Identifying "mental stability" and being "really smart" as his two greatest assets, Trump in a series of tweets said that winning the presidential election on his first attempt qualifies him as a "genius". Rebekah Mercer, the billionaire GOP donor and Breitbart co-owner, issued a statement Thursday distancing her family from Bannon.
"This is bigger than I ever dreamed of", Trump told former Fox News executive, and longtime friend, Roger Ailes a week before the election. And without that money, Bannon's ambitions to challenge the Republican establishment with outsider candidates in 2018 will not be realized. He then adopted Trump's voice for a hypothetical scolding: "Steve, you promised you'd never tell anyone about those terrible things you saw me not do!"
President Trump said Wolff was not granted access and never spoke to him about the book, accusing the author of making up stories.

BBC presenter Razia Iqbal slammed Trump and said: "But he's only had success with one piece of legislation..." "And look, as entertaining as it is, I don't know how much of this book is accurate and how much is exaggerated". So let me say very forthrightly: This book is not about Steve Bannon. "Nothing found.

The reaction was less frenetic in New York, Trump's old home base. This is the world that Donald Trump promotes: 'millions of illegal votes'; Barack Obama, born in Kenya; Ted Cruz's dad killed J.F.K.; Suggesting Joe Scarborough killed an intern.
Sign posted at the door for Kramerbooks & Afterwords Cafe indicating that the book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" is sold out at the bookstore located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood in Washington. "I've had no reason to question his mental fitness", said Tillerson, whose office was last year forced to deny reports that he had referred to Trump as a "moron" after a national security meeting. "He's like a pinball, just shooting off the sides", Wolff added. "Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist", Trump tweeted on Thursday.
Bannon's political standing was already weakened after he went all-out last month to support failed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore despite multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore.

New detail is also provided on his previously revealed to fear of germs. "I guess the country isn't as divided as it seems", Noah quipped. He has taken housekeeping staff to task over cleaning his room: "If my shirt is on the floor, it's because I want it on the floor".
