Mattis is quoted explaining to Trump why the USA maintains troops on the Korean Peninsula to monitor North Korea's missile activities.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says the book is full of "fabricated stories" and said the president's approach, though "unconventional, always gets the results".

Bob Woodward's tell-all book has outraged the White House.

US President Donald Trump wanted to have Syrian President Bashar Al Assad assassinated a year ago but his defence secretary ignored the request, according to a new book that depicts top Trump aides sometimes disregarding presidential orders to limit what they saw as damaging and unsafe behaviour.

A (somewhat) bearded Colbert talked about his (kind of) beard for a moment before diving in by saying, "It seems like an explosive book about the White House comes out every few minutes at this point". "I want to do this", the Woodward book quotes Trump as saying.

"The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions "mentally retarded" and 'a dumb southerner, ' " Trump tweeted.
