The Trump Book ‘Fire and Fury Inside the Trump White House shipped out at least 250,000 copies today amidst threats of Legal action by Donald Trump’s Lawyer.The book had gotten so much pre-order request after excerpts of the book was released by American Media houses so much so it jumped over 40,000 spots on Amazon bestseller list.
This led to a series of responses to be given by the white house, as well as a press conference and tweets from President Donald Trump. The legal threat had been issued to both the author – Michael Wolff and his publisher Henry Holt and Co, warning them to cease publication and submit a copy of the book.
However, Henry Holt & Co. released a statement saying “Henry Holt confirms that we received a cease and desist letter from an attorney for President Trump. We see ‘Fire and Fury’ as an extraordinary contribution to our national discourse, and are proceeding with the publication of the book.”
Michael Wolff also on the release of the book tweeted yesterday
Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.

Wolff who claimed he had been watching from a West Wing couch and had interviewed the President a couple of times claimed that the president was not mentally fit to be ruling the country. However, President Trump refuted this claim in a tweet saying
I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!

Donald Trump had also previously had made a personal statement that anything one of the key sources (Bannon Steve, Former White House Chief Strategist) in the book was saying was fake as he had lost his mind. He said, “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency”. Trump said. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind”. He concluded.
