Meanwhile, Donald Trump told his Cabinet Wednesday that he’s looking to strengthen U.S. libel laws, after a book portraying the president as childlike and incompetent rocketed to the top of the best-seller list. Trump made the remarks as the White House continued to rail against the book, “Fire and Fury,” by author Michael Wolff.
President Donald Trump: “Our current libel laws are a sham and a disgrace and do not represent American values or American fairness. So we’re going to take a strong look at that. We want fairness. You can’t say things that are false, knowingly false, and be able to smile as money pours into your bank account.”
