THEY ARE AFFECTIONATE WITH EACH OTHER
The first-hand accounts of top Trump aids who spoke to Woodward reveal that the couple spends time together, and have dinner together frequently.
Woodward's sources claim that Melania and Donald Trump appear to genuinely like each other.
THE STORMY DANIELS AFFAIR
President Trump, 72, who was caught on tape boasting about groping women has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct.
The most serious challenge faced by the President is a lawsuit brought by Stormy Daniels, a pornography actress who is seeking to break a $130,000 non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2016.
The six-figure payout was meant to buy the actress' silence with regards to an affair she had had with the President.
THE WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS THE STORY IS FABRICATED
The White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders released a statement on behalf of the President denying the veracity of the information in Woodward’s book.
The Press Secretary describes Woodward's sources as "disgruntled employees" and their statements as false.
WOODWARD AND THE WATERGATE SCANDAL
In 1972 Woodward was working for The Washington Post and teamed up with fellow journalist Carl Bernstein.
It was the two men's investigation that brought to light the government's illegal surveillance of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., in the Watergate office building.
Their investigation led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon and was described as "maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time" by the legendary journalist Gene Roberts.
In a related story, much speculation was aroused when Melania Trump chose to spend her husband's 72nd birthday - on the 14th of June 2018 - 200 miles away in New York City and did not acknowledge the landmark event on social media.
