Though your letter provides a basic summary of New York libel law, tellingly, it stops short of identifying a single statement in the book that is factually false or defamatory.

In the book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", Bannon labeled the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower, which Donald Trump Jr. attended, as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

"It's not my fault people can't tell the difference between a book about Trump and a book about the bombing of Germany", Hansen said.

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President". Bannon drew heavy fire from the president and from his allies for his highly critical comments in a new book about the Trump White House.

"If I left out anything it's probably stuff that was even more damning", Wolff said of the book, also adding: "I have no particular politics when it comes to Donald Trump". In his explanation, he blames his remarks on his time as a naval intelligence officer during the Cold War, when he was stationed on a destroyer hunting Soviet submarines.

Steve Bannon, Donald Trump's ex-chief strategist, has stepped down from the right-wing Breitbart News organisation where he built his reputation. "Then they call other people to say, 'Oh my God, this is what he said.' And then those people call other people. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".

A dossier about President Trump's former ties to Russia is back in the headlines.

Trump took the extraordinary step Saturday of using Twitter to defend his fitness for office, insisting he is "like, really smart" and, indeed, a "very stable genius". In an ordinary presidency, of course, saturation coverage of a book describing a White House mired in "chaos and dysfunction" would be a P.R. disaster.

It has been publicly denounced by the White House and Mr Trump's lawyer threatened legal action to block its release.

Kinokuniya store and merchandising director Kenny Chan says: "Anything and everything with Trump gets a lot of interest, and this has been all over the media. They all realize the importance of this book as a commercial success but they also recognize the huge importance of reading a book the government is trying to stop".

Bannon had an on-again, off-again relationship with Trump - at odds over the Alabama GOP Senate primary when Trump backed Luther Strange, back on when both supported Roy Moore.
