In many ways, the Wolff book will actually help Trump

Michael Wolff, who was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump's first year, has said in promoting his book that Trump is unfit for the presidency.

The book paints President Donald Trump and his administration in an unflattering light and has dominated headlines all week, while also stoking Trump's and his allies' ire.

WASHINGTON-Former Trump senior strategist Stephen Bannon apologized Sunday for his role in a new book critical of the Trump administration as senior White House officials sharpened the administration's attack on it.

Donald Trump has defended a series of tweets in which he described himself as a "very stable genius" - by saying he was a "very excellent student". The book draws a derogatory portrait of the 45th president as an undisciplined man-child who didn't actually want to win the White House, and who spends his evenings eating cheeseburgers in bed, watching television and talking on the telephone to old friends.

Senior Trump administration officials have rallied around the United States president following the release of a book that raised doubts over his mental health.

Angry: President Trump has hit back at author Michael Wolff's book on the presidency the only way he knows how - with anger and Twitter. He has started referring to former ally Bannon as "Sloppy Steve", and on Saturday repeated his lament that the nation's libel laws are too weak.

Bannon's apology came after Trump went on a scorched-earth offensive against him in the wake of his comments.

Conservative New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote in October that some GOP senators at a lunch meeting with Trump that month "saw a president so repetitive and rambling, some thought he might be suffering from early Alzheimer's".

Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian "collusion" investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview. "Trump is going to get worse and will become uncontainable with the pressures of the presidency".

Its author told NBC's Meet the Press he spoke with the president directly several times, but said that Mr Trump might not have been aware they were interviews. Kelly said Trump did not seem angry and on Friday night had watched a new movie, "The Greatest Showman" about legendary circus promoter P.T. Barnum, with the lawmakers.

It wasn't long before the book created a public rift between Trump and Bannon, who's always been one of the president's most ardent supporters.

Miller's interview on CNN's "State of the Union" quickly grew heated, with Miller criticizing CNN's coverage and moderator Jake Tapper pressing Miller to answer his questions and accusing him of speaking to only one viewer: Trump.
