"It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive and the whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments", Miller said on Sunday. Many in the president's circle had been urging Trump for weeks to publicly distance himself from Bannon and used the fallout from the book to persuade the president to sever ties with him.

Throughout the interview, Miller repeatedly praised Trump's political prowess, knocking the "so-called political geniuses in Washington" who didn't predict the populist Republican's ascent.

Manafort should have know the Russians "are duplicitous, cunning and not our friend", Bannon said.

Bannon said he regretted that his "delay in responding to the inaccurate reporting regarding Don Jr has diverted attention" from Trump's achievement.

The very public apology was just the latest fallout from the release of "Fire and Fury", in which Wolff claims, after having had access to the West Wing during the first months of the Trump administration, that numerous president's top aides and confidants consider him paranoid, inept and even unfit to hold office.

"I went from VERY successful businessman, to top TV Star to President of the United States (on my first try)", he tweeted.

Miller dismissed both Bannon and Wolff's credibility, saying the author was a "garbage author of a garbage book", and that claims in the book were "a pile of trash". Ronald Reagan had the same problem and handled it well.

The White House issued a statement Wednesday attacking Bannon as excerpts of the book emerged with quotes attributed to him that denigrated the President and Donald Trump Jr.

Miller appeared on Tapper's "State of the Union" program Sunday morning to defend the president from charges leveled in the new book "Fire and Fury" by journalist Michael Wolff about dysfunction in the White House.

President Donald J. Trump tweeted his approval moments ago, saying Stephen Miller "destroyed" the "Fake News CNN".

"You're not answering the questions", said Tapper, adding, "I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time" before cutting to commercial.

In rare Sunday-show appearances, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said he's found the president "engaged" and an avid consumer of the intelligence agency's daily briefing.

Miller refused to answer serious questions about the New York Times report that special counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the Russian Federation investigation, has in his possession a letter outlining the president's reasoning for firing former FBI Director James Comey - which Miller reportedly had a hand in drafting.
