"I think Steve wrestled with that in very, very tough ways", Wolff said.
"Steve had very little to do with our historic victory, which was delivered by the forgotten men and women of this country".
Of course, while there has been a landslide of skepticism about the accuracy of the book, Wolff, a journalist, author of several books and a columnist, stands by his writing and has said so repeatedly during interviews. NBC devoted 44 minutes and 3 seconds to the Wolff and Bannon topics. The White House has been quick to suggest that the book is a work of fiction. The representation doesn't extend to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe or to Bannon's transition to government and his White House service, the person said. For now, I'll go with the final paragraph of the Politifact.com article.
Wolff said Bannon thought that win, along with the publication of the book, would have put Bannon in a stronger position and give him the leverage to break with Trump.
The boom in sales of Wolff's book has inadvertently helped a completely different title.
Bannon issued a statement Sunday expressing regret: "I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of his presidency".
"The anti-Trump book is sweeping all over the world so Trump is being massively humiliated worldwide", the Rodong Sinmun, the state-run paper of the ruling Worker's Party, assessed Thursday, according to the Associated Press.
"Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books". "This is about what I saw what I heard.to the best of my ability to get what I believe to be the true story". In response to Bannon's having called a June 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russians "treasonous" and "unpatriotic", Trump said in a statement that his former colleague had "lost his mind".
