The reference angered the president, who last week lashed out at Bannon, saying he "lost his mind". "In other instances I have, through a consistency in the accounts and through sources I have come to trust, settled on a version of events I believe to be true".

But Wolff told MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "it was not directed at Manafort, it was directed directly at Don. Jr".

Trump lashed out at Bannon for comments made in Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", which questions the president's fitness for office. "Congratulations on the book, and congratulations on the president hating it".

In a letter to company employees Monday and shared with The Associated Press, Macmillan CEO John Sargent wrote "no American court" would go along with President Trump should he sue to have "Fire and Fury" withdrawn. And a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer was "treasonous".

"Everyone was saying 'Fire and Fury' left, right and centre", said the interim director of UofT's Munk School of Global Affairs. The author drives home his points about one of Donald Trump's problematic qualities-his practically non-existent attention span, by quoting former campaign aide, Sam Nunberg, When briefing the candidate on the Constitution, Nunberg told Wolff, that he got only as far as the Fourth Amendment "before (Trump's) his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head". In his explanation, he blames his remarks on his time as a naval intelligence officer during the Cold War, when he was stationed on a destroyer hunting Soviet submarines. The client and his family were panicking and running their own defense.

"Sometimes", he writes, "I have let the players offer their versions, in turn allowing the reader to judge them".

The White House on Monday rejected former adviser Steve Bannon's apology for taking multiple shots at President Donald Trump's son and campaign in the new bombshell "Fire and Fury" book.

Mr Bannon, who was previously Mr Trump's closest confidant, questioned his former boss' mental stability and claimed those close to the President described him as a "moron, an idiot".

Pence says Wolff's book

CNN has not independently verified all the assertions in Wolff's book. They wanted a disruptor to be sure, and Trump has been that. Kushner's support for firing Comey has been widely reported, but not Ivanka's.

In the book, Bannon also said that President Trump had "lost his stuff".

The audio CD on Amazon was listed as shipping in one to three weeks.

"Steve is a valued part of our legacy, and we will always be grateful for his contributions, and what he has helped us to accomplish", Mr Solov said.

The answer could be some of both.

"And you have not heard the last from me", he said.

"Fox News will not be hiring Steve Bannon", a Fox spokesperson confirmed to The Hill.

At the center of the package is the idea that major projects would be the result of private-public partnerships - in which a private company shoulders a significant amount of the financial burden for the project in return for an ownership stake. Bannon imagined himself a sort of quasi-president and the actual President bristled.
