President Trump vows to rewrite US libel law

"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" author Michael Wolff appeared to have expressed regret that his book had led to a "difficult situation" for US President Donald Trump's former White House chief strategist, Steve Bannon.

The White House reportedly tried to take legal action against the book, titled Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House by Michael Wolff.

The book's popularity "foretells Trump's political demise", the article said. If this had happened at, say, Huffington Post back when Obama was president, conservatives would've fallen all over themselves to condemn such behavior, arguing that it proves that the Democrat-Media Complex is alive and well. He added in a tweet: "They should try winning an election".

Mr Trump called Kim a "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

But I don't think the dotard will be displaying the latest cover of Time featuring him in the Oval Office.

The president said his position on the border wall will "never change", but on DACA, we "want to see something". Gotten me wrong for two solid years. The correct question isn't "who can forget" but "who can remember Trump Revealed?".

His book alleges that Mr Trump failed to recognise close friends, and was prone to repeating comments.

"It's absolutely outrageous to make these types of accusations and it's simply untrue, and it is sad people are going, and making these desperate attempts to attack the president", Sanders said during an appearance on "Fox & Friends" last week. "He's like a pinball just shooting off the sides". But once in the White House, Bannon's role was less clear and the president chafed at claims that Bannon controlled his administration's agenda. "This is absolutely, literally, what I saw or what I heard", he said. "It was not off the record".

Legislators have until early March to find a compromise for the immigration program that allows undocumented children to stay in the United States, and Trump has said the bill needs to have "love". It won't work. Chief of Staff John Kelly put an end to it months ago, and the manifest shortcomings of Wolff's reporting undermine the narrative.

What else is in the book?

Baker: Massachusetts unlikely to impose Medicaid work requirement
The federal guidelines say the administration would consider work requirements for "able-bodied, working-age" Medicaid recipients. As of October 2017, almost 75m individuals were enrolled in Medicaid and the children's health insurance program (Chip).

Bannon, in the book, was also quoted saying investigators would crack Trump Jr. like an egg on national television. Bannon has agreed to an interview with the committee, which is investigating Russia's election meddling and links to the Trump campaign.

Whether it was due to confusion, spitefulness or serendipity, Hansen's book has been riding Wolff's coattails.

Will it actually hurt Trump?

But his interest in the book had less to do with the political controversy it ensued, and more to do with its title.

NPD Bookscan announced on Wednesday that the book, which is filled with freakish revelations about life in the Trump White House and has been challenged for its reliability, sold 29,000 copies last week, easily the top-selling book of the period.

That's the kind of message that can win.

Trump labelled Bannon as "sloppy Steve".

The poll was taken before Bannon was sacked from Breitbart.

"The people in the White House are like everybody else in the country".

On Friday, Mr Trump refused to answer questions about the book as he departed for Camp David from the White House.

Despite the storm over the book, the Trump administration has been pressing ahead with its agenda.
