The New York Times' reviewer wrote: "We knew things were bad".

In a statement, Mr Kelly said: "The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true, in fact it's exactly the opposite".

According to the book, Trump told his national security aide that United States is losing in Afghanistan.

"I wouldn't have used it", Woodward added of the Times opinion column during his first televised interview about his 19th book, Fear: Trump in the White House, which is scheduled for release on September 11.

Among the revelations in the book: Cohn once removed a document from the president's desk that would have ended a trade deal with South Korea. "A source tells us he [Trump] shouted out 'Bring back Hope Hicks!' Apparently, he preferred her response to ["Fire and Fury" author] Michael Wolff", said Blackwell. "I would say 'Okay, name me who was there". And Trump says, "Who's paying for it?" The media have "left out part of the story: repeated, credible charges - including from well-respected fellow journalists - that in previous books Woodward embellished the truth, made dubious bombshell claims or was otherwise misleading", The Daily Caller's Peter Hasson details in an extensive report. 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.

"Trump pivoted", Woodward writes.

Woodward's book is now available through third-party sellers on Amazon but displays a shipping estimate of "one to three weeks", implying a serious shortage of copies. The goal of the meeting was for Goldman Sachs' then-president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn to brief president-elect Trump on the economy.

In a statement last week, Mattis called the book "fiction" and said that "the contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence". "Bob Woodward is a liar who is like a Dem operative prior to the Midterms". Some former White House officials who spoke with Woodward have tried to distance themselves from the book.

Reader interest in the inner workings of the Trump White House is showing no signs of fading. Also, Woodward steers clear of Trump's controversial decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem, thanks in part to the efforts of his ardently pro-Israel son-in-law Jared Kushner. The book will be released on Tuesday.
