Woodward said, “I'm not sure. Let's see what the story is,” while speaking about the idea of a second book in an interview with Axios.

He added that he believes the story with Trump following last week's release of the Mueller report is, "what Trump does as president," including whether he understands that "preventing World War III is Job 1." 


“It's a governing crisis. He doesn't know how to govern," Woodward said in the interview. "People who work with Trump say: You can't even organize your own government. How could you possibly organize a conspiracy with Russia? ... He doesn't even have a to-do list, as best I can tell."

Woodward published a book "Fear: Trump in the White House," last year. Administration officials and Trump himself have attacked the book's credibility

Trump called Woodward an "idiot" and said his book was "fiction."

Woodward told Axios he believed that there would need to be "propellant" evidence to force Trump out of the White House as some Democrats discuss impeachment following the Mueller report's release. 

"It happened with Nixon because of the tapes. You had a quality of evidence that does not exist in the Mueller report and the Trump case," he said. 

"What shocked the country about Nixon wasn't just the actions, but playing those tapes and hearing the language," he added.
