Mr Bannon's reaction to the book controversy has been muted.
Mr Trump hit back yesterday, saying in a statement that when Mr Bannon was sacked, "he not only lost his job, he lost his mind".
The self-appointed keeper of Trump's nationalist flame during the president's first six months in office, Bannon had soured on the president even before he was pushed out of the White House for feeding the perception that he was Trump's puppeteer. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders went so far as to suggest that Bannon ought to be booted from Breitbart, the populist website he helps run.
"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s--, and I happen to think it's all of that you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately", Bannon is quoted in Wolff's book as saying of the legal implications of the June 2016 meeting.
A lawsuit could hurt Mr Trump, because Mr Bannon's lawyers would be entitled to interview White House officials and collect potentially damaging documents from them in his defence, Washington lawyer Bradley Moss said. "She was confident he would win and was very happy when he did", Grisham said in a statement.
According to your article, President Trump excommunicated his onetime chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, from his political circle, excoriating him, in your words, as "a self-promoting exaggerator".
In the book, an advance copy of which was provided to The Associated Press, Bannon is quoted as describing a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".
In researching the book, Wolff said he had been able to take up "something like a semi-permanent seat on a couch in the West Wing" following the president's inauguration.
Trump appears to have been most upset by the betrayal of Bannon - the man who engineered the NY real estate mogul's link to the nationalist far right and helped create a pro-Trump media ecosystem.
Bannon was preparing to launch a nonprofit organization created to help give Trump's brand of conservatism populism a permanent base. "I've never had such conversation in the White House, outside of the White House, with Jared Kushner, with anybody else", Mr Blair said.
On his Breitbart radio show on Wednesday, Mr Bannon responded to the president's criticism by saying he was a "great man" and that he supported him "day in and day out". Bannon believes that they have exposed Trump to the Russian Federation probe that could topple his presidency and that Trump would be able to accomplish more without them. "I'd like to associate myself with what the president had to say about Steve Bannon yesterday, " he said mischievously Thursday. "He obviously changed his tune pretty quick".
Some Trump allies even encouraged him to welcome Bannon back into his good graces.
