"Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" was released on January 5, and orders for the bestseller skyrocketed after the president blasted the book and author Michael Wolff on social media.

Trump, of course, prevailed in the election, and he landed on the cover of the November 22, 2016, issue of Time as "president-elect" and again in December of that year, when Time magazine declared him "president of the divided states of America" in naming him "Person of the Year".

Bannon was a key source in Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", and offered sharp criticism of the president and others, including his adult children. He notes that President Trump used the phrase "fire and fury" when he threatened North Korea previous year. "I consider it work", Trump said.

The book, which is based on Mr Wolff's time spent in the White House after the businessman's shock election past year, was due to be released at the end of the month, but publishers Little Brown brought the launch forward. The representation doesn't extend to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe or to Bannon's transition to government and his White House service, the person said.

Kayli Vandermeer has been fielding daily requests for the book that has thrown the White House into disarray and has continued to generate Twitter fits from the commander-in-chief.

"Participating in a book that can only be described as trashy tabloid fiction exposes their sad; desperate attempts at relevancy".

"Whatever President Trump might think, he has no power to override these constitutional protections". "She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did".

The news comes two days after Bannon stepped down from Breitbart, the far-right website he returned to over the summer as executive chairman after being ousted from the White House.

"When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind". I heard it had already sold more than a million copies. "I think Steve wrestled with that in very, very tough ways. Steve doesn't represent my base-he's only in it for himself".

Fire and Fury depicts a chaotic stream of advisors befuddled by the machinations of the White House and absent of any consistent legislative agenda. It is the only thing he does well. I've just written a book. Their feuds would often spill into the press, exacerbating tensions in the White House.

He has consistently stated that Fire and Fury is not a depiction of his own views of the White House, but the impressions of people closest to the President.

But Wolff told MSNBC's "Morning Joe": "it was not directed at Manafort, it was directed directly at Don. Jr".
