WASHINGTON -- Bob Woodward, the renowned journalist and author of "Rage," an inside look at U.S. President Donald Trump's handling of COVID-19, sat down with Nikkei to share insights gained from his 17 interviews with the president.

He characterized Trump's treatment of allies such as South Korea "insulting," while his almost "romantic" relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un did not deliver clear results as the president insisted.
