Trump threatened legal action, demanding that Holt withhold the book.

"There's been no evidence whatsoever to prove what he said in this book is factually accurate".

On Friday, President Trump praised a major Republican donor family for distancing themselves from Bannon.

"I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius and a very stable genius at that!" he tweeted.

With the economy booming, unemployment at its lowest since 2000, lower taxes, and a restoration of America's posture around the world would anyone really buy into the Trump "mental health" narrative?

Rebekah Mercer and her father, billionaire hedge fund founder Robert Mercer, installed Bannon on Breitbart's company board in 2011 after investing $10 million in the media startup.

But some reporters pointed out inaccuracies. even if they don't challenge the substance of the book.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused Wolff on Friday of fabricating quotes for the book.

One woman waiting in line who came too late said she had been "glued to the internet" for days reading about the book.

"I especially enjoyed that Trump did not want this published", said one reviewer.

KEITH: Wolff disputes that, telling McEvers that from the campaign through the early months of the presidency, he spent about three hours with Trump and was essentially a fly on the wall in the West Wing. "These conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of the book". Stating he didn't authorize access to the White House to Wolff, the book was filled with lies and calling Bannon, 'Sloppy Steve'.

"I absolutely spoke to the president".

"I will tell you the one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common". Whether he realised it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it was certainly not off the record.

Trump responded immediately on Twitter bashing both the book's author Michael Wolff and former White House Strategist Steve Bannon.

GOP congressional candidate Michael Grimm denounced his former political ally Stephen Bannon on Friday in the wake of Bannon's controversial comments in a new book.

CNN has not independently confirmed all the assertions in "Fire and Fury" by author Michael Wolff, which portrays Trump allies questioning the President's mental fitness for office.

Trump wrote in his tweet, referring to the questions raised regarding the mental fitness of the former president, who disclosed in 1994 that he had Alzheimer's disease. "Too bad!" Trump said.

Wolff had earlier told the BBC that senior staff initially were open-minded to Trump's administration, believing they should respect the will of the American public.

Some US news outlets have questioned the validity of statements made in Wolf's book.
