Woodward: Trump Would Call Me at Night; The Strangest Experience of My Life

‘I had to carry a tape recorder around in my pocket, have another one by the side of the bed’

EXCERPT:

WOODWARD: “Well, what -- I did a book called 'Fear' two years ago when it came out, he denounced it, and people who work for him went to him and said, 'You know, it’s actually all true', and Trump regretted not talking to me for 'Fear', and so, he agreed to do this, and it was one of the most — one of the strangest experiences of -- of my life, because he would call me at night, and I had to carry a tape recorder around in my pocket, have another one by the side of the bed, had to have one downstairs and at one point, he -- he called, and my wife, Elsa, answered the phone and Trump said, 'Is Bob there?' And she said, 'Who is this?' And he said, 'Donald Trump.' And she said, 'Oh, Mr. President.' And I had these conversations, taped them always with his knowledge.”
