Michael Wolff admits: Not everything in Trump book true

Ivanka Trump

Trump was responding to the claims made by author Michael Wolff in his new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

In multiple tweets this week, Trump has also ripped into Bannon, who is purported to be one of the Wolff's primary sources, after he was quoted criticising the president and members of his family in the book.

However trust President Donald Trump, the leader of the free world to not take such 'malicious' contents in the book likely. I work like every journalist works. Wolff wrote. "It was a process of suggesting, in throw-it-against-the-wall style, what the president might want, and hoping he might then think that he had thought of this himself".

In response, Mr Trump tweeted his complaints, saying the author had no White House access, calling the book "full of lies".

"He's helping me prove the point of the book", Wolff said on NBC's "Today", referring to Trump's attempts to shut it down.

Trump, in a Thursday night tweet, implored people to look at Wolff's past and referred to his former-adviser-turned-latest-target, Steve Bannon, as "Sloppy Steve".

The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", was available first thing Friday after the publisher moved up the release date amid the heightened attention.

The two men appeared to be publicly cordial until Wednesday, when a British newspaper published excerpts of a book by author Michael Wolff quoting Bannon at length. "They didn't have any lawyers", Bannon said, according to The Guardian. "He never interviewed the president about the book". "I can see several places in the book that are wrong".

Wolff says the book is mostly based on talks with people who have worked closely with the president.

Mr Wolff said of the President's actions: "Where do I send the box of chocolates?"

In his best-selling book "Burn Rate", for instance, about his time as an early Internet entrepreneur, Wolff "fabricated" a story about his father-in-law having open-heart surgery.

"This man does not read, does not listen". And what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification.

"The one description that everyone gave: They all say he is like a child", Wolf told the "Today" show.

"At Mar-a-Lago, just before the new year, Trump failed to recognize a succession of old friends".

"I will quote Steve Bannon", Wolff said.
