For nearly half a century, journalist Bob Woodward has been reporting on U.S. presidents.
His latest book focuses on Donald Trump — portraying the President as uninformed and unprepared for the demands of his office — detached from the reality of what’s going on. Mr. Trump calls it “total fiction.”
CGTN’s Jim Spellman has more in this report.
To discuss all of this:
- Lynn Sweet is the Washington bureau chief for the Chicago Sun-Times.
- Craig Shirley is an historian who’s written several best-selling books on U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
- Atiba Madyun is a political analyst and president and founder of Party Politics US.
- Eric Bolling is a commentator and bestselling author.
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward has written books on every U.S. president since Richard Nixon — nine in total.
But in all his years covering politics, he's never encountered a president like President Trump. https://t.co/MVS2nQpzoF

"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." https://t.co/UiKLqvGI4T
