Why has the 'Fire and Fury' book angered Trump so much?

Why has the 'Fire and Fury' book angered Trump so much?

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said Sunday he regretted not responding sooner to comments attributed to him that were critical of Donald Trump Jr.in an explosive new book on the White House.

"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda", Mr. Bannon said in the statement.

The president responded by saying Bannon had lost his mind, and the White House suggested the hard-right news site Breitbart News part ways with Bannon as its executive chairman.

When asked by a reporter why he felt compelled to tweet about his mental state, Trump said the messages were meant to refute accounts of his presidency - and allegedly dubious competence - in Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

After the comments were publicized, Bannon's biggest financial backer, Rebekah Mercer, followed the President's lead in distancing herself from Bannon. Bannon said Manafort was "a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate".

That's the real-world implications of a National Weather Service wind chill advisory , which will be in effect until 8 a.m. A chance of rain also is expected Monday night , but it should be mostly cloudy, with a low around 53.

Wolff and his publisher should probably send the president a fruit basket to thank him for his contribution to the success of the book.

Bannon did not specifically dispute the quotes, but said his criticism was meant for Manafort, who is being prosecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as part of a probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

President Donald Trump is a self-described "counterpuncher".

My comments about the meeting with Russian nationals came from my life experiences as a Naval officer stationed aboard a destroyer whose main mission was to hunt Soviet submarines to my time at the Pentagon during the Reagan years when our focus was the defeat of "the evil empire" and to making films about Reagan's war against the Soviets and Hillary Clinton's involvement in selling uranium to them. "He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job".
