The episodes described in Woodward's book underscore Cohn's repeated clashes with Trump, which came not just on trade issues but also over the president's response to the violent white-supremacist-led protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017. "I would have taken that resignation letter and shoved it up his ass six different times", Kelly told Cohn. And he was harsh and blunt with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, telling him "I don't trust you".
"This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many be former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad", Sanders said.
