Bob Woodward is taking on the Trump administration. Simon & Schuster, Woodward’s publisher, announced that it plans to release his 19th book, titled “Fear: Trump in the White House,” on Sept. 11.
In previous administrations that he’s written about, Woodward has been a regular presence in the White House. The past three presidents — Obama, Bush and Bill Clinton — all participated in Woodward projects.
Unlike previous administrations, this White House had no process for making officials available to the legendary reporter.
Trump allies said they are bracing themselves for a book that will enrage the president — and that he will therefore promote, intentionally or not. Trump’s rage tweets, in the past, have helped to boost book sales.
