After hours of surprising silence, the White House on Tuesday responded to bombshells revealed in a yet-to-be-released book by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bob Woodward.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained about Woodward interviewing former Trump staffers for the book, titled Fear.

"This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the President look bad," Sanders said in a statement.

Sanders claimed, "President Trump has broken through the bureaucratic process to deliver unprecedented successes for the American people."

The government-issued statement also claimed that "no one can beat him in 2020 -- not even close."

White House chief of staff John Kelly also denied the veracity of Woodward's book.

"The idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true," Kelly argued.
