Former White House aide pushes back on Woodward's book

Mr Mattis, Mr Kelly and other aides have vehemently denied make the disparaging statements attributed to them in the book.

Woodward explains: McMaster, he says, "understood the strategic importance of India, a sworn enemy of Pakistan".

The president's frustration grew when, soon after portions of Woodward's book were leaked, the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by a senior Trump official who wrote of a quiet "resistance" inside the Trump administration, working against some of the president's wishes.
