US President Donald Trump and his lawyers at the #white house have been trying to block Michael Wolff’s new book about his Presidency, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” from being published. But this backlash has only led to increased publicity for the book and the publication date being moved up to this Friday. So, here are the most surprising titbits in the new tome.

Trump wouldn’t even invest $10 million of his $3.7 billion net worth

According to Wolff’s book, Trump staffers Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway were only added to his Presidential campaign after it was requested by billionaire Robert Mercer, who had donated $5 million to the campaign.

Bannon’s first note was that Trump, who often brags about being a multibillionaire, had not invested any money into his own campaign. They calculated that $50 million was needed to get the campaign to Election Night, and they only had $40 million. Trump only agreed to pledge the remaining $10 million from his own money on the condition that they would reimburse him with future donations. He wouldn’t even put a fraction of his own money into his own campaign. What a stingy, spineless, orange taint.

Also, midway through the Trump campaign, his aide Sam Nunberg was tasked with explaining the Constitution to him (he was halfway through a Presidential campaign and knew nothing about the Constitution), but apparently by the Fourth Amendment, “his eyes [were] rolling back in his head.” #Donald Trump #Michael Wolff
