Nothing new here. This book plays out like any day on CNN or MSNBC. I am not necessarily a Trump supporter, however Woodward makes Trump out to be some ignorant idiot. Although I did not vote for him, I can tell you that I believe our economy is better than it ever was under Obama. Because of the environment he has allowed to happen, I have been able to pay off my house.
Woodward, makes outlandish statements about Trump and his administration. Specifically that race relations are the worst under his administration. This is insane. I have never witnessed, in my lifetime, more racial divisiveness than under Obama, ironically.
As I stated before, I am not a Trump "supporter" but I believe that the Democratic party will do anything and everything to destroy Trump even if he is doing a decent job. That is a pretty sad state of affairs. He infers that some how Obama came into the White House with some anointed with some special "president skill" which is insane. Obama did an amazingly bad job as POTUS in my opinion as did Bush. Both, and many more before were much of the same.
I like the fact that he challenges his "handlers". I would rather see someone true to their convictions than someone who is a pushover. Woodward talks about Trump's handlers telling Trump that certain thing were going to fail from a GeoEconomic perspective, if Trump acted a certain way, yet we see that it actually worked in our favor.
IMHO, past presidents of both parties have contributed to the destruction of the fabric of this country.
