I was glad when Rob Porter was forced out of his WH staff job
I don't like men who abuse women
But I also started Woodward's book "Fear" today---Audible version--
And Rob Porter with Gary Cohen were two working to keep Trump from signing letter to break the trade treaty w/S Korea....and that would likely cause the military agreements that allow the 7 second warning about NK missle launches to be scrubbed--a TREMENDOUS and NECESSARY advantage to OUR self-protection in America--
From Alaska it takes 15 min longer to know about launches supposedly

Trump just does not understand why we NEED those missle defense systems in SK---
And he was willing to move them to OREGON
Now that is a dumbf--- of a POTUS...

That impulse ALONE should be enough to call for the 25th Amerndment to be enforced...

I had a little more respect for Porter's IQ and patriotism even if not his anger management

All this is hearsay, but in the end Donald Trump is President and Bob Woodward isn't and he will never be, which is what all his reporting is really all about.

Am I supposed to believe that some "anonymous" source was able to even see what Trump had typed onto his phone then decided not to tweet it out?

I’m not a democrat so no.

An almost story about an almost sent tweet.

I almost won the lottery and Hillary was almost President.

Nope. Not for a minute did I consider that. Trump isnít that clever.

Thank you! Woodward keeps doing interviews saying he has personal knowledge of all this. Are we to believe he has sources, even at the level of the Oval Office? I think he has overplayed his hand and this shows he is full of it.

I don't think anyone is proposing that Bob Woodward be president, lol.

So withdrawing troops = warning of attack = declaration of war?

A declaration of war can only be made by Congress.

You actually think the head of a foreign nation is going to check the US Constitution to decide whether president Twitter-head had the authority to declare war before they believed and acted on it? That's cute.
