Stephen Miller said the "whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments" in the scathing tell-all book by Michael Wolff that paints Trump as unprepared for the presidency and portrays his aides as concerned about his performance. Add Trump Administration as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Trump Administration news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

"He owes Donald Trump, he owes Donald Trump Jr., he owes Jared Kushner and the entire Trump family an apology if that's what he said". "He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning and not our friends".

"Not only do I think [the tweets] help, but I think in the toxic environment that you've created here in CNN and cable news, which is a real crisis of legitimacy for your network - and we saw it, of course, with the extremely fake news that you reported about the Don Jr. and WikiLeaks story. I am the only person to date to conduct a global effort to preach the message of Trump and Trumpism; and remain ready to stand in the breach for this president's efforts to make America great again".

Mr Trump previously defended himself on Twitter as a "very stable genius" and "like, really smart". But before he could do so, the White House released a personal statement from Trump, who claimed that his former adviser had "lost his mind".

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President". "The author is a garbage author of a garbage book". Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well.

"The book is best understood as a work of poorly written fiction". He also termed Bannon's comments in the book "vindictive" and "out of touch with reality".

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller appears during a televised interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on January 7, 2018.

Tapper, sensing that Miller was catering to a very specific viewer with his comments, said, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy you said that".

In rare Sunday-show appearances, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said he's found the president "engaged" and an avid consumer of the intelligence agency's daily briefing.

"No one questions the stability of the president", Haley said.

Bannon's statement continued: "Everything I have to say about the ridiculous nature of the Russian "collusion" investigation I said on my 60 Minutes interview".

Trump has been an "active, engaged and effective leader", said Senator Tom Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, on ABC's "This Week".

Conservative political operative Corey Lewandowski, who managed Trump's campaign from January 2015 to June 2016, was similarly disturbed by Bannon's critiques. Tapper was referring to Miller's boss, President Donald J. Trump.
