Donald Trump did not want to be president. On election night, the tycoon millionaire lived horrified as the count progressed while Melania cried, and not for joy. This is one of the more surprising revelations that appear in the book. "Fire And Fury: Inside the White House of Trump" by Michael Wolff, portrays a president with serious intellectual limitations and difficulties in understanding the dimension of his position. A report by the Huffington Post provided much of the information in this article.

In the controversial book to which The Guardian has had access, Steve Bannon, former advisor to Donald Trump, described Trump with the words "betrayal" and "unpatriotic" during a meeting during the 2016 election campaign.

Bannon referred to this meeting held in June 2016 at Trump Tower (New York), between Trump's son, Donald Jr; his son-in-law, Jared Kushner; the then head of the campaign, Paul Manafort, and the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The truth behind what Trump wanted to achieve

In an extensive article published by Wolff in New York Magazine as a precursor of the book, the journalist argues that Trump only wanted to become the most famous man in the world to boost his business. According to the statements of the US president to Roger Ailes, former director of the Fox News television channel, Trump claimed to have "a much more powerful brand and incalculable opportunities" of profits.

To write the work, the journalist had relied on interviews with 200 people from Trump's cabinet, as well as officials who have been with the president in the almost 12 months he has been in office.

According to some of these testimonies, the figure of the president is viewed with scorn by his surroundings, even his own daughter. Ivanka mocks his father's hairstyle and what he calls "scalp reduction surgery," according to the BBC.

The president did not enjoy his inauguration: "He was angry because the first-class stars had snubbed him." He was not happy with his move within the White House, and he had quarreled with his wife, Melania, who seemed on the verge of tears: "He wore what some call his golf face: angry, shoulders hunched, arms swaying, frowning, and pursed lips."

The head of the US government also did not like the White House that seemed "terrifying." In the first days, he ordered to place two more television screens in his bedroom where there was already one and had a bolt lock placed in his room.

This had caused a brief meeting with the Secret Service that insisted on having access to the bedroom. Trump and Melania sleep in separate rooms, something that has not happened since the time of John and Jackie Kennedy.

Ivanka, president?

The book reveals more intimacies of the most powerful man in the world. When he was not having dinner with his former advisor, Steve Bannon, Trump took shelter in his room to eat a cheeseburger and watched the three television screens while making phone calls, "his true point of contact with the world," to a small group of friends.

Finally, the book also portrays the ambitions of Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner. According to Wolff, they reached an agreement for her to run for president in the future. It was Steve Bannon, Trump's former chief of strategy, who coined the term Jarvanka and who was scandalized by the treatment the couple received at the White House.
