Porter said that suggesting materials from Trump's desk were "stolen" to prevent the president from taking action "misunderstands how the White House document review process works".
"Misfortune" is almost about assured of joining Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" as one million-selling takedown of Trump. "Fear" had more preorders than any other book in Simon & Schuster's history, according to the publisher, which has previously released such bestsellers as Hillary Clinton's "Living History" and Walter Isaacson's "Steve Jobs".
The book sold more than 750,000 copies on its first day of publication and broke Simon & Schuster's preorder sales record.
However, the news reported by America's Last Line of Defense is fake. "Eric Trump doesn't speak Hebrew, so you know exactly who he has been reading online", wrote Yair Rosenberg, a senior writer at Tablet.
Woodward's new book has drawn considerable attention for, among other things, the light it shines on the divide between the White House and the Pentagon.
"The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources", the president tweeted Monday.
'When somebody looks at this in 20, or 30, or 40 years, boxes of recordings and documents, they will see that this was very carefully done'. "The idea I ever called the president an idiot is not true", said Kelly, calling the book "another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes".
The president's son dismissed the allegations in Woordward's book and said he wrote it to make "three extra shekels", and was subsequently accused of being anti-Semitic.
"Eric Trump said this morning that Bob Woodward made "three extra shekels at the behest of the American people" with his book". Woodward, however, is not Jewish.
