Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury appears to reinforce many of the concerns about Donald Trump’s ability to hold the highest office in the United States. The article on Australia’s ABC news website reports that the book paints a very withering view of the credibility of the President. However, it also says that many are questioning whether the book paints a fair picture of just how dysfunctional the administration is. I suspect that whilst there have been many issues that you would have thought accelerated the hope/fear that Donald Trump is forced to stand down as President, this book could act as a catalyst to embolden those that matter to push for his removal from office.

Meanwhile Michael Wolff is not retracting any of his allegations. The UK Guardian newspaper reports that in Mr Wolff is not showing any sign of backing down and that he very much stands by comments from his book such as “They say he’s a moron, an idiot. Actually, there’s a competition to sort of get to the bottom line here of who is this man is. Let’s remember, this man does not read, does not listen, so he’s like a pinball just shooting off the sides.”
President Trump’s challenges have been mounting with the ongoing verbal spat with Steve Bannon his former Chief of Staff. Steve Bannon is said to have contributed to the book, but he also been in a onging personal battle with the President. A legal letter of cease and desist has been issued by the Donald Trump’s lawyers to Steve Bannon alleging that he is in breach of his non-disclosure agreement. However, as the Time magazine points out in a recent article under the first amendment a former government employee is protected from such charges.
