Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House

With extraordinary access to the Trump White House, Michael Wolff tells the inside story of the most controversial presidency of our time.

The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous - and absolutely mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, bestselling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself.

In this explosive book, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office. Among the revelations:

- What President Trump's staff really thinks of him

- What inspired Trump to claim he was wire-tapped by President Obama

- Why FBI director James Comey was really fired

- Why chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner couldn't be in the same room

- Who is really directing the Trump administration's strategy in the wake of Bannon's firing

- What the secret to communicating with Trump is

- What the Trump administration has in common with the movie The Producers

Never before has a presidency so divided the American people. Brilliantly reported and astoundingly fresh, Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury shows us how and why Donald Trump has become the king of discord and disunion.

RATINGS & REVIEW

25/01/2018 2:49:43 PM - Jennifer
‘Inside the Trump White House’
Why did I read this book? Well, I heard that Donald Trump tried to stop its publication and threatened to sue the publisher for libel. That certainly got my attention. What, I wondered, could Michael Wolff have written that so concerned Donald Trump? I read the book over two days, and while some aspects of what’s written do not surprise me (sadly) other aspects really concerned me. Is it true, as Michael Wolff writes, that: ‘Donald Trump and his tiny band of campaign warriors were ready to lose with fire and fury. They were not ready to win .’ Making the transition from candidate to president would be, I think, difficult for anyone. But I guess it’s especially difficult for someone who has no direct experience of government and seems to have selected (at least initially) staff with limited experience. And I’m not going to touch on the wisdom of appointing family members as staff, or the revolving door of appointments. ‘The Trump campaign had built its central strategy around great rallies regularly attracting tens of thousands, a political phenomenon that the Democrats both failed to heed and saw as a sign of Trump’s limited appeal .’ But the Democrats were wrong. Donald Trump may have had limited appeal, but he mobilised it. He tapped into groups who feel disadvantaged and dissatisfied, people who were angry. Those people (and the vagaries of the US electoral system) delivered Donald Trump the presidency. But what has he achieved in the past twelve months? Reading through the book, I’m reminded of the tale of the emperor’s new clothes, of the danger of sycophants, of the perils of not taking advice: ‘You could tell him whatever you wanted, but he knew what he knew, and if what you said contradicted what he knew, he simply didn’t believe you .’ I was amazed by how Michael Wolff managed to get the access he needed to write this book: ‘While the Trump administration has made hostility to the press a virtual policy, it has also been more open to the media than any White House in recent memory. In the beginning, I sought a level of formal access to this White House, something of a fly-on-the-wall status. The president himself encouraged this idea.... there seemed no one person able to make this happen. Equally, there was no one to say “Go away.” Hence I became more a constant interloper than an invited guest.’ And so, reading through the scuttlebutt and the outrage, the various analyses of Donald Trump’s ability to be president, made me wonder as much about the judgement of the people providing the comments to Michael Wolff as it did about Donald Trump. Did they really expect him to change? I closed the book, wondering how (and when) the Trump presidency will end. Can it continue like this? What impact will this presidency have on the US in the long-term? Assuming, of course that there is a long-term. We are certainly living in interesting times. “They take everything I’ve ever said and exaggerate it,” said the president in his first week in the White House during a late-night call. “It’s all exaggerated. My exaggerations are exaggerated .” Jennifer Cameron-Smith
