"People better wake up to what's going on", Woodward said on CBS's "Sunday Morning" while touting "Fear: Trump in the White House" as a detailed inside account that mirrors the op-ed's claims that a group of senior officials is working to save the nation and the world from Trump's rash decisions.
Vice President Mike Pence says he has "never" been part of a conversation about invoking the 25th Amendment to potentially remove President Trump from office - a subject mentioned in a recent op-ed by an anonymous administration official. "President Trump is doing for the people of this country".

Asked whether he had asked his staff about the op-ed, Pence said, "I don't have to ask them because I know them".
Some of the officials featured in the book's anecdotes about the president, including Defence Secretary Jim Mattis and White House chief of staff John Kelly, issued statements denying the comments attributed to them by Mr Woodward.
"We have a Constitution. The honourable thing to do here is for this individual to recognise that they are literally violating an oath", he said. "This person is a coward".
"It's a disgrace. I think the author ... and frankly The New York Times should be ashamed". "Cowards are like criminals, eventually they tell the wrong person".
Woodward: Trump Is 'Detached' From Reality, Jeopardizes National Security
Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and TV "hits" like no other pol has had to endure". According to the book, Trump told his national security aide that United States is losing in Afghanistan.
