'Fire and Fury' author defends his portrayal of Trump

8 January 2018

Michael Wolff, the author of "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" yesterday.  Wolff was granted unusually wide access to the White House at the behest of former Trump strategist Steve Bannon.

Wolff said the book was based on White House access, conversations with Trump and interviews with senior staffers, including Bannon. He said he had no particular political agenda while writing his book. He added that he wanted his work to provide readers a glimpse into the Trump administration.
