President Donald Trump on Wednesday accused author Bob Woodward of releasing a tell-all White House book in order to derail confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.


Trump was asked about Woodward's new book, “Fear: Trump in the White House," during a pool spray at the White House.

According to tweets from reporters who were in the room, Trump called Woodward's book a "work of fiction" and said that it was designed to interfere with Kavanaugh's confirmation.

"We run a strong White House, no doubt about it," the president was quoted as saying.
