Journalist Bob Woodward will be releasing a 448-page book entitled, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” which provides a behind-the-scenes, deep-background look into President Trump’s inner circle and White House leadership style.
The book details on-background quotes from White House aides painting a picture of a profanity-laced presidency that demeans other politicians, staff and top officials.
One of Trump’s targets was former President Obama. In a conversation about the spiraling chaos in Syria, Trump reportedly called Obama a “weak d**k” for inaction in the region.
Trump also allegedly called for the assassination of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad. According to the Washington Post:
After Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on civilians in April 2017, Trump called Mattis and said he wanted to assassinate the dictator. “Let’s fucking kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the fucking lot of them,” Trump said, according to Woodward.
The book claims that Trump referred to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “mentally retarded,” former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a “little rat” and Rudy Giuliani as a “baby.”
“You’re like a little baby that needed to be changed. When are you going to be a man?” Trump allegedly said of his attorney.
