President Donald Trump is praising a major Republican donor family for distancing themselves from his former adviser Steve Bannon.

Trump tweeted Friday: 

Trump has lashed out at Bannon over a new book that quotes his former aide questioning the president's competence.

On Thursday Rebekah Mercer issued a statement distancing her family from Bannon. She is a billionaire GOP donor and co-owner of Breitbart, the populist website that Bannon helps run.

Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," was released Friday. The publisher moved up the release by four days.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Friday said that Bannon met on "multiple occasions" with Wolff.

She said that Bannon "spent a lot more time with reporters than he ever did with the president."
