TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE: As he walked to Marine One, President Trump paused to talk to reporters gathered on the frozen south lawn of the White House.

On Friday, Trump continued to tweet, saying that the book was part of a concentrated effort by the "Fake News Media (Mainstream)" to attack the presidency "at every new front imaginable".

"Suddenly everywhere people are going, 'oh my God, it's true, he has no clothes'".

The White House is pushing back against a book released Friday which is highly critical of the president.

Wilson said the book paints a picture of drama and chaos.

"This is a guy who made up a lot of stories to try to sell books", Ms Sanders said in an interview on Fox News Channel.

On Wednesday, excerpts blew open a feud between Trump and his former adviser Steve Bannon, who is quoted extensively and unflatteringly describing Trump, his family and advisers. The book also attributes statements to him denigrating the President.

"They all say he is like a child", he said. According to the president, he never even gave him a quote. "When he came in he was very very pleasant".

Asked whether concerns about his mental state were serious, Mrs May said: "No".

But while several analysts, as well as Trump allies, questioned the veracity of some of Mr Wolff's claims, the controversy has increased pressure on Mr Trump, particularly in relation to comments attributed to Bannon about the Russia investigation.

"I'm getting calls daily of people ordering a copy on our website and asking me to hold a copy of the books that will arrive on Tuesday", said Jennings. So far, Wolff has stood by his reporting.

From the early days of his campaign for president, Donald Trump stood out from the other candidates running due to his controversial style. Crooked Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGrassley blasts Democrats over unwillingness to probe Clinton GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI Top intel Dem: Trump Jr. refused to answer questions about Trump Tower discussions with father MORE also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames.

In another section of the book, Wolff writes that Nunberg struggled to explain the Constitution to Trump. "I've never had such conversation in the White House, outside of the White House, with Jared Kushner, with anybody else", Blair said in the interview.

So if Mr. Trump didn't want to be president, why did he collude with the Russians?
