Despite Sanders' efforts to downplay the bombshell op-ed, Cooper said the "dust hasn't even begun to settle" as it is "not every day an administration official writes 'the root of the problem is the president's amorality'".

During my time in the White House, I sought to serve the President's best interests and to help enable his many successes - successes that Mr.

Trump jumps from topic to topic, talking about the real "Russia story" involving his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton; the deadly Niger ambush on American soldiers; and economic gains.

Bob Woodward's book detailing the chaotic atmosphere in Trump's White House is officially a hit.

"A source tells us he [Trump] shouted out 'Bring back Hope Hicks!' Apparently, he preferred her response to ["Fire and Fury" author] Michael Wolff", said Blackwell.

In a series of tweets, Trump has called the book "total fiction", "boring" and "untrue". During the lengthy interview, Colbert asked what in Woodward's research gave him the most fear?

But can he say whether his current work will play a similar role in Trump's political future?

"And that's how you end the book", Colbert said.

"There's a war on truth", Woodward's answered, echoing what we've heard before. Also, Woodward steers clear of Trump's controversial decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, thanks in part to the efforts of his ardently pro-Israel son-in-law Jared Kushner.

"Fear" is scheduled for release Tuesday morning.
