Bob Woodward’s new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency wapo.st/2LVev45?tid=ss…
"Woodward describes “an administrative coup d’etat” and a “nervous breakdown” of the executive branch, with senior aides conspiring to pluck official papers from the president’s desk so he couldn’t see or sign them."
After a National Security meeting on North Korea “Mattis was particularly exasperated and alarmed, telling close associates that the president acted like — and had the understanding of — ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.’ ”
Throughout the book Woodward writes about Trump's feelings about Jeff Sessions

"This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”
NEW: Trump reportedly ordered a notification letter withdrawing from NAFTA.

Aides stopped it from happening by taking the paper off his desk.

CNN has more book excerpts. Apparently Trump was not a fan of Twitter's expanded character counts.

"but it's a bit of a shame because I was the Ernest Hemingway of 140 characters," Trump is reported to have said.
