The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by New York author Michael Wolff, paints a picture of a chaotic administration and a president whom insiders describe as being like a child needing instant gratification.

Wolff said on the "Today Show" Friday that he "absolutely" spoke to the president. Wolff added that he had spoken to people who spoke to Trump on a daily, "sometimes minute by minute" basis.

The White House is pushing back hard against the book calling it complete fantasy.

Dhillon, according to the Times, "was convinced that if Mr. Comey was fired, the Trump presidency could be imperiled, because it would force the Justice Department to open an investigation into whether Mr. Trump was trying to derail the Russia investigation". Instead, he kept his attention fixed on a president whose opposition to his book has only heightened its profile. The goal is to plot out the GOP policy agenda for this year ahead.

"The story that I have told seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do his job", Wolff said. "Fire and Fury" also quotes former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon suggesting that the meeting Donald Trump Jr. took with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Politics and Prose customer Daniel Zhang, 22, said he and his housemate read a chapter online on Thursday night and he planned to read the book later on Friday. "No reason to waste the president of the United States' time". "I'm not going to waste my time or the country's time going page by page correcting [the book]". Then I said, the movement in the UK to leave the European Union and then he kind of said "oh yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm for that".

Trump called the book "untruthful" and "full of lies" in a series of tweets over the past few days. This is an incredibly strong and good leader. "So he's like a pinball, just shooting off the sides", Wolff said. Reagan was ultimately diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease six years after leaving office. Far from it. Majority of people in this country want Donald Trump investigated for the sexual assault allegations.

Asked about White House lawyers attempting to block publication, he replied: "Where do I send the box of chocolates?"

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went on Fox News on Friday morning to continue the White House's attempts to discredit Wolff.

Trump tweeted: "The Mercer Family recently dumped the leaker known as Sloppy Steve Bannon". In turn, the publisher responded by releasing the book a week early. But Bannon has not retracted his statements, leading to a dramatic rift with both Trump, and Bannon's financial backers. The book reached No. 1 on the Amazon best-seller list Wednesday. And the book won't be available for shipping until Jan. 10. Critics of this decision say the move greatly increased interest and sales of Wolff's book.
