Sacramento bookstores experience 'unprecedented' demand for Trump tell-all

Michael Wolff's book about the inner workings of the Trump White House has angered the President himself, who tweeted that it's "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist".

The book was released four days ahead of schedule due to an effort by lawyers for President Donald Trump to stop its publication.

Author Michael Wolff's sensational book on President Donald Trump's administration is the top seller online.

One of the biggest political stories this week was Michael Wolff's new book Fire and Fury where he spoke to people like Steve Bannon.

"I have to learn how he takes information in, processes it and makes decisions", Tillerson told CNN, whom tTrump has taken to referring as Fake News.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump had lambasted Wolff's book on Twitter.

While Trump said he never spoke to Wolff for the book, the author said he spoke to Trump both during the campaign and after the inauguration.

"He is not a typical president of the past, I think that's well recognised - that's also why the American people chose him", he said, insisting that he does not expect to be asked to resign in the coming year.

The book paints an unflattering portrait of Trump and features numerous associates - especially former adviser Steve Bannon - trash-talking the president. But the publisher, Henry Holt, moved up the release date from later this month to Friday amid the publicity, and hard copies were quickly sold out in the Washington area.

In a pair of tweets that followed a now days-long saga between Trump and Bannon, his former chief strategist, Trump took aim at Bannon's appearance.

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".

Trump friend and ally Chris Ruddy, CEO of the right-wing Newsmax website, disputed on CNN that characterization, calling it "so absurd, so ridiculous". Demand for the book has been insatiable since reports of its contents emerged Wednesday.

"The first time since the Kennedy White House that a presidential couple had maintained separate rooms", Wolff writes.

Wolff's book also claims President Trump eats McDonald's because he fears being poisoned.

"Let me put a marker in the sand here".

He added that his story "seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do his job". Wolff has confirmed he has audio recordings of some of those talks.
