Donald Trump has denied claims senior staff members stole sensitive documents from his desk - to keep him from making impulsive decisions.
The allegation is in a new book by Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward.
In it, he says the President's chief-of-staff General John Kelly repeatedly referred to his boss as an "idiot."
However, in typical fashion, the 45th President of the United States took to Twitter to share his unhappiness at the allegations.
The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?

The already discredited Woodward book, so many lies and phony sources, has me calling Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded” and “a dumb southerner.” I said NEITHER, never used those terms on anyone, including Jeff, and being a southerner is a GREAT thing. He made this up to divide!

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the book "nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees."
