Summary "With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump's White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. [This book] is the most intimate portrait of a sitting president ever published during the president's first years in office. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One and the White House residence. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files and documents. Often with day-by-day details, dialogue and documentation, Fear tracks key foreign issues from North Korea, Afghanistan, Iran, the Middle East, NATO, China and Russia. It reports in depth on Trump's key domestic issues, particularly trade and tariff disputes, immigration, tax legislation, the Paris Climate Accord, and the racial violence in Charlottesville in 2017. Fear presents vivid details of the negotiations between Trump's attorneys and Robert Mueller, the special counsel in the Russia investigation, laying out for the first time the meeting-by-meeting discussions and strategies. It discloses how senior Trump White House officials joined together to steal draft orders from the president's Oval Office desk so he would not issue directives that would jeopardize critical intelligence operations. 'It was no less than an administrative coup d'état,' Woodward writes, 'a nervous breakdown of the executive power of the most powerful country in the world.'"--Dust jacket
