Chaos in the White House Monaem Sarker

President Donald Trump walks up the steps of Air Force One at Sioux Falls Regional Airport S.D. on Sept. 7

He also said he had no idea who wrote the anonymous "resistance" op-ed that ran in The New York Times last Wednesday but, he noted, he would not have published it.

Trump, he said, characterized his "little rocket man" tweet war with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un as "leader versus leader, man versus man, me versus Kim", and at one point drafted a tweet that said, "We are going to pull our dependents from South Korea - family members of the 28,000 people there".

"Unidentified sources have become the majority of the voices people hear about in today's news", Trump said in a statement.

However, allegations that Mattis is intervening regularly to avert national security disasters have once again raised the question of whether military commanders possess the authority to refuse a direct order from the President under certain circumstances.

In his book, Woodward portrays the United States president as uninformed and impulsive to the point of recklessness, with White Houses aides at times removing documents from his desk to keep him from taking rash actions.

White House officials did not respond to requests to elaborate on Trump's call for the writer to be turned over to the government or on the unsupported national security grounds of his demand. He said Trump is "wrong and my reporting is meticulous and careful". Trump himself followed up those denials by issuing a barrage of tweets condemning Woodward and the book as "discredited".

The 448-page book is scheduled to hit stores on September 11 and claims to give an insider's account on the White House working and decision-making process in Trump's presidency.

And Trump said he was expecting to receive a letter in the coming days from Kim, which would be delivered through Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The writer is identified as an "administration official"- does that mean a person who works outside the White House?

Woman found dead, three people missing in Arizona boat crash
The crash happened in Moabi Regional Park , a popular water recreation area along the border about 290 miles east of Los Angeles. Efforts resumed after daybreak Sunday, and authorities closed off a stretch of the river where the search was taking place.

Almost every Cabinet member issued a statement or told reporters that they didn't pen the op-ed.

He said the American people would see through the smear tactic.

The Vice President puts his name on his Op-Eds.

"They don't like Donald Trump and I don't like them", he said of the newspaper.

"It probably won't take long for us to find out who wrote it".

The anonymous author wrote in the Times that where Trump has had successes, these had come "despite-not because of-the president's leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective". "The root of the problem is the president's amorality", anonymous opinion piece writes.

"I have a golf pro who's mentally retarded", Trump told Stern. He added that Woodward's tome is a "big, fat ugly book with all the misquotes and all the lies".

Woodward describes the situation in his forthcoming book "Fear" and also discussed it in an interview on 'CBS Sunday Morning'.
