Journalist Michae Wolff is set to release his new book detailing the behind the scenes drama of Donald Trump's campaign and first year in office. As expected, the president has decided to lash out on Twitter.

Trump on "Fire and Fury"

Earlier this week, excerpts were released from the upcoming book by Michael Wolff titled "Fire And Fury: Inside the Trump White House." Wolff was given access into the White House on multiple occasions, interviewing various members of the administration in an attempt to put together a comprehensive look at the Donald Trump administration.

The main source of information came from Steve Bannon, the current head of Breitbart News who served as Chief Strategist to the president until last August. Once select excerpts were released, it revealed that Bannon had turned on Trump, bashing not just staff and administration, but also insulting members of the president's family, including referring to First Daughter Ivanka Trump as "dumb as a brick" and calling a meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr. and Russian officials as "treasonous." In response, Trump went on to deny the validity of the book and attacked Bannon. As seen on his Twitter feed on January 4, Trump was back on the defensive.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday night, Donald Trump went off on Michael Wolff over the release of his book, before taking time to give Steve Bannon a new nickname.

"I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book!" Trump said.

"I never spoke to him for book," Donald Trump went on to tweet, claiming the "Fire and Fury" book was "Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist." In conclusion, Trump went on to add "Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!"

Trump's deflection

In an attempt to move forward, Donald Trump tweeted out just a few minutes later by ripping into the news media.

"The Fake News Media barely mentions the fact that the Stock Market just hit another New Record and that business in the U.S. is booming...but the people know!" Trump tweeted, before adding. "Can you imagine if 'O' was president and had these numbers - would be biggest story on earth! Dow now over 25,000."

On Wednesday night, Donald Trump's legal team threatened potential legal action against Steve Bannon for allegedly violating a nondisclosure agreement when he left his job at the White House. Trump also pushed for Michael Wolff not to release his book, but due to popular demand, "Fire and Fury" had its release date bumped up to this Friday.
