Trump book will 'bring down' the President, claims author Michael Wolff

Revelations from Wolff's book, which documented the first nine months of President Trump's time in the White House, have dominated headlines since excerpts were published this week in the Guardian, GQ, and New York Magazine.

Journalist Michael Wolff's explosive new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, hit bookshelves on Friday despite the Trump administration trying its best to suppress the expose.

The details: The diplomats, who asked to speak on conditions of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, said the funding was frozen until the Trump administration finishes its review of US aid to the Palestinian Authority.

"Where do I send the box of chocolates?"

Wolff told the Today show that he spent about three hours with Trump during the campaign and after his inauguration.

Some journalists have also pointed out factual inaccuracies in the book. "This doesn't happen - has not happened from other presidents".

Wolff said he conducted over 200 interviews with key players within the Trump administration for the book released on Friday that is already selling fast.

Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book.

Wolff's publishing house, Henry Holt and Co., appears to believe the president has no case because it moved up the release date to today.

The impact: The Western diplomats said freezing or cutting of such a big part of the US funding would be catastrophic for the organization, would hamper its work and might lead to negative consequences for the Palestinian refugee camps in Gaza, the West Bank, Jordan and Lebanon. "My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who walked on Earth at this point". "I thought this was going to be an extraordinary story in whatever way it went".

On Thursday night, in a tweet, Trump said he authorized "zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book!" and added that he "never spoke to him for book". Wolff can also defend himself by bringing tapes and notes from his interviews into court to validate his facts.

". The first time since the Kennedy White House that a presidential couple had maintained separate rooms", Wolff writes. It certainly wasn't off the record.

Wolff told the media he was "in every way comfortable with everything I've reported in this book" and that he handled the writing like a journalistic assignment. "My window into Donald Trump is pretty significant".

"The two fundamental issues [in the book] were that Donald Trump doesn't read anything", said Wolff. Among other things, Bannon referred to a 2016 meeting between Donald Jr. and a Russian lawyer, which has become part of a special counsel probe into the Trump campaign's contacts with Russians during the election, as "treasonous".

But the author also seemed to reveal that he had used a bit of deception to gain the trust of the very aides who looked foolish or disingenuous in the book.

"I feel that that is not the case now", Wolff said.
