Funny because Trump denied this when it came out in Woodward’s book. I guess we can assume the rest is true also?
US President Donald Trump has denied assertions by prominent journalist Bob Woodward in his new book that he ordered the assassination of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Mr Trump said the idea was "never even discussed" with defence officials.
Defence Secretary James Mattis has also denied words attributed to him in Woodward's book.
The book Fear: Trump in the White House depicts a chaotic administration in a "nervous breakdown of executive power".
Mr Trump has already condemned the new work as a "con on the public".
In the book, senior aides are quoted as saying they hid sensitive documents to prevent Mr Trump signing them and as calling him an "idiot" and a "liar".
