He also told NBC's 'Today' show that Mr Trump's staff "all say he is like a child". In it, Bannon is quoted as saying the 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr., other Trump associates, and a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower was "treasonous." .

Donald Trump's supporters have seen many a media storm over the past few years, and somehow their man always emerges (relatively) unscathed.

Journalist Wolff, no stranger to controversy, quotes several key Trump aides expressing doubt about Trump's ability to lead the world's largest economy and military hegemon.

The new fissure in an already fractious Republican Party cast doubt on Mr Bannon's hopes of fomenting a movement centred on "Trumpism without Trump".

"I like when he comes up with a nickname and then acts like it was a thing", Kimmel joked.

Margaret Brennan, CBS News: "Sarah, can you clarify?" For Trump, it's not about talent; it's about blind, unwavering loyalty and a willingness to be publicly berated if it helps elevate Trump's image. What was he here for?

Released Friday, the book paints a messy, unflattering portrait of the Trump family as told by people who work with him and for him. I think Steve Bannon has played a poor card. "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".

The tweet, since its conception some eight hours ago at time of writing, has received over 35,000 replies - a solid mix of agreement and disagreement with Trump's point - but who knew that Mark Hamill himself would take time out of his day to share his two cents.

Trump repeatedly has attacked Wolff's credibility, and did so again in a tweet Friday night. "They had a very short conversation, but he never interviewed the president about the book".

Trump went on. "I went from VERY successful businessman to top T.V. Star.to President of the United States (on my first try)".

The White House had been weighing the move as early as November, Bloomberg News reported, amid anger from Trump about leaks to the media within his administration.

The President has claimed he never spoke with Mr Wolff for his "phony book", tweeting on Thursday: "Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist". This is not the first public display of animosity between the two.

Wolff also describes that on the day of Trump's inauguration last year, the billionaire "was angry that A-level stars had snubbed the event", adding he was "visibly fighting with his wife, who seemed on the verge of tears".

The huge publicity generated by Mr Trump's reaction sent it straight to the top of the internet retailer Amazon's worldwide best-seller chart. Steven Bercu, CEO and Co-owner of BookPeople said more than 100 people have placed book reservations for the new shipment Monday.
