In many ways, the Wolff book will actually help Trump

WASHINGTON-Former Trump senior strategist Stephen Bannon apologized Sunday for his role in a new book critical of the Trump administration as senior White House officials sharpened the administration's attack on it.

"Donald Trump, Jr.is both a patriot and a good man". "Whether he realized it was an interview or not, I don't know, but it certainly was not off the record", said Wolff.

Vanity Fair's Emily Jane Fox wrote that the Trump-Kushners are relishing Bannon's rapid slide into pariah status as his funders desert him and the board at Breitbart.com struggles to decide whether he should be allowed to remain as the company's CEO. "It's a political witch hunt orchestrated by the left", Bannon's statement was going to say, according to the source familiar with the situation.

The book - which Newsweek reports has sold out on major retailers' websites - gained buzz after excerpts became available online earlier this week, prompting a storm of tweets from Trump - whose lawyer has threatened to sue the book's publisher. "He has been relentless in his advocacy for his father and the agenda that has helped turn our country around", Bannon said in a statement to Axios. Bannon said Manafort was "a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate".

The president also claimed that Bannon "cried when he got fired and begged for his job. He should have known they are duplicitous, cunning, and not our friends". "To reiterate, those comments were not aimed at Don Jr".

The statement later adds: "I regret that my delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention from the president's historical accomplishments in the first year of (Trump's) presidency".

Trump attacked Bannon several times for the comment, calling him "sloppy" and even saying Bannon cried when he was sacked.
