Bombshell book hits Trump where it hurts

Continued From Page 1
Mr Wolff has hit back against White House attacks, saying the president has no credibility and that “100% of the people around him” question his fitness for office.
He added that White House staff described the president as childlike because “he has the need for immediate gratification. It’s all about him… This man does not read, does not listen. He’s like a pinball just shooting off the sides”.
The book cites former top aide Steve Bannon as describing a meeting at Trump Tower in New York between a Russian lawyer and Trump election campaign officials, including Mr Trump’s son Donald Jr, as “treasonous”.
Both Mr Trump Jr and his father deny any collusion with Russians took place. It also portrays Mr Trump as being surprised at winning the presidency.
Mr Wolff said it was “extraordinary” that the president of the US would try to stop publication of his book, a move that “the CEO of a mid-sized company” would not attempt. Mr Trump said he had not given Mr Wolff access to the White House nor spoken to him for the book.
Mr Wolff responded: “What was I doing there if he didn’t want me to be there? I absolutely spoke to the president… It was not off the record.”He said he had spent three hours with Mr Trump in total, both during the election campaign and after the inauguration.
Asked if attempts to block the book’s publication, and the attendant publicity, had helped sales, Mr Wolff smiled and said: “Where do I send the box of chocolates?”
