    Bob Woodward's new book mirrors the claims made by the Atlantic regarding Trump and the military

    Elsewhere in Mr. Woodward's book, "Rage," the former Secretary of Defense of Mr. Trump quoted General Jim Mattis as telling the former director of national intelligence that Mr. Trump was "dangerous" and "unsuitable" for the presidency . And the former director of the national secret service believed that Russia had "something" in Mr. Trump.

    Mr Mattis and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats struggled to communicate the threat Mr Trump posed to the security of the nation. Haunted by Mr. Trump's tweets, Mr. Coats believed that Mr. Trump's gentle approach to Russia reflected something more sinister.

    "Maybe at some point we have to get up and speak up," Mattis told Mr. Coats during a conversation in May 2019, according to the book, which will be in stores next week. "There may be a time when we need to take collective action."

    According to Woodward, when Mr. Mattis resigned after Mr. Trump wanted to withdraw troops fighting the Islamic State in the Middle East, if I strategically endanger our place in the world and everything else, I will resign. "

    Mr. Coats, who learned he was fired from his position in July 2019 from a New York Times article published online on the golf course at Mr. Trump's private club, was chewed on after a briefing with Mr. Trump reporters the threat Russia posed to the nation's electoral systems. Mr. Coats had gone further than he and the President had discussed earlier.

    "What kind of briefing was that?" he asked, apparently angry about the focus on Russia. "Why did you do that?"

    Mr Trump complained about the various investigations into his campaign and Russia and, according to the book, relied on Mr Coats to either narrow the federal investigation or to publicly reiterate the conclusions of the Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation that there was no conspiracy. Mr. Coats tried to explain that, according to the book, this was beyond what he could see.

    At one point, Mr Trump groaned that the investigation was affecting his skills as president.

    "Putin said to me in a meeting that he said it was a shame because I know that it is very difficult for you to get a deal with us. I said you are right," said Mr. Trump.

    Trump gave Bob Woodward up to 18 hours of interview time between winter and spring. Though it's hard to imagine that Trump would expect Woodward to write a less critical book. Woodward documents that Trump realized early on that the coronavirus pandemic was going to be a very serious crisis. But Trump publicly denied the virus threat weeks after admitting to Woodward that it was indeed serious.
