The book quotes Bannon describing a Jun 2016 assembly during Trump Tower involving Donald Trump Jr., other Trump debate aides and Russians as “treasonous” and “unpatriotic.”

Since excerpts of a book initial seemed in New York repository and The Guardian ran a report earlier this week, a boss has been on a attack, observant Bannon has “lost his mind.”

On Thursday night, in a tweet, Trump pronounced he certified “zero entrance to White House (actually incited him down many times) for author of artificial book!” and combined that he “never spoke to him for book.” Trump went on: “Look during this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve [Bannon]!”

Appearing Friday morning on NBC’s Today, Wolff said, “The boss has attempted to put this — this book is about Steve Bannon. So let me contend really forthrightly, this book is not about Steve Bannon. This book is about Donald Trump.”

Wolff, however, pronounced he “absolutely spoke to a president. Whether he satisfied it was an talk or not, we don’t know, though it positively was not off a record.”

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders pronounced Wednesday that Trump spoke with Wolff usually once given holding bureau and that it was a brief phone conversation, not a sit-down interview.

Wolff told a Today show that he spent about 3 hours with Trump during a debate and after his inauguration. A outline of a stating routine posted by New York magazine says Wolff conducted some-more than 200 interviews overall, including with “most members of his comparison staff, and many people to whom they in spin spoke.”

As for questions about his credibility, including about his prior stating projects, Wolff said, “My credit is being questioned by a male who has reduction credit than maybe anyone who has ever walked on Earth during this point.”

The fallout does seem to have shop-worn Bannon’s credibility, with many former supporters, including Rebekah Mercer, a billionaire devotee of Bannon’s website Breitbart News. Mercer released a matter to The Washington Post on Thursday, saying, “My family and we have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have supposing no financial support to his domestic agenda, nor do we support his new actions and statements.” A growth that Trump forked to in a twitter on Friday.
