After Tuesday's inter-Korean talks, Trump said during a phone conversation with South Korean President Moon Jae-in that the United States was open to talks with North Korea "at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances", according to a White House statement. The Mercer family has invested $10 million in the site, the New Yorker magazine reported.

Bannon also predicted in the book that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, would "crack" Trump Jr. He also said it included defamatory statements and could be considered an "invasion of privacy". The publisher is trying its best to keep with the increasing demand while the people of America can not get enough of this highly controversial book. "Instead, the letter appears to be created to silence legitimate criticism".
Henry Holt declined to comment on Wednesday.
