Trump Defends Calling Himself a Stable Genius as #StableGenius Trends on Twitter

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon made a lengthy statement apologizing for the explosive comments he made that were quoted in Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire & Fury: Inside the Trump White House".

"My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda - as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama".

Bannon was quoted eviscerating President Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr., his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law Jared Kushner. "If they were stronger, hopefully, you would not have something like that happen", he said.

"Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian "collusion" investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview".

The UK prime minister has said she believes US President Donald Trump is committed to the best interests of the US.

Michael Wolff: The sharp tongued author has previously written books on Rupert Murdoch and other big "money guys".

White House officials and Trump's high-profile supporters have launched an effort to raise doubts about Wolff's credibility.

Donald Trump began his Saturday morning by advising the world he is a "very stable genius" and calling his two greatest assets "mental stability and being, like, really smart".

Speaking to Fox News, Mr Pompeo said allegations about the United States president's lack of competence were "absurd, just pure fantasy".

Mr Trump angrily responded to the publication of the comments on Thursday, saying Mr Bannon had lost his mind, while the White House suggested the hard-right news site Breitbart News should part ways with him as its executive chairman.

Chatter about Mr Trump's mental fitness for office has intensified in recent months on cable news shows and among Democrats in Congress. White House spokesman Sarah Sanders said earlier in the week that the book includes "mistake after mistake after mistake". It didn't exist, OK?

Wolff told NBC on Sunday that "I truly do not want to say the president is a liar", but that he had indeed spoken with Trump for about three hours during and since the campaign.

Reagan, the Republican US president from 1981-1989, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1994 and died in 2004. At times when he was president, Reagan seemed forgetful and would lose his train of thought while talking.
