Donald Trump Doubles Down on 'Stable Genius' Tweet at Camp David

Donald Trump Doubles Down on 'Stable Genius' Tweet at Camp David

Hours before the statement came out, administration officials used appearances on the Sunday news shows to rally behind Trump and try to undermine Wolff's "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House" which portrays the 45th president as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office and whose competence is questioned by aides.

The statement later adds: "I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of (Trump's) presidency".

The book paints President Donald Trump and his administration in an unflattering light and has dominated headlines all week, while also stoking Trump's and his allies' ire.

Trump said he had gone from being a successful businessman to TV star to president of the US. "You wouldn't have things like that happen where you can say whatever comes to your head".

"I went to the best colleges for college", said Mr Trump, who holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

Bannon, as Wolff wrote, said Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner's attendance at a previous Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer was "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

"When he was sacked, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind", Trump said Wednesday.

White House officials and Trump's high-profile supporters have launched an effort to raise doubts about Wolff's credibility.

"I think we have wasted enough of my viewers' time", Mr Tapper said, ending the interview.

Donald Trump has defended a series of tweets in which he described himself as a "very stable genius" - by saying he was a "very excellent student".

Theresa Maywas asked about accusations in a new book that he is mentally unfit for office.

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

He added that his story "seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do his job".

Trump, in a series of morning posts on Twitter, said his Democratic critics and the United States news media were bringing up the "old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence" since they had not been able to bring him down in other ways.

Trump has repeatedly invoked Ronald Reagan, tweeting Sunday that the former president "had the same problem and handled it well".

Reagan died in 2004, aged 93, from pneumonia complicated by the Alzheimer's disease that had progressively clouded his mind. I have no particular politics when it comes to Donald Trump.
