President Donald Trump on Wednesday continued his angry attacks on legendary reporter Bob Woodward -- and he suggested that he might take legal action against him.
"Isn’t it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost," the president wrote on Twitter. "Don’t know why Washington politicians don’t change libel laws?"

Woodward's new book, titled "Fear: Trump in the White House," is based on hundreds of interviews with current and former White House officials.
In all, it paints a devastating portrait of President Trump and his White House. According to leaked tidbits published by the Washington Post, Trump aides regularly conceal information from the president to stop him from making disastrous policy decisions.
Additionally, Woodward reports that Defense Secretary James Mattis believes the president has the policy understanding of a “fifth grader,” that chief of staff John Kelly regularly calls Trump an “idiot,” and that former Trump attorney John Dowd believes the president is a “f*cking liar.”
