Sebastian Gorka, a former deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, Thursday slammed the writer of a new book about the president's first months in office, as a "sleazebag" who he'd refused to speak with while he was still at the White House.

"I was asked to talk to him in the White House when he floated around the West Wing and I refused to talk to this guy," Gorka told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" about Michael Wolff, the author of a controversial new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House." 

The book contains several claims from former chief strategist Steve Bannon, leading Trump on Wednesday to declare that Bannon not only had nothing do his presidency, but that he "lost his mind" when he was fired from the White House staff.

Bannon has not denied that he made the claims in the book, and Gorka said he "has to say whether or not he said these things." He also said he blames Wolff, not Bannon, for the contents of the book.

"You need to know that this guy who wrote this book and these are accusations not from Steve but in a book by Michael Wolff," Gorka said. "He is a sleazebag."

Gorka continued that an excerpt in the New York Magazine, published on Wednesday from the book, is "full of inaccuracies and lies."

"The fact that the president was supposedly unaware of who [former House Speaker] John Boehner is, it's bogus," Gorka said. "The president is a vacuum cleaner of information. The idea that he doesn't read stuff . . . in his office when I first met him in New York he had stacks of pieces of paper that weren't there for decoration. It's because he was reading them. This guy [Wolff] is a hack."

He predicted that only people who hate Trump will read further into the book when it's released next week.

"The president had a crushing year," Gorka said. "Think about what happened whether it's the economy, whether it's ISIS, whether it's the southern border, revitalizing NATO, the Asia trip. It's just, you know, the successes of building upon each other in a way that the media cannot deny so what do they do? Generate falsehoods."

However, Trump's base will keep believing in his "Make America Great Again" agenda, said Gorka, and "that's great, because 2018 is going to be a fabulous year."
