Trump didn't want the book published.

A new bombshell book about Donald Trump details his first year in office and has received quite some backlash from the president and his campaign.

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff was released Friday and includes some explosive claims about the president, including his strange relationship with his wife, Melania, and how he is deteriorating mentally.

“In the end, what I witnessed, and what this book is about, is a group of people who have struggled, each in their own way, to come to terms with the meaning of working for Donald Trump,” Wolff wrote in the introductory.

Wolff said he spent three hours speaking with Donald Trump, but Mr. President denies ever speaking with him. But a piece of the book published in New York Magazine stated that the author and journalist had interviewed around 200 people “over a period of 18 months with the president, most members of his senior staff, and many people to whom they in turn spoke.”

Fire and Fury covers a wide range of topics about Trump’s presidency so far, including his policies, family, mental health, and campaign.

The book notes that Trump considered Melania his “trophy wife” and often wanted her approval though they didn't spend much time together. It even claims the president has been absent for much of his son Barron’s life.

“Donald Trump's marriage was perplexing to almost everybody around him - or it was, anyway, for those without private jets and many homes,” Wolff wrote. “He and Melania spent relatively little time together,” Wolff wrote. “They could go days at a time without contact, even when they were both in Trump Tower.

According to the book, Trump and the first lady have two separate bedrooms.

Wolff stated the idea that Trump never meant to win the presidential campaign. “Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary,” Wolff wrote.

The president is not a fan of reading, said Wolff, claiming an aide to Trump said: “for all practical purposes [Trump] is no more than semi-literate.”

President Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, has demanded the book be taken off the shelf, according to the Washington Post.

His lawyer wrote a letter addressed to Wolff and the president of the book’s publisher stating Trump is pursuing legal action against them for libel and more.

“You have breached the Agreement by, among other things, communicating with author Michael Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company, disclosing Confidential Information to Mr. Wolff, and making disparaging statements and in some cases outright defamatory statements to Mr. Wolff about Mr. Trump, his family members, and the Company,” the letter reads.

The main source for Wolff’s book, Steve Bannon, was fired.

“Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” Trump said in a statement. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that the book is "full of false and fake information" on Thursday. Wolff himself stated that some of the details in his book are “boldy untrue” and “in conflict with one another.” The author also said that he "settled on a version of events I believe to be true.”
