Kelly is alleged to have called Trump an "idiot" and told staffers that working in the White House was the worst job he has ever had.

A digest of the top political stories from the Globe, sent to your inbox Monday-Friday. So a reporter today asked Sanders what, specifically, the president believed warranted such an investigation. "We're losing big in Afghanistan". Mattis was not "focused on anything other" than continuing to serve with the men and women of the military, Manning said. "And I think the president ought to make immediate and direct action to find out who the conspirators are". "But someone actively is trying to undermine the duly elected president - that seems quite problematic to me and something that they should take a look at".

Sanders' response to that question was a bit testy. "If they don't want to be part of that process, they shouldn't be here". But she ruled out the possibility that lie detector tests would be used in the search, as pro-Trump senator Rand Paul has suggested and vice-president Mike Pence volunteered to undergo.

That claim aside, people inside the West Wing say the identity of the writer remains a topic of heated discussion as reports emerged that a list of possible authors had been drawn up.

United States President Donald Trump has said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is his friend and he likes him very much.


Prior to Trump's election as president, his financial disclosures showed he held roughly $360 million in debt to the bank, with about $125 million in two mortgages for one of the president's major Florida golf courses, Trump National Doral, The Washington Post reported.

"A third of my job was trying to react to some of the really unsafe ideas that he had and try to give him reasons to believe that maybe they weren't such good ideas", Porter told an associate, according to the book. Dowd repeated Trump's assertion that "this is bulls--".

During the interview, Woodward, an associate editor at The Washington Post, defended his reporting in light of denials of material in the book attributed to White House Chief of Staff John F Kelly and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis. "No effort was made. I'll write the real book!"

Mr Trump is quoted in "Fear" brutally insulting members of his own cabinet, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "mentally retarded" and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as a "little rat". "You ask if they have any documents - because no one who works at the White House doesn't bring home notes - and they say 'no no, ' and then about the third visit they say, 'Yeah, I might have something upstairs, ' and then they come down with three boxes", he said.
