Following a meeting with the emir of Kuwait, President Trump told reporters on Wednesday that Bob Woodward's upcoming book, "Fear," is "a work of fiction," saying "if you look back at Woodward's past, he had the same problem with other presidents. He likes to get publicity, sell some books."

Trump also said Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been "totally brilliant" in his Senate hearings thus far and that he's "making Social Security stronger." He added that they are in "very intense negotiations" with Canada to work out a "fair deal" regarding NAFTA and said the new trade deal with South Korea is "done," explaining he may sign it at the UN General Assembly in a couple weeks, per pool reports.
