President Donald Trump speaks as he meets with members of the US Coast Guard, who he invited to play golf, at Trump International Golf Club, Friday, December 29, 2017, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
One of Trump's attorneys, Charles Harder, sent a letter yesterday morning to Wolff and his publisher, Henry Holt and Co., demanding on behalf of his client that they "cease and desist from any further publication, release or dissemination" of the book.
According to the Guardian, Wolff wrote that Blair had shared a "juicy nugget of information" with Kushner during a secret meeting and that knowledge "churned and festered" in the president's mind. Writing in The Atlantic on Thursday, James Fallows, a former Carter administration official and prominent critic of Mr. Trump, called the book's details "unforgettable and potentially historic".
John and Ramona Cota, who were at Barnes and Noble looking for the book, said they had already spent "a couple hours" on the hunt.
"It's absolutely outrageous to make these types of accusations and it's simply untrue and it's sad that people are going and making these desperate attempts to attack the president", she said.
An employee at Beers Books in downtown Sacramento described the interest for a single book as "unprecedented".
"The phone's been ringing off the hook", said Jessica Sherman, manager of RK News, 5914 75th St. "There's so much talk about it - especially with it being about Trump". Actually, there's a competition to sort of get to the bottom line here of who this man is. On "Today", Wolff said the president's action boosted sales. This is an incredibly strong and good leader. So let me say very forthrightly: This book is not about Steve Bannon.
