Some pretty explosive details are leaking from Bob Woodward’s new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House.” The book hits the shelves a week from today, but two reporters from the Washington Post got a chance to preview the book, Philip Rucker and Robert Costa.

One of the things that will perhaps get under Donald Trump’s skin the most is this quote from his Chief-of-Staff.

Some accounts of the book say it outlines a “national emergency.”

Read the complete review here, but here are some of the other striking quotes.

On North Korea. The Washington Post reports:

At a National Security Council meeting on Jan. 19, Trump disregarded the significance of the massive U.S. military presence on the Korean Peninsula, including a special intelligence operation that allows the United States to detect a North Korean missile launch in seven seconds vs. 15 minutes from Alaska, according to Woodward. Trump questioned why the government was spending resources in the region at all.

“We’re doing this in order to prevent World War III,” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told him.

After Trump left the meeting, Woodward recounts, “Mattis was particularly exasperated and alarmed, telling close associates that the president acted like — and had the understanding of — ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.’ ”
