Book on Trump sells out quickly at Victoria shops

Book on Trump sells out quickly at Victoria shops

The president blamed any access that Wolff did have to the White House on Trump's former chief strategist, Stephen Bannon.

A day after the release of Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - which has stirred controversy by portraying President Donald Trump as unfit for office - some Southern California bookstores are scrambling to stock their shelves with copies of the explosive book.

And in the book, Mr Bannon is quoted as saying a meeting between Mr Trump's son, Don Jr, and a group of Russians was "unpatriotic" and "treasonous".

"Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it was certainly not off the record", he said on NBC's "Today" program.

Professor Michael Wesley, Dean of the Australian National University's College of Asia and the Pacific, said he had not yet read the instant best-seller, replete with tales of dysfunction from inside the White House, but "from what I have read in terms of excerpts ... Ran for president one time and won". "I'd like to associate myself with what the president had to say about Steve Bannon yesterday", he said mischievously on Thursday. "I don't talk to him".

"Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

"I was actually quite surprised that even stores in Washington, D.C., didn't have huge numbers of the book on order", Walker said.


In a crackdown on leaks, the Trump administration also announced on Thursday that staff and guests at the White House will not be able to use their personal mobile phones from next week.

Asked to clarify what he meant when he wrote that Trump's entire circle questioned his fitness for office, Wolff said, "100 percent of the people around him".

He added: "Legal action is imminent". Mr. Trump also wants to address the problem of drug "pouring into this country and how to stop it".

On Wednesday, the President accused his former ally of "spending his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he really was".

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".

U.S. President Donald Trump's attempt to block the book's publication, his Twitter attacks against Wolff, and the publisher's decision to move up the release date to Friday only stoked reader interest. "I thought he would be, frankly", Kelly said. "But there is nothing in the US Constitution or on the law books that says the President has to have the kind of conventional empathy, magnanimity and grace that we have come to expect of presidents in the twentieth century [Nixon excepted]".

"People will think, we feared the worst but actually it's been pretty good".
