Why did President Trump speak to Bob Woodward?
More from the "Rage" author, including why the president's intelligence team said he is a "threat to the national security."

And so he heard, from people in the White House, people in his circle, that, actually, "Fear" was true, and that I would not put words in his mouth, if he talked to me."

Trump knew that he was being Tape Recorded so, he knew what he was doing.
