Washington D.C. [USA], Sep 13 (ANI): US President Donald Trump reportedly referred his Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah-al Sisi as a "killer", according to investigative Journalist Bob Woodward.

Woodward who recently released a book called, "Fear: Trump in the White House" claimed that Trump made the remarks after securing the release of an American-Egyptian national by the name Aya Hijazi, who was detained by Cairo for three years, Al Jazeera reported.

"Remember who I'm talking to. The guy's a fing killer. This guy's a fing killer! I'm getting it done. He'll make you sweat on the phone," Al Jazeera quoted an excerpt from Woodward's newly launched book.

In addition, Trump allegedly mocked the voice of the Egyptian President, saying, "Donald, I'm worried about this investigation. Are you going to be around? Suppose I need a favour, Donald?".

Woodward's book was released on Tuesday with published excerpts, leaks, and interviews from first-hand sources that describe Trump as dangerously erratic and uninformed.

However, on the eve of its release, Trump took to Twitter to call it a scam and stated that he was misquoted by the author.

"The Woodward book is a scam. I don't talk the way I am quoted. If I did I would not have been elected President. These quotes were made up. The author uses every trick in the book to demean and belittle. I wish the people could see the real facts - and our country is doing GREAT!", Trump wrote on Twitter. (ANI)
