Michael Wolff Talks About Donald Trump and Fire and Fury

Michael Wolff Talks About Donald Trump and Fire and Fury

Wolff said he relied on interviews with insiders and Trump himself to write the book.

"Every phone call I got on Friday and Saturday was regarding if I had copies of it", Cassidy said.

In Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, author Michael Wolff has questioned Trump's mental fitness, portraying him as child-like with a short attention span. Trump had often complained about United States libel laws on the 2016 campaign trail.

From a story in The New Yorker Magazine by Masha Gessen, a staff writer and a noted author herself, "Early tidbits, released ahead of the book itself, have, predictably, proved to be the tastiest morsels".

Can Trump sue for defamation and win?

The ripple effect of the Wolff book has been remarkable.

Fire and Fury, which takes its title from Trump's threat to unleash "fire and fury" after North Korea's missile and nuclear tests, sold 29,000 copies its first weekend after being published Friday. She was previously a reporter with the Brisbane Times and Domain.

White House aides also described Trump's behaviour as similar to that of a demanding child, Wolff said.

In the Trump presidency news cycle, where major worldwide incidents and provocations are often replaced within a day by a new incendiary tweet or outburst, that is no small feat.

Some tend to think that to Steve Bannon, it's all a big game, and eventually he will find his way back into President Trump's good graces. Trump is defending his intelligence and ability to lead with Tweets.

But Wolff told MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "it was not directed at Manafort, it was directed directly at Don. Jr". The 25th Amendment establishes procedures for replacing the President or Vice President in the event of death, removal, resignation or incapacitation.

Meanwhile, the publisher of "Fire and Fury" said any efforts to suppress the book are "flagrantly unconstitutional".

Fire and Fury, penned by veteran political writer Michael Wolff, arrived at the Waterstones store in Edinburgh's West End, after bumper online sales in America and online.

After U.S. president Donald Trump's personal attorney sent a cease-and-desist letter to Wolff's publisher, Henry Holt, the company moved the book's on-sale date to January 5, from its original date of January 9.

"Whatever President Trump might think, he has no power to override these constitutional protections". As expected, the president quickly dismissed the book, referring to it as "pure fiction" and nothing but "lies", while labeling Wolff a "loser".
