In light of Michael Wolff's new book, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” detractors have revived the claim that President Donald Trump is not mentally fit to govern.

The author told BBC radio his story “seems to present this presidency in such a way that it says he can't do his job.”

Trump said his ability to go from a “very successful businessman” to a top television star to the president of the United States qualifies not only as smart but as “genius.”

“A very stable genius at that,” he added.
