The publication of fragments from the book of the famous journalist Michael Wolff “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” caused a real outrage. The fragments appeared in the New York Magazine on Wednesday, January 3.

Michael Wolff had 200 interviews with senior staff, asking them what they thought about each other – and the boss. Trump’s press secretary calls the book “complete fantasy.”

The book firstly scheduled for Tuesday will be released four days earlier.

“Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of ‘Fire and Fury,’ by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9,” a Henry Holt spokeswoman told CNN Thursday afternoon.

Here are some of the most stunning claims taken from excerpts from the book that have been released:

  • Trump didn’t want to be president

According to the author, Donald Trump didn’t want to become a president and was shocked when he knew the results, he “looked as if he had seen a ghost” the book says.

“Once he lost, Trump would be both insanely famous and a martyr to Crooked Hillary,” Wolff wrote.

“His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared (Kushner) would be international celebrities. Steve Bannon would become the de facto head of the tea-party movement. Kellyanne Conway would be a cable-news star. Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.”

Melania was upset as well and  “was in tears — and not of joy” – Wolff wrote.

  • Trump’s afraid of being poisoned

According to Wolff, one of the reasons the president likes to eat at McDonald’s is because of his longtime fear of being poisoned.

“Nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade,” Wolff wrote, according to an excerpt obtained by CNBC.

  • Trump was angry that A-level stars snubbed the inauguration

In an excerpt published by New York magazine, Wolff wrote:

“Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration. He was angry that A-level stars had snubbed the event, disgruntled with the accommodations at Blair House, and visibly fighting with his wife, who seemed on the verge of tears. Throughout the day, he wore what some around him had taken to calling his golf face: angry and pissed off, shoulders hunched, arms swinging, brow furled, lips pursed.”

  • Ivanka’s presidential ambitions

Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, took jobs with the Trump administration against the advice of “almost everyone they knew” with their sights set on a possible future run for the White House, according to an excerpt obtained by BBC News.

The couple agreed that if an opportunity presented itself in the future, Ivanka Trump would run for president.

According to Wolff, “Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”

  • The secret of Trump’s hair

The book also reveals a veil of mystery over the strange hair of the US leader. As Wolf writes, Ivanka Trump explained it to her friends:

“…absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction ­surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray. The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”

  • Trump about Steve Bannon

Mr Trump was said to have called Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist, disloyal and scruffy, to have labeled Mr Priebus weak and a midget, his son-in-law Jared Kushner a “suck-up,” while Mr Spicer was “stupid” and dressed terribly, and Mrs Conway was reportedly referred to as a “crybaby”.

Mr Trump also reportedly called Hope Hicks, his communications director, a “piece of tail,” and suggested Mr Kushner and his daughter Ivanka should never have come to Washington.
