Mr Wolff's new book, which has shot to the top of the bestseller list on Amazon after being released four days early, has clearly riled the President and he used a rare news conference during a retreat with Republican leadership to reinforce what he sees as a stellar list of life achievements.

Trump has been far more likely to jet off to his own properties on the weekends - Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey - than to visit Camp David, which was converted into a presidential retreat by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940s. Trump said Bannon had "lost his mind".

Donald Trump met with Republican congressional leaders on Saturday to discuss the agenda for 2018. The president's lawyer sent a cease-and-desist letter to the book's publisher and is threatening to sue Wolff.

The president is inviting a bipartisan group of senators to sit down this week to discuss a negotiated deal.

He said he wants a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which protects 700,000 young immigrants from deportation but expires on March 5.
