Fire and Fury: Trump allies dismiss 'fantasy book'
January 7, 2018 3:06 pm

Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House paints a damaging portrait of the US president.

Donald Trump too has continued to fight back against the book.

President Reagan also faced questions over his mental health while in office, although some observers saw the comparison as unhelpful given he was later diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
