Veteran journalist Bob Woodward told NBC’s “Today” on Monday that President Donald Trump has seriously endangered the national security of the United States.

"I've never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on," said Woodward, the author of the bombshell book "Fear: Trump in the White House."

He explained that Trump also regularly ignores advice from experts.

"This has not been treated seriously enough," Woodward said. “Some of the things Trump did and does jeopardize the real national security. This country does some things in the intelligence world which are so important to protect the country they are astonishing. They are secret. They are called special access programs, and he jeopardizes them.”

“He jeopardizes things in the economy by doing things that experts — ‘99.9% of the people say don’t do tariffs,” he added. “It doesn’t work. He’s got it in his head, and when people challenge him, he will say, ‘I have had those ideas for 30 years, you’re wrong.'”
