Fire and Fury book will bring down Trump, says author Michael Wolff

Trump tweeted that he gave author Michael Wolff "zero access" to the White House for his book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which is set to be released on Friday.

An employee at a Sacramento Barnes and Noble said they had 12 copies of the book available Friday morning but sold out in 3 minutes.

President Trump, likely responding to discussion of his mental state raised in a new tell-all book, took to Twitter Saturday to brand himself a "very stable genius", saying his two greatest assets are mental stability and being smart. "Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames", he said. He thought it was wonderful what Trump was saying and he told me that he had talked with him twice, at least twice, on the phone.

The 71-year-old Republican president, who is approaching the first anniversary of his inauguration, has responded with fury to the claims in Wolff's book.

Trump has now taken to calling his former chief strategist "Sloppy Steve Bannon" in the wake of a disputed book about the Trump administration.

"Luckily, the president tweets a lot so he has kind of stirred up his own publicity for a book that's not positive in his liking", said shop manager Nick Buzanski.

The President's blast at Mr Wolff came at the end of a day in which Mr Trump's effort to stop the publication failed.

"That is the entire exchange - make of it what you will".

Donald Trump has hit back at claims over his mental health by insisting he is not only "stable", but also a "genius".

The White House, however, refused to respond to questions related to Trump's attorney.

The publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House has triggered a political firestorm in America, sparking renewed speculation about the President's future. "Steve Bannon is where he is because somebody gave him the money to run Breitbart." . "He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning and not our friends". Not since the Harry Potter series has one book caused such a flurry of activity - shooting to No. 1 on best-seller lists even before its actual release. "I never heard of any of these people until after the Trump campaign began".

The book infuriated Mr Trump in part by quoting Mr Bannon making derogatory comments about the President's children.
