US President Donald Trump dismissed journalist Bob Woodward's bombshell book as a “joke” on Monday, a day before readers get their first full look at his detailed account of a White House in disarray.


“Fear: Trump in the White House” hits US bookstores on Tuesday after a weeklong buildup, with published excerpts, leaks and interviews that portray Trump as dangerously erratic and uninformed.

Trump is quoted in the book brutally insulting members of his own Cabinet, referring to Attorney General Jeff Sessions as “mentally retarded” and former chief of staff Reince Priebus as “a little rat.”
