Wolff: "In every way comfortable" with Trump book

In a series of early morning tweets from Camp David, where he is hosting a meeting of senior Republican politicians, Trump tackled the growing commentary about his mental health head-on, describing himself as a "genius. and a very stable genius at that". "One hundred percent of the people around him" question Trump's fitness for office, Wolff continued.

".Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart".

And when Trump addressed reporters later, the Ivy League graduate was ready for the question.

Asked to rebut specific points, she said: "I'm not going to waste my time or the country's time going page by page and talking about a book that is complete fantasy and just full of tabloid gossip". "I was a very excellent student, came out and made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top businesspeople, went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success as you probably have heard, ran for president one time and won", he said.

President Donald Trump's lawyers are expanding their crusade against a new book that gives a behind-the-scenes account of the White House.

The book paints a derogatory portrait of the USA president, describing him as an undisciplined man-child who didn't actually want to win the White House.

The book also quotes Trump's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and other prominent advisers as questioning the president's competence. "Libel laws are very weak in this country".

"I don't know this man", Trump said of the author. Look at this guy's past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve! "That's why sloppy Steve is now looking for a job". A discussion that may have cost the president one of his top lawyers.

Signs point to Matt Patricia as Giants coach
From Patricia's perspective, the Giants should appeal in the sense that they have Eli Manning and a high first-round pick. When looking at the current situations in Detroit and NY , it seems like a no-brainer to pick the Lions.

Syria Confirms Major Israeli Attack on Damascus
The base could provide President Bashar al-Assad's forces with an important step towards reclaiming the Idlib province. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the auto bomb was detonated on Sunday evening.

He said his journey from "VERY successful businessman", to reality TV star to president on his first try "would qualify as not smart, but genius. and a very stable genius at that!"

Reagan, a Republican who was the USA president from 1981-1989, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1994 and died in 2004.

The legal threat and White House criticism seems to have only compelled more interest in the book. Reagan was almost eight months younger.

Michael Wolff's a provocateur who's said to love a brawl and once bemoaned the glare of the spotlight - and the bigger disappointment of watching it move on.

In a statement Thursday, billionaire conservative donor Rebekah Mercer said she has not spoken to Bannon in many months and that she continues to support Trump. I said good day, sir!

Wolff was generally granted access to the White House with a "blue badge" instead of a traditional press badge, giving him wide access to the West Wing, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal protocol.

Trump is to undergo the first physical examination of his presidency on January 12.

The tweets were another sign of Trump's frustration at what he views as unfair treatment by the news media of his presidency amid a federal investigation into whether he or his campaign aides colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential campaign, in which he defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton.
