The president also said that the U.S. should have tougher libel laws to prevent the type of character assassination he suffered in Mr. Wolff's new book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House". In addition to that, he lashed out at Bannon, calling him "Sloppy Steve" for giving an interview to Wolff.
Bannon is reportedly quoted in the book as having said, when he heard about her plan to run for president, "Stop".
