Donald Trump 'like a child', says Fire and Fury author

No matter, the author, Michael Wolff, is laughing all the way to the bank - his book on Trump, 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House', went on sale yesterday and is already in the top spot on Amazon's and others' lists of best-selling books.

Speaking on US television on Friday, she said that Wolff had never interviewed Trump despite having "repeatedly begged to see the president", describing him as "a guy who made up a lot of stories to try and sell books".

But Mr Trump has criticised the book as inaccurate and its author as a "loser" who had little access to the President and mostly relied on Steve Bannon, his former top aide and chief strategist.

In an interview with "Today" co-host Savannah Guthrie on Friday, Wolff said "100 percent of the people around [Trump]" have questioned the president's intelligence and fitness for office.

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. I work like every journalist works.

Attorneys for President Trump sent Wolff a cease and deceased letter Thursday, arguing that the author broke confidentiality agreements and made a number of baseless claims about the president.

Trump and the White House slammed Wolff over his book after excerpts of it were released this week, painting an unflattering view of his administration.

He laughed off a Trump tweet from Thursday night that said "Fire and Fury" was "full of lies".

Wolff's book also suggests that Trump did not expect to beat Hillary Clinton, and that he was alarmed when he drew ahead of her.

Mr Wolff said that White House staff described the president as childlike because "he has the need for immediate gratification".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is continuing to slam an explosive new book about President Donald Trump's first year in office. "They say he is a moron, an idiot", Wolff said. Actually, there's a competition to sort of get to the bottom line here of who this man is.

BBC presenter Razia Iqbal slammed Trump and said: "But he's only had success with one piece of legislation..."

The White House has ridiculed such claims saying Trump is a strong leader. "How he responds will determine his role".

He added: "I spoke to people who spoke to the President on a daily, sometimes minute-by-minute basis".

Justin Bethel, a manager of the Politics and Prose bookstore, said its 30 copies sold out quickly.

"At Mar-a-Lago, just before the new year, Trump failed to recognize a succession of old friends".

"Where do I send a box of chocolates?"
