Donald Trump Dismisses 'Fake Reporting' and Backs Gen. John Kelly

Quoting from the book, the Washington Post reports that Trump's aides even coined a term for the President's behaviour calling it "Defiance Disorder".

Kurtz is very favorable to Trump in general, often defending him from more critical voices in the media. It is scheduled to hit the bookstores on January 29.

Priebus looked as his telephone detonated with email and instant messages, as indicated by the portions.

Bannon regularly clashed with Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, who's also a senior White House aide, Kurtz wrote.

Trump had explanation behind concern.

Kurtz describes how former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was caught off guard and "nobody in the White House quite knew what to do" when last March Trump, without citing any evidence, accused Obama of wiretapping his phone in Trump Tower during the election. "You were right. I shouldn't have done that", he told aides, according to the book. Bannon further added "You love your dad. I get that. But you're just another staffer who doesn't know what you're doing".

The White House denied to the Washington Post that Trump took Bannon's side over his daughter's. For example, he credits White House counselor Kellyanne Conway as a voice of reason.

Kurtz also writes about the debate over crowd sizes during the inauguration.

Trump seemed to agree with Bannon's claim that Ivanka Trump was the source of a leak, Kurtz writes.

.

By Kurtz's telling, Trump's way to deal with supplanting Priebus as head of staff with John F. Kelly, who was then country security secretary, was additionally not precisely standard working methodology.

For example, Trump was reportedly "strongly advised" not to send then-press secretary Sean Spicer out in front of the cameras to argue with reporters about his inaugural crowd size. " 'You're huge, ' she said".

"Trump said that was fine, that Bannon should go ahead", Kurtz writes. In short, Kurtz's book describes the calamity that ensued as Trump constantly made decisions without seeking counsel, including an unexpected and baseless Twitter accusation that former President Barack Obama wiretapped his campaign. "I shouldn't have done that".

The bungalow business of scribblers chronicling life inside Trump's White House exists, to some degree, as a result of all around put spills. The West Wing still sometimes executes internal searches for leakers - and yet the disclosures to reporters and authors keep coming.

"The president himself leaked to reporters as well, his aides believed", writes Kurtz.
