The publisher declined to release sales figures, noting that it is a privately held company, but a spokesman told ABC News it has had "several trips back to press".

"Several things that are true and several that are not".

Wolff's book was released early Friday by Henry Holt, which announced a day earlier that it was pushing up the publication date due to demand. Bannon is quoted as saying: "He's not going to make it. He's lost his stuff".

"The president of the United States is a great man", Bannon said.

The book also questions the mental health of the president, hinting at possible alzheimers. As recently as October, Trump referred to Bannon as a friend and said they had a "very good relationship". He said he has been with the president, and said, "He is not psychologically unfit".

The White House has repeatedly denied collusion and labeled the Mueller probe a "witch hunt". More people fired, resigned or moved to another department than any other president in their first year in American history.

Trump said Wolff fabricated stories to sell his book, using "Sloppy Steve Bannon" along the way. "Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames".

Wolff says the book is mostly based on talks with people who have worked closely with the president.

"Mr. Dhillon, a veteran Justice Department lawyer before joining the Trump White House, assigned a junior lawyer to examine this issue".

In a series of tweets, Trump said "the Fake News Mainstream Media" are taking out "the old Ronald Reagan playbook" and questioning his fitness for office. Wolff, 64, said on NBC's "Today".

Wolff's claims concern various aspects of life at Trump's White House, including separate sleeping arrangements, his confidants, daily habits as well as the atmosphere during the presidential campaign and on election day. 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".

Wolff said Friday he had spoken to Trump since the inauguration.

This morning author Michael Wolff spoke out in an exclusive interview on the Today Show.

Trump's attorney has demanded a halt to publication of the book or excerpts.

President Trump has lashed out at former adviser Steve Bannon over quotes in the book that question the president's competence. Far from it. Majority of people in this country want Donald Trump investigated for the sexual assault allegations.

"Why? You've already done enough for him".
