Tillerson defends president as book casts doubt on Trump's mental health

Melania Trump

The author of a book that is highly critical of Donald Trump's first year as US president said his revelations were likely to bring an end to Trump's time in the White House.

But, as a result of this book coming out, according to a new report by Axios who spoke with members of the Trump administration, no fewer than six current aids to Donald Trump, high level staffers are planning their immediate exit because they are fearful about what they call the next stage of the Trump presidency and it all ties back to this book by Michael Wolff.

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart", Mr Trump said on Twitter.

"I didn't generally intend to buy it, but I heard that it pissed the president off, so I decided to buy it", she said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also dismissed the book, contending it "is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House".

Trump's attorney has sent a cease and desists letter to former White House Chief Strategist Bannon for making liable comments against the president and the first family.

"If they were strong it would be very helpful", he said, "you wouldn't have things like that happen where you can just say whatever comes into your head".

"The Fake News Media (Mainstream) and this phoney new book are hitting out at every new front imaginable", Trump wrote. But perhaps the most important to understand is that it lacks any sort of meta-narrative.

"So it becomes from day one, the crisis of the presidency: you can't tell him anything".

The book includes reporting that Trump never wanted to be president, quotes from some of Trump's advisers insulting the president's intelligence and saying that he frequently repeats himself in conversation. And Matt Drudge tweeted about new leaders and a "fresh future" for the news site.

Lawyers for Trump had called on the book's publisher, Henry Holt & Co, to halt the book's release, originally scheduled for Tuesday.

Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury": "Inside the Trump White House" is but the latest installment that is feeding the political ploy.

He added: "I spoke to people who spoke to the President on a daily, sometimes minute-by-minute basis". Murdoch raised objections about the biography back then. It's really a compilation of what I saw as the top Trump wins, the successes of the year. He is either a lousy judge of character, or he has a badly misplaced sense of priorities on what qualifies a person to serve inside the highest office in the land. Lee, confirming the December 5 and 6 meeting to CNN, said that the group was evenly mixed, with House and Senate lawmakers, and included at least one Republican - a senator, whom she would not name.

An employee at Beers Books in downtown Sacramento described the interest for a single book as "unprecedented".
