Author Michael Wolff said in a new interview that he believes President Trump does not want to be the president.
“There is nothing to indicate that … Trump is going to find his footing as the president of the United States, that he’s going to be able to put a staff around him … that knows what they’re doing and a staff that he listens to,” Wolff told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
He added that it seems clear Trump will never settle on “attainable goals.”
Matt Drudge, founder and editor of The Drudge Report, called “bullsh*t” Tuesday on a claim made by author Michael Wolff, who penned “Fire and Fury,” an alleged exposé of President Donald Trump.
Reacting to a story published in The Hill titled, “Michael Wolff: Trump does not want to be president,” Drudge took to Twitter, declaring Wolff’s accounts of Trump “fabricated bullsh*t.” Drudge says he recently dined with President Trump and found him to be “loving his job”:
“Time to call out Michael Wolff and his fabricated bullshit! I had dinner with the president a few weeks ago and he was in fine form.
“He was optimistic, engaged, on top of the world, loving the job.
And already talking about his 2020 re-election run!!”
The Hill article quotes an interview with Wolff, in which the Wolff says:
“In the end, I think that the real truth is he does not want to be the president — the president of the United States.”
“He wants to be, instead, Donald Trump.”
