Trump Consistently Bends Reality, Sells His Narrative In Interviews For Woodward Book
September 10, 2020
No reader should skip the prologue to Bob Woodward's new book on President Trump, because the author puts his best scene on its first page.
Woodward's Rage opens on the Oval Office, where the two top officials from the president's national security team are telling him that COVID-19 is a major threat to the U.S. and far worse than the flu.
"This will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency," says Robert O'Brien, the national security adviser (Trump's fourth). "This is going to be the roughest thing you face."
