Trump threatened legal action, demanding that Holt withhold the book. The publisher moved up the release by four days.

Top New York Times White House reporter Maggie Haberman called the book "thin but readable".

"The president of the United States is a great man", Bannon said.

An employee at Beers Books in downtown Sacramento described the interest for a single book as "unprecedented".

On Thursday Rebekah Mercer issued a statement distancing her family from Bannon. Among the people he quoted was former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who called meetings involving the president's son Donald Jr, son-in law Jared Kushner and aide Paul Manafort with Russian elements "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

Sanders says staffers now see a side of Steve Bannon that is "very, very disappointing".

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.

Well, well, well, turns out even Michael Wolff, author of the "Fire and Fury" book that has sparked such national discussion about the Donald Trump White House, admits that not everything he wrote is true.

Money: Or more specifically, how legislators can agree on funding the federal government for the current fiscal year.

Mr. Wolff chose to sidestep broader questions about his credibility on "Today", claiming that he had written "millions" of words in his career and had never received a correction. "I will quote Steve Bannon: 'He's lost it, '" Wolff said during that interview.

Wolff told NBC's Today show the president is wrong.

One Twitter user likened the lines at Kramerbooks to "Harry Potter-like queues".

Anyone hoping to grab a physical copy of Michael Wolff's explosive new book on President Donald Trump will have to wait a while.

Wolff said that his sources told him Trump repeats stories over an increasingly short time period, and that he sometimes doesn't recognize longtime friends.

Wolff said Friday he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration. "When someone tells you that you can't publish something in a world with the First Amendment, I think saying, 'Really?"

Trump's attorney has demanded a halt to publication of the book or excerpts.

"In what way?" the host responded. "We've had requests for it already".

Speaking on US morning TV, Wolff, who spent time embedded in the White House and who spoke to a number of senior staff members said nobody in the West Wing took Trump seriously and all doubted his fitness for office.
