"Libel laws are very weak in this country", Trump said. He told BBC Radio in an interview broadcast on Saturday that his book is creating "the perception and the understanding that will finally end. this presidency".

"If he was unfit, he probably wouldn't be sitting there and wouldn't have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen", she said, calling him "an incredibly strong and good leader". 'I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!'

Trump defense of his mental fitness in a series of tweets was a singular episode in a presidency rife with moments unlike any that have come before in that office.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told reporters at Camp David that he had not been aware of Trump's morning tweets.

Trump said he had gone from being a successful businessman to TV star to president of the US.

Bannon, one time thought to be a mobilizing force within the Trump White House, was quickly condemned earlier this week after it became apparent that he trashed the commander-in-chief to the book's author. "You wouldn't have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes to your head".

Reagan died in 2004, at age 93, from pneumonia complicated by the Alzheimer's disease that had progressively clouded his mind. I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breech for this president's efforts to make America great again.

Wolff's book has proved to be another shock to the system for Trump and his top aides, coming just as he starts his second year in office.

Journalist Michael Wolff's bombshell new Fire and Fury explained how Donald Trump, his campaign, and even his wife, did not expect to win the 2016 presidential election.

"The one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common - they all say he is like a child", Wolff said.

"This man does not read, does not listen".

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday defended Trump administration staffers on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos". Wolff wrote that during a trip to Mar-a-Lago, Trump failed to recognize old friends, according to an excerpt in the Hollywood Reporter.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders this week called such suggestions "disgraceful and laughable".
