President of the United States Donald Trump, under a storm of criticism of his mental abilities, wrote on Twitter that he considers himself a genius.
While his opponents resort to tactics of the era of Ronald Reagan, who served as president of the United States in 1981-1989.
Earlier, journalist Michael Wolff, author of the scandalous book “Fire and Fury: in the White House of Trump” said that Trump’s intellectual abilities do not allow him to be president.
The White House categorically denied the contents of the book, which said that Trump did not expect to become president, and his wife Melania Trump was terrified of the prospect of becoming the first lady.
Wolff actively refers to Stephen Bannon, who worked as a Trump adviser on strategic issues in January-August 2017. In addition, Bannon is credited with accusing him of betraying Donald Trump Jr., the son of the American leader, because of his meeting with Natalia Veselnitskaya, a Russian lawyer. This meeting is often mentioned by supporters of the theory of “Russian intervention” in the American elections.
The White House, in turn, said that Bannon not only informed the author of the book of false information, but also violated the agreement, according to which he should not tell the press or authors of his work in the White House and Trump’s campaign headquarters.
