the incidents are not-he provided a date and time for each one that appeared in the book.
And the demand is coming from some unusual places ー Washington's large independent bookstore, Politics and Prose, told Charles it was selling bulk orders to foreign embassies, as diplomats struggle to understand the unorthodox president and hope the book will help them get to know "what are we dealing with". He added, "He and I both know this story is total BS".
Bob Woodward's "Fear" is spreading quickly.
