President Trump himself said it is “full of lies, misrepresentations, and sources that don’t exist,” while Wolff indicated that he has audio recordings and notes to back up his assertions. It’s likely that Trump supporters will further challenge the book, as the Republican National Committee already has pointed out past challenges to Wolff’s credibility.
The book characterizes Trump as unfit for office, unable to focus his attention on even scant policy details and, in the eyes of even those most loyal to him, having the mentality of a child.
