Sources familiar with Woodard’s new book titled Rage told CNN that readers can expect explosive accounts of Trump’s thoughts and actions on the coronavirus pandemic, the economic collapse and the Black Lives Matter protests.

Legendary investigative journalist, Bob Woodard, will be releasing a new book about Donald Trump that details the president’s reaction to the coronavirus pandemic and his personal letters with North Korea leader Kim Jong-un

According to CNN, the famed Watergate journalist obtained ‘notes, emails, diaries, calendars and confidential documents’ including 25 personal letters between Trump and Jong-un.

In September 2018, Trump told a roaring West Virginia crowd that he and Jong-un were ‘in love’.

At the time, Trump said the North Korean leader had written him ‘beautiful letters’ while they negotiated the country’s nuclear disarmament.

‘I was being really tough and so was he. We went back and forth, then we fell in love,’ he said. ‘He wrote me beautiful letters. And they are great letters. We fell in love.’ 

Simon & Schuster will be publishing Rage and CNN has quoted representatives from the agency saying that in one letter ‘Kim describes the bond between the two leaders as out of a “fantasy film”.’ 

Rage will also reveal Trump’s opinions of past presidents and whether he thinks he will win re-election in November.

Jonathan Karp, CEO of Woodward’s publisher Simon & Schuster, also told the network that Rage ‘is the most important book Simon & Schuster will publish this year’. 

Karp said that ‘every voter should read it before November 3’.  

For Rage, Woodward conducted more than a dozen interviews with Trump at the White House, Mar-a-Lago and over the phone, sources told CNN. 

The title of the book also comes from an interview that Woodard did alongside Washington Post reporter Robert Costa in 2016 while on the campaign trail. 

‘I bring rage out,’ Trump said at the time. ‘I do bring rage out. I always have. I don’t know if that’s an asset or a liability, but whatever it is, I do.’ 

Rage will be released on September 15.
