President Trump on Monday morning ripped Bob Woodward's new book as a "total joke," threatening that he'll write the "real book" about his presidency.
"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Many have already come forward to say the quotes by them, like the book, are fiction. Dems can’t stand losing. I’ll write the real book!"
Trump has been bashing the book since excerpts began appearing last week, going so far as to call Woodward an "idiot." The book — "Fear: Trump in the White House" — officially hits the shelves on Tuesday.
In his early morning Twitter rampage, the president also said quotes in the book are "made up."
"The Woodward book is a scam. I don’t talk the way I am quoted. If I did I would not have been elected President. These quotes were made up. The author uses every trick in the book to demean and belittle. I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!" Trump wrote on Twitter.
And he said: "'It is mostly anonymous sources in here, why should anyone trust you? General Mattis, General Kelly said it’s not true.' @SavannahGuthrie @TODAYshow Bob Woodward is a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms. He was caught cold, even by NBC."
Trump also tweeted out a quote from a Washington Examiner writer. " 'I’m taking this book with a grain of salt & everyone should do the same. Multiple sources, but almost every one of them has come out and discredited the claims made by Woodward. You cannot take this book too seriously.' Katelyn Caralle, Washington Examiner," Trump wrote.
