President Trump on Wednesday night said Washington Post editor Bob Woodward pens books that are “constant hit jobs.”

Trump made the remarks in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity while discussing the much-talked-about contents of Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” detailing the president’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“He called. I didn’t participate in his last one and he does hit jobs on everybody. He even did it on Obama,” Trump said.

“But constant hit jobs. On Bush, I guess they did three books. They were all terrible,” the president added.

The president on Wednesday night said he’s unsure if Woodward’s upcoming tome “is good or bad,” but predicted he “almost definitely won’t read, because I don’t have time to read it.”

“But I gave it a little bit of a shot,” Trump said, of cooperating with Woodward this time around.

“Rage,” sparked headlines Wednesday after excerpts of on-the-record interviews with Trump were released showing the president downplaying the coronavirus.

“To be honest with you, I wanted to always play it down, I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create panic,” the president said in one recorded conversation with Woodward in March.

The president at a Wednesday White House briefing defended his decision to downplay the severity of the coronavirus, saying that the ensuing panic would have only exacerbated the oncoming pandemic.
