As Bob Woodward was working on his book about the Trump presidency, which comes out Sept. 11 (see separate story), he attempted to get an interview with Donald Trump but was unable to get one. Woodward, who is an associate editor at The Washington Post, finally did get a call from Trump in early August — too late for the book — in which the main topic was why the two men never connected.
“Over the course of 11-plus minutes, Trump repeatedly claimed his White House staff hadn’t informed him of Woodward’s interview request — despite also admitting Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) had told him Woodward wanted to talk,” The Post reports. “He also started the phone call by saying Woodward had ‘always been fair’ to him, but by the end said the book would be ‘inaccurate.'”
