Trump reacted to claims made in Michael Wolff's new book "Fire and Fury", tweeting, "Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart". This, of course, is precisely why so many people are lining up at their local bookstore to purchase their very own copy.
Trump decried Bannon's participation in interviews for the book released on Friday by Michael Wolff.
Trump and his White House aides are using Bannon as a foil for the controversial book, as numerous stories feature negative information about the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner. "Too bad!", tweeted Trump. I never spoke to him for book. Wolff, who claims to have had unparalleled access to the White House over much of the past year, ultimately concluded that none of Trump's staff believe he is capable of functioning in his job as president, and his reporting in Fire and Fury details incompetence, incoherence, and indifference by Trump and members of his inner circle. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist. "Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it was certainly not off the record", he said on NBC's "Today" program.
"It's a disgrace that he can do something like this", Trump said of the book, which was released on Friday and contained damaging allegations about his presidency. The Guardian had reported that Bannon described a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".
