Fire and Fury summary: All the most explosive moments in new book from inside Trump’s White House

Michael Wolff’s explosive book from inside the workings of the Trump White House has finally become public, sending shockwaves around the world.

The book – which has already been criticised by both Trump himself as well as critics – contains a range of huge claims about the president and those who surround him.

 The events described come from eighteen months of conversations with Trump and those around him, some of whom talked dozens of times. The work started long before Trump even imagined himself in the White House, says Wolff, with a conversation at the candidate’s house in Beverly Hills – all conducted while he ate a pint of Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
In all, the book takes in more than 200 interviews. But more than that, Wolff claims to have taken up a “semipermanent seat on a couch in the West Wing”, becoming a fly-on-the-wall among the chaos of the White House.  …

  1. I did not read the book yet, but it seems that it also states that the Saudi ‘corruption’ crack down was also approved by Trump. The special cruel treatment of Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal seems to have been approved also by Trump, and all this due to the Prince’s tweet against Trump before he was elected as President.
