White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued to criticize the book on Friday.

Trump's tweets came on the heels of Michael Wolff's explosive new book about the Trump White House.

The US president hit back after an explosive account of life at the White House claimed he never meant to enter the Oval Office and his staff believed he was not fit to hold high office.

"In the tweets, Trump added that he'd gone from being a very successful businessman to top TV star ".to President of the United States (on my first try).

While the president said he never spoke to Wolff for the book, the author said he spoke to Trump during the campaign and after the inauguration. "They say he's a moron, an idiot".

"I guess sloppy Steve (Bannon) brought him into the White House quite a bit.that's why sloppy Steve is looking for a job".

"Where do I send the box of chocolates?" he said.

"What's I think is really mentally unstable" is people not seeing the progress the president is making.

Wolff said he was stunned when Trump hit him and publisher Henry Holt and Co. with a cease-and-desist letter on Thursday.

As for questions about his credibility, including about his previous reporting projects, Wolff said, "My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility than perhaps anyone who has ever walked on Earth at this point".

The President's fitness for office has been questioned since the publication of a highly critical book, Fire and Fury, which claims that Mr Trump's former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, questioned his competence. "It's all about him". "He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job".

Trump and his allies quickly hit back at Wolff and Bannon following the book's release.

"Steve pretends to be at war with the media, which he calls the opposition party, yet he spent his time at the White House leaking false information to the media to make himself seem far more important than he was", Trump said. "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".

"Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by nearly everyone", Trump continued in his tweet.

In his Twitter messages, Trump said his detractors, including Democrats and the media, were shifting from stories about Russian collusion with members of his campaign team, which he's repeatedly denied, to focusing on his fitness for office.
