THE INSIDE STORY ON PRESIDENT TRUMP, AS ONLY BOB WOODWARD CAN TELL IT

With authoritative reporting honed through nine presidencies, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies.

Fear is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president’s first years in office. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence.

Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. Often with day-by-day details, dialogue and documentation, Fear tracks key foreign issues from North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, the Middle East, NATO, China and Russia. It reports in-depth on Trump’s key domestic issues particularly trade and tariff disputes, immigration, tax legislation, the Paris Climate Accord and the racial violence in Charlottesville in 2017.

Fear presents vivid details of the negotiations between Trump’s attorneys and Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, laying out for the first time the meeting-by-meeting discussions and strategies. It discloses how senior Trump White House officials joined together to steal draft orders from the president’s Oval Office desk so he would not issue directives that would jeopardize top secret intelligence operations.

“It was no less than an administrative coup d’état,” Woodward writes, “a nervous breakdown of the executive power of the most powerful country in the world.”

    Another leftist author. Should be writing books on the real enemies Schumer, Pelosi, Nadler, Biden, Harris, Booker etc.. Tired of the bs. No facts. Just covering up for the real crooks.

    I love coming back to this book every few years just to read the reviews of angry MAGAts. It’s genuinely makes me smile, seeing these braindead sheep cry about a book reporting on everything the idiot in office, has done. Anyways, keep writing books that make them mad, it’s very enjoyable. Sincerely, An educated person :)

    After reading this it’s very clear to me that all these 1 star reviews claiming “not factual” are just die hard Trump supporters that know nothing about Bob Woodward, and believe all 16,000+ of Trumps lies despite them being obvious or debunked lies. I read this book after reading WaPo’s fact check team’s book on the Trump administration as well. The books tend to back each other up in major key areas. Bob Woodward is not a biased writer, he wrote some embarrassing books for almost all Presidents of our time since Nixon. It is a must-read if you care about this country at all.
