Trump calls author of book on him 'a total loser'

Trump calls author of book on him 'a total loser'

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.

Mr Wolff told BBC radio that his conclusion in the book - that Trump is not fit to do the job - was becoming a widespread view.

Earlier on Saturday, Wolff said the revelations in his book were likely to bring an end to Trump's time in the White House. Trump has decried the instant best-seller as "phony" and "full of lies". Wolff, who claims to have had unparalleled access to the White House over much of the previous year, ultimately concluded that none of Trump's staff believe he is capable of functioning in his job as president, and his reporting in Fire and Fury details incompetence, incoherence, and indifference by Trump and members of his inner circle. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by nearly everyone. "Too bad!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

"I think one of the interesting effects of the book so far is a very clear emperor-has-no-clothes effect", Wolff said. "Look at this guy's past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!" the President tweeted.

Sanders said many people interviewed by Wolff believed they were speaking off the record, yet their comments showed up in the book and were often wrong. Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don't know.

The book, which kicked off a political controversy, went on sale on Friday, its release pulled forward after published excerpts this week set off a political firestorm.

Donald Trump sicced his lawyers on Steve Bannon and author Michael Wolff with "cease and desist" threats.
