Trump’s row with Bannon, and 11 explosive claims from a new book

A forthcoming new book tells all, including how “Trump used to boast that sleeping with his friends’ wives made ‘life worth living'”:

Donald Trump was “befuddled” by his election win, did not enjoy his inauguration and was scared of the White House, according to a new book.

Journalist Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House also purports to lift the lid on Ivanka Trump’s secret presidential ambitions.

The book details Mr Trump’s regard for media titan Rupert Murdoch, though the admiration was apparently not mutual.

The White House said the book was full of “false and misleading accounts”.

Michael Wolff says his work is based on more than 200 interviews and that he took up “something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing” following the president’s inauguration for a close-up insight into the fledgling administration.

Here are 11 of the book’s explosive revelations.
