Trump calls author of book on him 'a total loser'


Michael Wolff's new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House that is to be out on January 9 has created a buzz worldwide. This, of course, is precisely why so many people are lining up at their local bookstore to purchase their very own copy.

According to Wolff's book, Trump alleged he installed Mohammed bin Salman as Saudi Arabia's crown prince, and took credit for it.

Earlier on Saturday, Wolff said the revelations in his book were likely to bring an end to Trump's time in the White House.

Trump, in a Thursday night tweet, implored people to look at Wolff's past and referred to his former-adviser-turned-latest-target, Steve Bannon, as "Sloppy Steve".

The semiofficial Ilna news agency reported there were smaller protests in Neyshabour, Kashmar, Yazd, and Shahroud on December 28. The governor of Mashhad dismissed the protest in his city as an "illegal No to High Prices gathering" at first.

Wolff, however, asserted that he had spoken with the President while working on the book.

"Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book", Trump wrote.

"I absolutely spoke to the president. I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius. and a very stable genius at that!" Trump has decried the instant best-seller as "phony" and "full of lies".

The tweets come days after reports emerged that members of Congress - mostly Democrats - were briefed by Yale psychologist Dr Bandy X Lee on Trump's mental health last month. The Guardian had reported that Bannon described a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".
