Donald Trump Struggles To Limit Free Speech As Wolff’s “Fire And Fury” Hits A Record Sale
After President Donald Trump has branded a new book Fire and Fury as a “fiction”, he hit out at “very weak” libel laws in the United States.

Trump said he would like to see tougher laws on speech added that if libel laws “were strong… you wouldn’t have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes into your head” while referring to Michael Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

“Libel laws are very weak in this country. If they were strong it would be very helpful,” Trump said.

It came amid of Trump’s tweet early Saturday which hit back at suggestions that he is mentally unfit for the presidency by calling himself “not smart, but genius….and a very stable genius at that!”.

Wolff’s new book has caused a storm of controversy and has left Trump facing questions about his mental state, suggesting that those close to Trump had questioned his capability of the presidency.

Later, Trump with his Republican leaders appeared in front of the media answering a question about why he saw the need to tweet about his mental state while they were so focused on policy issues.

“I went to the best colleges. I had a situation where I was a very excellent student — came out and made billions and billions of dollars, became one of the top business people. Went to television and for 10 years was a tremendous success, as you probably have heard”. Trump replied.

He also called Wolff a “fraud” and the book “a complete work of fiction”, saying that “he doesn’t know me at all”.

Wolff, who previously wrote a biography of media mogul Rupert Murdoch, said he stands by everything in “Fire and Fury” and has notes and recordings to back it up.

While the president said Wolff “doesn’t know me at all” and claimed that he had not been interviewed in the White House, the author said he spoke to Trump during the campaign and after the inauguration.

Wolff told NBC: “They all say he is like a child,” he added: “What they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification. It’s all about him.”

“This man does not read, does not listen. He’s like a pinball, just shooting off the sides,” Wolff added: “They say he’s a moron, an idiot.”
