Wolff's new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is full of insider accounts of Trump's White House, and Wolff's resulting access to the president has been described as "unprecedented".

"I absolutely spoke to the President, whether he realized it was an interview, I don't know... not off the record", Wolff said, adding "I spoke to people who spoke to the President on daily, sometimes minute by minute basis". And in Sacramento, local bookstores say they were inundated with calls from people asking for the book. The article continues by saying, "But Mr. Wolff has picked up as many foes as fans during his years as a slashing columnist - perhaps more, even - and critics have raised questions about the veracity of his reporting, saying that he has a history of being casual with his facts". He also said he never spoke with Wolff for the book, and turned down his request for an interview many times.

"Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book", tweeted Trump late yesterday US time. In a series of early morning tweets, Trump claimed that Democrats and the media, out to get him, were "taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence".

"That's the background to the perception and the understanding that will finally end. this presidency".

Trump has now taken to calling his former chief strategist "Sloppy Steve Bannon" in the wake of a disputed book about the Trump administration.

The president's lawyers warned Bannon that legal action is imminent, with a similar cease and desist letter to the book's publisher and author.

They're "desperate attempts" to attack Trump, she said.

The book claims that for "Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, the president was an 'idiot.' For Gary Cohn, he was 'dumb as shit.' For H.R. McMaster, he was a 'dope.' The list went on". The New York Times's White House correspondent Maggie Haberman told CNN that the author got some basic details wrong.

The new probe was prompted by Trump's repeated calls for another FBI probe into "Crooked Hillary", the source said. "I can see several places in the book that are wrong. Any smart person does this". "It's like a tabloid exposure, except that it's probably based on a great deal of truth", said Book Passage customer Philip Alex. He's going to be forced to fight them, say that they're lies, say that they're fake news.
