Trump says he's 'like, really smart,' 'a very stable genius'

Trump says he's 'like, really smart,' 'a very stable genius'

The book also quotes Trump's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and other prominent advisers as questioning the president's competence. In a statement published by Axios website, he calls Donald Jr "a patriot and a good man" and says his support for the president is "unwavering".

"I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr. has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency", Bannon said. Professor Michael Wesley, Dean of the Australian National University's College of Asia and the Pacific, said he had not yet read the instant best-seller, replete with tales of dysfunction from inside the White House, but "from what I have read in terms of excerpts ..."

Michael Wolff said in an interview that his conclusion in "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" - Trump is not fit to do the job - is becoming a widespread view.

Trump, asked about a New York Times report that his aides had pressured Attorney General Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation, said: "Everything I've done has been 100 percent proper".

To Miller, "the portrayal of the president in the book is so contrary to reality, to the experience of those who work with him".

Wolff and his publisher should probably send the president a fruit basket to thank him for his contribution to the success of the book.

The book paints President Donald Trump and his administration in an unflattering light and has dominated headlines all week, while also stoking Trump's and his allies' ire.

Steve Bannon expresses regret over comments in controversial book on Donald Trump
Miller took jabs at CNN during the tense exchange, leading Tapper to abruptly cut off the interview . Tapper said that Miller was dodging his questions and performing for "an audience of one" - Trump.

He's bemoaning what he called the country's "very weak" libel laws and making the case that he's actually "really smart", as he put it, and indeed, a "very stable genius".

Meanwhile UK Prime Minister Theresa May has dismissed concerns about Mr Trump's mental health, saying she saw someone "who is committed to ensuring that he is taking decisions in the best interests of the United States". White supremacists use the term "globalist" as a euphemism for "Jewish" a the group targeted by Bannon includes former Goldman Sachs banker Gary Cohn who, like Kushner, is Jewish. Full details will come from the White House when the arrangements have been finalised.

As the president defended his tweets, which Twitter had already mocked in excess, #StableGenius trended to the top spot on Trump's favorite form of social media. "It's in his imagination", Trump said Saturday.

As Guy noted, Bannon made several colossal errors which predicated his downfall from Trump's so-called grace.

The CNN interview quickly grew heated.

Doctors, however, said Alzheimer's was not to blame, noting the disease was diagnosed years after he left office.
