Controversial Book on Trump Released

Miércoles, 17 Ene, 2018

I never spoke to him for book. I absolutely spoke to the president.

Obscurity is a threat to Wolff no longer. Wolff characterizes Trump as uninformed and at times erratic since he became president. Sanders disputes that, pointing to public photos that show the golf enthusiasts had hit the links over the years.

In another of the book's pointed moments, Wolff wrote that, during the campaign, Nunberg attempted to teach then-candidate Trump about the Constitution, something the former aide said the businessman and media personality didn't understand and didn't want to learn about.

In the skit, we see what looks like Trump reminiscing over photographs of the two of them as All By Myself by Eric Carmen plays in the background.

Margaret Brennan, CBS News: "Sarah, can you clarify?" As he explains on the first page of "The Art of the Deal", he liked to let the day come to him - no planned meetings, no set agendas. "He is accustomed to angering the Manhattan power elite, not the leader of the free world". What was he here for?

And that, whether you like Trump or hate him, is not the hallmark of a three-dimensional chess-playing super genius.

Even more savagely, on Thursday afternoon Trump reportedly got on the phone with GOP donor Rebekah Mercer, daughter of hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer, and requested that she publicly cut all ties with Bannon, whom the family had once fully supported. Point of fact. Reagan developed signs of Alzheimer's while still in office.

"I think the president of the United States has shown he's very very capable; very, very talented", conservative commentator Ed Martin tells Weekend Edition. "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".

Trump repeatedly has attacked Wolff's credibility, and did so again in a tweet Friday night. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom the President once called "beleaguered", is.

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.

Copies of the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" by author Michael Wolff are seen at a local book store in Washington, DC, US January 5, 2018. "I spoke to him after the inauguration, yes".

Mr Trump claims the book was full of "lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist" and has started to call Bannon "Sloppy Steve". "This is a man who is unfit on every level to be president".

Mr Wolff was also revealed to have taped many of his conversations, including those with Steve Bannon, which form much of the basis of the book. Reports this week also revealed that a group of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle were briefed by Yale psychiatrist Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the president's fitness for office. Wolff writes, "nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade".
