Kimmel asked of Trump.
Yet the sensational details in the new book and Trump's continued defense of his mental health have wrenched attention away from policy and news of US financial markets hitting all-time highs, bringing even more scrutiny over whether the US leader is fit for office.
Still, Wolff defended his latest book as factual on the "Today" show Friday morning. "It got so we couldn't answer the phone, it was ringing so much", he said. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. "Thank you, Mr. President".
Trump's legal team argued in a hearing last month that Zervos' suit should be thrown out or delayed until after his term on the grounds that a sitting president can't be sued in state court.
"Trump ended with: ".to President of the United States (on my first try).
The maneuver allowed him to avoid questions from reporters a day after excerpts from Michael Wolff's scathing account of Trump's first year in office were widely reported.
Trump says in the video that the tax-cut legislation is already delivering major economic gains. The president says various companies have announced bonuses or higher minimum wages for their employees as a result of the law.
"They thought - and there is a real question as to why they thought this - that they were gonna get a fair shake from Michael Wolff".
"Your publication of the false/baseless statements about Mr. Trump gives rise to, among other claims, defamation by libel, defamation by libel per se, false light invasion of privacy, tortious interference with contractual relations, and inducement of breach of contract", Trump's lawyers said in the letter to Wolff. But Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom the President once called "beleaguered", is not. "He wasn't known as Sloppy Steve Bannon; you named him that yesterday". "It's in his imagination". "He obviously changed his tune pretty quick".
The actual number of times Wolff was granted access to the West Wing isn't clear. It used to be inside of 30 minutes he'd repeat, word-for-word the same three stories.
Others agreed that the book is suspect. It paints a derogatory portrait of Trump.
But Trump says he has not spoken to Wolff. Trump has said the book is full of lies.
Instead, he kept his attention fixed on a president whose opposition to his book has only heightened its profile.
Well, well, well, turns out even Michael Wolff, author of the "Fire and Fury" book that has sparked such national discussion about the Donald Trump White House, admits that not everything he wrote is true.
