The publisher of Michael Wolff’s explosive new book about President Trump’s first year in the White House will allow stores to begin selling it four days early due to “unprecedented demand” following a last-minute attempt by President Trump to stop the book from going public with legal threats.
Henry Holt & Company, the publisher of Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” is allowing several retailers to begin selling the book on Friday, CNN reports.
“Due to unprecedented demand, we are moving the on-sale date for all formats of ‘Fire and Fury,’ by Michael Wolff, to Friday, January 5, at 9 a.m. ET, from the current on-sale date of Tuesday, January 9,” a spokesperson for Henry Holt told CNN on Thursday.
Wolff took to Twitter to thank President Trump on Thursday.
Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President.

“Here we go. You can buy it (and read it) tomorrow. Thank you, Mr. President,” Wolff tweeted.
“We saw a huge spike in demand yesterday,” Terry Finley, chief executive of Books-a-Million, told The Wall Street Journal about the book. “President Trump’s attack absolutely stirred interest.”
Trump’s attorneys have sent a cease-and-desist letter to Henry Holt demanding they not publish the book and apologize to Trump, he Washington Post reported Thursday.
After the excerpts were released on Wednesday, Trump ripped Bannon, accusing him of having “lost his mind.”
