Trump Continues to Rage Against Wolff’s ‘Fake Book’: ‘Reagan Had the Same Problem’
President Donald Trump just cannot stop lashing out at the new Michael Wolff tell-all on his administration. This morning, Trump sent out yet another tweet about Fire and Fury, this time invoking a former president to make his case that the book is untruthful.
I’ve had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author. Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well. So will I!

The president has spent several days in a row slamming the book while simultaneously going to war with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who is credited with the most provocative remarks in Fire and Fury. He’s labeled Bannon “Sloppy Steve” and his lawyer sent cease-and-desist letters to both Bannon and Wolff in an attempt to stop the release of the book.
Those letters, however, did no good as the book’s release was actually moved up to Friday. During an impromptu presser yesterday, the president seemed to indicate that he won’t follow through with a lawsuit as he said the libel laws in the country are very weak.
