Bob Woodward, Watergate scandal reporter to tackle Trump in his latest book

Julia Gonzales | 02 August, 2018, 09:14

Donald Trump is about to get the Bob Woodward treatment.

Woodward's will not be the first book to offer an inside look at the Trump White House.

Fear: Trump in the White House "reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside Donald Trump's White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies", said publisher Simon & Schuster. In addition to interviewing dozens of administration officials, the source said, Woodward was given memos, documents, diaries and notes, including some handwritten by the President. According to the Associated Press, the Watergate reporter assembled his inside account of Trump's presidency from "hundreds of hours" of interviews, in addition to "notes, files and diaries", all describing the "harrowing life" of those now working in the White House.

"It will give readers a front row seat to Trump and his time in the White House", said the source.

Oxfam charity sex scandal is 'tip of the iceberg', MPs warn
Sexual exploitation is "endemic" in the aid sector, and the Oxfam scandal is just "tip of the iceberg", MPs have found. Oxfam has been criticised by MPs for failing to disclose the extent of sexual misconduct by its staff in Haiti.

'Fear brings to light the explosive debates that drive decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence, ' the publisher says.

Woodward, acclaimed for his work covering the Watergate scandal and President Richard Nixon's resignation at The Washington Post, has authored or co-authored 18 books, all of which have been national bestsellers. The hush-hush project derives its title from an offhand remark that then-candidate Trump made in an interview with Woodward and Washington Post political reporter Robert Costa in April 2016.

Woodward was once quoted as saying that he considered the quote to be "an nearly Shakespearean aside". When Michael Wolff published "Fire and Fury" earlier this year, Trump personally attacked the author for the dishy tome, calling Wolff "a mentally deranged author" and labeling the tell-all "fake".

The book- the latest in a series by Woodward dealing with United States presidencies-comes out on 11 September.
