This evening, President Donald Trump tweeted out a White House statement in which John Kelly, and James Mattis spoke about Bob Woodward’s upcoming book Fear.

“The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?” Trump added along with the other tweets of the statement.


Chief of Staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary Mattis also released their own statements saying items in the book are inaccurate, with Mattis calling it a work of fiction.
