Breitbart Exiles Former Chairman at Request of Top Donor — STEVE BANNON OUT

It was Bannon - Trump's former senior strategist, fired by the US president in August - who helped give Wolff access to the White House to carry out research for his bombshell book.

But since Bannon's quotes in the Wolff book emerged, the White House began sending Republicans and conservative figures a clear message: Trump or Bannon.

Author Michael Wolff wrote that Bannon called a 2016 meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer "treasonous" and called daughter Ivanka Trump "dumb as a brick".

Bannon had an on-again, off-again relationship with Trump - at odds over the Alabama GOP Senate primary when Trump backed Luther Strange, back on when both supported Roy Moore.

"And then he named a couple of other authors, who he knew, who he said, 'Oh, yeah, they'd like to do this too.' And I said, but, you know, is it, is it okay?"

Tur tried to pin Wolff down on the book's inaccuracies but was unsuccessful.

In response to the report, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, 'The time in the morning is a mix of residence time and Oval Office time but he always has calls with staff, Hill members, cabinet members and foreign leaders during this time.

Released Friday, the book has the liberal media and Trump haters in a tizzy, of course.

Pompeo added that Trump was "completely fit", saying it was "ludicrous" to suggest otherwise.

That picture, said Miller, "is so contrary to reality, to the experience of those who work with him".

President Trump said that Mr Bannon, who left the White House after a matter of months, had also "lost his mind".

He was responding to a question on the statement by Bannon a day earlier in which he had apologised for his critical remarks in the book 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' by Michael Wolff. It details the succession procedure should the president die, resign or have an "inability to discharge the powers and duties" of the office. "This is the antithesis of an actionable libel claim".

"I was certainly not brought in to be the court chronicler".

Watch the clip above, via PBS. Trump has tweeted that he is, "like, really smart" and even "a very stable genius". And his longtime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer, abandoned Bannon too. Jackson had also conducted the medical tests of former US president Barack Obama. That broke a record set in 1872. Yet, hours after WikiLeaks tweeted the link, "Fire and Fury" remained No. 1 on Amazon's lists of hardcover and ebook bestsellers.
