Donald was incapable of 'rising to the occasion' of the coronavirus pandemic, Bob Woodward has said - describing the president as 'dynamite' which is ready to detonate at any minute with catastrophic consequences.

Woodward, whose book Rage has painted a remarkably damning portrait of a president, spoke on Sunday night to 60 Minutes.

The veteran Watergate reporter, who has interviewed every currently living president during their time in the Oval Office, was asked why in this, his 20th book, he decided to break with his own tradition and pass judgement on the president.

Woodward wrote that is 'the wrong man for the job'.
