Mattis issued a statement, tweeted at least twice by Trump, saying, "The contemptuous words about the President attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

"If I did I would not have been elected president". "I don't even know why any of us are here". He added: "I would have been happy to correct them if Mr".
