White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday slammed an upcoming book by writer Michael Wolff in which former chief strategist Steve Bannon rips President Donald Trump as never expecting to win the 2016 election.

"This book from Michael Wolff is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House," Sanders said in a statement to reporters.

"Participating in a book that can only be described as trashy tabloid fiction exposes their sad desperate attempts at relevancy," she said.

Trump bashed Bannon and his comments in the book, saying that the former top aide "not only lost his job, he lost his mind" when he was fired last August.

Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," offers many explosive and unflattering revelations, including Bannon's description of a 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Trump campaign aides and a Russian lawyer as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic."

Bannon also said that a "zero" percent chance existed that President Trump himself did not know of the meeting at the time.

The book was first excerpted by The Guardian — and an adaptation was published in New York magazine.

In his statement, Trump said, in part: "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency. When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.

"Steve was a staffer who worked for me after I had already won the nomination by defeating seventeen candidates, often described as the most talented field ever assembled in the Republican Party," he said.
