Targeted: Bob Woodward
After missing an initial interview with Bob Woodward that he both denied and acknowledged being told about, Trump began to declare that a book written by Woodward about his presidency would be inaccurate and "bad" because he wasn't interviewed prior to the book being published. He bragged about his NATO dealings, and claimed that "no other president had done it" before him. He concluded that since he wasn't interviewed before the book the information wouldn't be reported "that way".
