It depicts a chaotic White House, a president who was ill-prepared to win the office in 2016, and Trump aides who scorned his abilities.

I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book!

US President Donald Trump has rejected an author's accusations that he is mentally unfit for office, and says his track record shows he is "a very stable genius".

Bannon might quite reasonably assert that such an agreement can not bind him now as his derogatory references to Trump insiders in the Wolff book focused on the period of the Trump presidency rather than that of the Trump campaign.

Trump's lawyers sent Wolff and his publishers cease-and-desist letters, as they had to Bannon.

If Bannon is fired by Breitbart News, the move would have the support of the White House.

Travis Gettys is an editor for Raw Story.

Author Michael Wolff's tell-all was released today after being originally planned for release next week.

Trump, who sought to block publication of the book but was too late, tweeted Thursday that it was "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

The rate on Canada's two-year government bonds declined seven basis points to 1.73 per cent, dropping from a six-year high reached Tuesday.

In an interview with CNN, Mr Tillerson said: "I've never questioned his mental fitness".

"When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", responded Trump in a statement released by the White House.

He also hit back at claims that the book was untruthful.

Shortly after, he expanded, saying: "I am certainly and absolutely, in every way, comfortable with everything I've reported in this book".

The break between Trump and Bannon, who had bonded over their shared nationalist beliefs and anti-establishment populism, apparently caused further problems for Bannon.

Nevertheless, both Trump and Kushner presumably know that Trump seems to view the White House as an extension of the family business he ran for decades.

In other cases, the media columnist said, he did use his journalistic judgment and research to arrive at what he describes "a version of events I believe to be true".

Mr Wolff said many of those close to Mr Trump describe him as a "moron", an "idiot" and "like a child".

"On behalf of our clients, legal notice was issued today to Stephen K. Bannon, that his actions of communicating with author Michael Wolff regarding an upcoming book give rise to numerous legal claims including defamation by libel and slander, and breach of his written confidentiality and non-disparagement agreement with our clients", the letter read.
