"Not only is he helping me sell books but he's helping me prove the point of the book".
Bannon had earlier participated in an interview with Vanity Fair in which he was highly critical of Kushner, laying blame on him for the Russia investigation. His lawyers have gone so far as to send a cease-and-desist letter to Wolff and his publisher seeking to prevent its publication.
Wolff told NBC that he stood by his reporting and had talked to the president for the book.
According to the book, former staffer Steve Bannon told colleagues at Breitbart News "He's not going to make it".
Wolff's book - which went on sale Friday ahead of its planned January 9 release - has rocked and dominated the political and media worlds from Washington D.C.to New York. In response to that, they actually decided to go ahead and release it early, so it came out this week.
Former White House adviser Steve Bannon's public spat with Donald Trump is escalating, suggesting a permanent split between the US president and the strategist who helped put him in the Oval Office. "The White House waited 5 hours to issue its statement, so Bannon's team did have enough time to respond". Some journalists have also expressed skepticism and pointed to past criticism of Mr. Wolff's work.
Holy shit this is so bad. "What was Michael Wolff doing in the White House in the first place?"
"In what way?" the host responded. I have recordings, I have notes.
"I like when he comes up with a nickname and then acts like it was a thing", Kimmel joked.
Wolff has a controversial track record. Do not cut, copy or lift any content from this website without our consent.
He also spoke of how White House aides see the president as a "child" who needs "immediate gratification".
He says all those around Mr Trump question his intelligence and fitness for office.
On the "Today" show, he said, "I said what was necessary to get the story".
The Mercers still could remain influential figures in politics - and a threat to establishment congressional candidates in November's midterm elections - even as Bannon is sidelined.
