The release of Michael Wolff's book "Fire And Fury: Inside the Trump White House" has dominated the news coverage in recent days and Donald Trump is not happy about it. After getting released on Friday, the president decided to lash out on social media.

Trump on Bannon

It was earlier this week when select excerpts of Michael Wolff's new book were released to the media, who proceeded to have a field day with its contents. Wolff had access to the Donald Trump campaign and the White House following the president's inauguration, and the administration were hopeful that the book would be a positive look at the commander in chief.

Despite this, Wolff's major source of information came from Steve Bannon, who at one time was Trump's right hand man during the campaign and later a Chief Strategist in the White House. That all came to an end once Bannon was let go over the summer after various reports of the Breitbart News head clashing with members of the Trump family. After the book was released and it was revealed that Bannon had been highly critical of Trump, the president quickly accused him of "losing his mind." Doubling down on his criticism, Trump returned to Twitter to continued his attack on January 8.

In a tweet sent out on Friday night, Donald Trump pulled no punches in his feud with Steve Bannon and Michael Wolff.

"Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book," Trump tweeted out.

"He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job," Donald Trump went on to write. "Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone," the president continued, before adding, "Too bad!" Trump's comments on Bannon are in reference to big money conservative donors who have decided to pull their support due to the comments made in the book, including Rebekah Mercer.

In addition, new reports have also confirmed that Breitbart News is considering firing Bannon in an attempt to distance themselves from his feud with the president.
