Trump's latest on Bannon: 'He called me a great man last night'

DC bookstore selling new book on Trump White House at midnight

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House was due out on Tuesday but Mr Wolff says it will now be available for purchase on Friday.

"When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said in a statement, adding, "Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was".

The self-appointed keeper of Trump's nationalist flame during the president's first six months in office, Bannon had soured on the president even before he was pushed out of the White House for feeding the perception that he was Trump's puppeteer.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders dismissed the book as a "trashy tabloid fiction" that she said was "filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House".

It cites former top aide Steve Bannon as describing a meeting with a group of Russians as "treasonous".

Though Trump favorite "Fox & Friends" brushed off the book as "so tabloid" and "salacious" Thursday morning, the White House and Trump himself attempted to deal with the fallout Wednesday.

Former White House adviser Steve Bannon's reported criticism of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 meeting with the Russians is "absolutely ridiculous", former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said today. "I don't talk to him, that's just a misnomer", Trump said.

In researching the book, Wolff said he had been able to take up "something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing" following the president's inauguration. "She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did", Grisham said in a statement.

"Bannon has no contingent, " former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Wednesday between media interviews to defend Trump.

Bannon helped Trump shape a populist, anti-establishment message and had been the president's link to his hard-line conservative base of support.

Bannon did not respond to ABC News' request for comment Wednesday.

Bannon has not released any statements addressing the controversy over his remarks but in a Wednesday night radio show praised the president as a "great man".

White House Senior Advisor to the President Jared Kushner exits the West Wing of the White House October 17, 2017 in Washington, DC. Much of Bannon's political clout, they argue, stemmed from the assumption that he was acting with the imprimatur of the president, even if Trump wasn't visibly in lockstep.

"Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency".

A day earlier, Trump unleashed a spectacular denunciation of Bannon, describing him as insane and irrelevant. "He obviously changed his tune pretty quick", Trump said in the Roosevelt Room Thursday.

"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", he said.
