Michael Wolff On Donald Trump Exposé: 'I Am Not A Hit Man'

Michael Wolff On Donald Trump Exposé: 'I Am Not A Hit Man'

Wolff shouted "no no no" as Robinson began to outline people who had refuted claims in the book, such as Tony Blair denying he had warned Trump about Britain spying on him.

What's more, the New York Times recounts how Trump blew up at his first major endorser - Jeff Sessions, his attorney general - and how former White House aides are cooperating with the Mueller investigation. Some bookstores sold out in under 10 minutes because everybody wanted to know what was in this bombshell book and I'm sure that was Michael Wolff's plan from the very beginning.

The author of a damning book on the Donald Trump presidency has defended his work despite the USA president's suggestion that it is "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

Wolff, 64, said on NBC's "Today". Other excerpts depicted Trump being angry over celebrity snubs at his inauguration, and that he eats fast food because he is afraid he might be poisoned.

On Thursday, Trump tried to distance himself from his former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, who is quoted throughout the book which is highly critical of the president.

In his prologue, Wolff writes, as Business Insider noted: "Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are boldly untrue".

Host Nick Robinson suggested one of Wolff's main sources, Trump's ex-aide Steve Bannon who left the White House in August, was not reliable. Instead, the publisher moved up the release four days to Friday due to "overwhelming demand".


The US President has threatened to sue, and has repeatedly criticised the book and its author on Twitter.

"The big picture here is of a White House that is chaotic, of a president whose impulses whipsaw the White House of a lot of backstabbing, front-stabbing", said John Dickerson, host of the CBS News program "Face the Nation".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders is continuing to slam an explosive new book about President Donald Trump's first year in office. I have recordings. I have notes.

Mr Trump's lawyers also sent a cease and desist letter to Mr Bannon, accusing him of breaking his employment agreement and defaming the President.

Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" portrays Trump as an undisciplined man-child who didn't want to win the White House.

Mr. Deason and Republican donor Dan Eberhart both say that the passing of the GOP tax bill made them less likely to support GOP primary challengers like Roy Moore, whom Mr. Bannon supported over the Republican incumbent in the recent Alabama special election, which Moore lost to a Democrat. "I am certainly and absolutely in every way comfortable with what I have reported", he added.
