President Trump took to Twitter to blast Wolff and assert that he never authorized access.

Paula Poundstone wistfully wished Donald Trump hated her book.

Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House hit shelves this week, broadcasting the author's highly critical view of Donald Trump's first year as U.S. president. It's all about him. they say he's a moron.

"I intend to be here for the whole year", he said.

On Thursday, Mr Gingrich echoed Mr Trump's charge that Mr Bannon had "lost his mind". "Those conflicts and that looseness with the truth, if not reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book".

"Sometimes I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them".

The initial dust-up involving Bannon followed Wednesday's publication of book excerpts in the Guardian newspaper and NY magazine.

Lengthy, private conversations are reported verbatim, as are difficult-to-ascertain details like what somebody was thinking or how the person felt.

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.

Mr Brokenshire said he had hoped to lead the "essential work with renewed intent" before his diagnosis. He said his decision to step down was the right thing to do.

Wolff said he spoke with Trump for a total of about three hours over the course of the campaign and after Trump's inauguration.

Claims contained in the book have been widely reported by the media in the United States and further afield. When pressed for examples of falsehoods, she cited the book's "ridiculous" claim that Trump didn't know who then-House Speaker John A. Boehner was.

Sanders also derided Wolff's contention in the book that Trump and his family had not wanted to win the election.

Other journalists have also urged caution.

"My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than, perhaps, anyone who has ever walked on Earth", Wolff said.

Mr Trump, in a series of morning tweets, said his Democratic critics and the USA news media were bringing up the "old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence" since they had not been able to bring him down in other ways.

Host Savannah Guthrie asked him: "You stand by everything in the book?" He added that he has recordings and notes, and remains "absolutely in every way comfortable with everything I've reported in this book".

"I'd like to associate myself with what the president had to say about Steve Bannon yesterday", he said mischievously on Thursday.
