“...Obama said, 'I welcome debate among my team, but I won't tolerate division.”
Bob Woodward, Obama's Wars

“The reality was that the United States in 2017 was tethered to the words and actions of an emotionally overwrought, mercurial and unpredictable leader.

Bob Woodward, Fear: Trump in the White House
