Bob Woodward: Trump Almost Started A WAR With North Korea

The author of the book Fear: Trump in the White House, Bob Woodward, said that president Donald Trump almost single-handedly started a war with North Korea with a single tweet. Woodward, who is a well-known investigative journalist discussed Trump’s tweet in an interview with CBS that aired Sunday.

Last October, Trump tweeted that his secretary of state at the time, Rex Tillerson, was “wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” a nickname for North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. According to Woodward’s book, Trump told Rob Porter, then a staff secretary, that the tweet “may be my best ever.”

According to Woodward, Porter asked the president whether the tweet might provoke dictator Kim, to which Trump reportedly replied: “It’s leader versus leader. Man versus man. Me versus Kim.” According to Business Insider, Woodward told CBS the most “dangerous” moment of Trump’s standoff with Kim came when the president went to produce another provocative tweet. “He drafts a tweet saying, ‘We are going to pull our dependents from South Korea — family members of the 28,000 people there,'” Woodward told CBS.

Woodward claims that the tweet was never sent out because it would have been seen as an act of war against North Korea. “In that moment, there was a sense of profound alarm in the Pentagon leadership that, my God, one tweet and we have reliable information that the North Koreans are going to read this as ‘an attack is imminent,'” Woodward said.

According to Business Insider, Woodward also said Trump’s staffers were concerned that the president could make an impulsive decision that could have major global consequences. “People who work for him are worried that he will sign things or give orders that threaten the national security or the financial security of the country or the world,” Woodward said.

Although Trump has been successful at cooling the heated rhetoric and lowering tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, it does appear the new and improved relations could only be temporary.

    Its doubtful that was war worthy for NK.

    The anti-Trump crowd is making a huge push before the upcoming elections to try to get a Democrat win and take over the House so they can do an impeachment of Trump.

    Little of truth or importance is going to be coming out, they will just blow anything and everything possible to a hysterical level to try to achieve their goals.

    Don’t fall for BS masquerading as truth, and don’t let your friends and family fall for it either.

  3. Sheep Dog says:

    FAKE NEWS
    Not substantiated.

    Soooo your saying that Trump actually has a set of balls?

  5. Fling says:

    Woodward is better known for his falsehoods than his truths. Former patron of Plato Club in NYC along with John Bolton and most of the degenerate, immoral inhabitants of DC swamp.

    Dr. Steve Petchenick has Woodward’s history down cold. Woodward is a liar and fiction-writer.

  6. Fling says:

    Democrats will swallow this article hook, line and sinker. Leftists will believe anything.

  7. Maranatha says:

    What is the goal? To dethrone Kim and get some stable person in that job and hopefully with fair elections and not a despot.

    China desperately wants stability as Kim is the third unstable moron in that position. But he’s got chemical weapons, long range artillery, nerve gas, germ warfare, EMP capacity and likely two satellite platforms, and nukes.

    He also is sitting on a massive amount of rare earth minerals.

    China wants reunification which would totally alter the balance of power. If South Korea goes for it, and the younger generation desires this, then Japan would have to create new partnerships with China and a unified Korea.

    China hates that North Koreans illegally flee to China,but Chinese men love it. North Korea runs drugs and this hurts China. The other biggest money makers are illegal arms sales and tech and slavery rings. This is a constant source of embarrassment for China.

    The simplest way is to disappear Kim or declare he died due a sudden illness. The USA would understand and it would help overcome many trade difficulties. But ultimately the USA does not want a unified Korea unless it is not under the aegis of China. That relationship goes back to samurai days and the Imjin War.

    Now what does China do if they become one westernized country and no longer have famines and become a major player in electronics due to rare earth minerals?

    • Plan twice, prep once says:

      The CIA Deep State controlled several top NK generals. They, via CIA info appeared to be infallible and all seeing to Kim and his father. This deep state CIA faction fed NK nuclear plans and hoped to make NK a burden on America for future decades. It was all about control.

      Word is Trump gave Kim their names and they are now dead. They never worked for America, they always worked for the criminal deep state.

      Trump told Kim he and his nation had been played for decades by the CIA deep state.

      Do you grasp how Trump broke through?

      China hasn’t fully grasped this. Current trade negotiations are dancing around the truth.

  8. Bob Woodward is not an investigative reporter. He is a deep state tool who is handed info from his handlers. In the Nixon case, a deep state FBI official was deep throat. They handed Woodward the story.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Isn’t that why the Deep State (CIA?) told their stooge Kim to back off, for the time being?

  10. aljamo says:

    US gave China all of America’s jobs. Who made that call? Unions in bed with corporations rather than representing workers. Cost of living through the roof. Who made those calls? Who represents the American people? Easy answer, nobody in government clearly.

  11. Any intelligent American who believes Bob Woodward needs a Psychiatric Evaluation; consider him a ‘super-refined’ (non-emotional) Maxine Walters, another deep state operative, this one in a suit.

    While we’re on the subject, I’m not totally convinced Mark Felt was Deep Throat. Deep Throat might have been a few people– maybe Felt was one of them. Who knows?

    I would expect the REAL Deep Throat to write a best selling book years after Watergate admitting to the identity and explaining why he (they?) did what they did. Especially when all the major players are dead or elderly. But Deep Throat did not. How convenient Woodward named him as Felt. The fullest truth about Watergate has yet to be written.

    At any rate, I would no more touch Woodward’s book than I would touch Bush’s or Obama’s.

    Lastly, look up Judge Jeanine’s YouTube of her 9/8/18 show RIPPING Obama for his vicious Trump speech. It’s quite satisfying. That woman knows how to put forth truth. Class act all the way, she is fearless, passionate, and speaks truth, rarer than rare in journalism.

  12. Traitor Hator says:

    I wonder if the majority of the North Korean people are praying for Trump to do something. Not most of the N K government employees. They like it just how it is.

  13. Mr West says:

    You would think Bob would understand that Trump wants to be perceived as reckless. That he could start launching the US military at any moment.

    Maybe Bob? This is why people take him seriously and want to make a deal and stop playing games. Hell, everyone knew Obama was a pu$$y, and not able to make any decision that a focus group di not authorize. Obama not only paid his enemies, but was willing to get on his knees anytime.

    C’mon Bob, grow up.
