For instance, the book claims that he likes to be in bed by 6:30 pm with a cheeseburger while watching three televisions.

Some of the stories in the book seem so ridiculous that people are even starting to believe fake stories about the President.

Wolff's book has been heavily criticised by Trump's supporters and the official GOP Twitter account has condemned its publication with a satirical poster of cherry-picked review quotes.

Trump quote retweeted the poster and laid into Wolff and his former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

The President claimed that Bannon cried when he was fired from the White House, branded him "Sloppy Steve" and said Wolff was a "total loser."

Extracts from the book, published by New York magazine, claim that Trump's 'childlike' behavior is a major part of the dysfunction in the White House and his administration.

With this in mind, Trump didn't exactly do himself any favours by resorting to calling people names and teasing them on social media.
