With the USA midterm elections around the corner, public debate on President Donald Trump's political future is heating up.

The Vanity Fair excerpt says that Cohn felt Donald Trump didn't understand how federal debt works. It spiraled so thoroughly out of control, with Trump lashing out and making so many things up as he went, that his own lawyer told him there was no way he should actually testify, because he was incapable of not perjuring himself. According to Woodward's book, Trump thinks little of the decades-long alliance.
