Wolff's new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House is full of insider accounts of Trump's White House, and Wolff's resulting access to the president has been described as "unprecedented". Colbert joked. "I agree with Steve Bannon?"
Press secretary Sarah Sanders said at Thursday's press briefing that Wolff made "at least two dozen requests" for an interview with the president which were never granted. "He never interviewed the president about the book. Too bad!" the president tweeted Saturday.

Wolff said Friday he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration. "I'm still very active on the Middle East peace process, but I've got absolutely no desire for an official position". The publisher instead moved up the release date to Friday.
