In his Friday interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham, President Trump let slip he's been talking to Bob Woodward for an upcoming book. But it was what he said about Woodward that caught my attention.

What he's saying: "I was interviewed by a very, very good writer, reporter," Trump told Ingraham. "I can say Bob Woodward. He said he's doing something and this time I said 'maybe I'll sit down.'"

Flashback: Before Woodward published his 2018 book on the Trump administration, titled "Fear," Trump expressed regret that he hadn't sat down with the legendary Washington Post reporter.

Woodward declined to comment.
