US President Donald Trump on Saturday praised himself as "a very stable genius", following the release of a bombshell book that calls into doubt his mental health.
In a series of extraordinary early-morning tweets, Trump said that "throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart".
"I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!"
The White House has been pushing back forcefully against a new supposed tell-all book - Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House - which was rushed into stores on Friday after the Trump administration failed to suppress it.
The book quickly sold out in Washington and has been the talk of the town. Trump has decried the instant best-seller as "phony" and "full of lies" as the White House issued a scorched-earth dismissal of Fire and Fury along with its author and his sources.
Yet the sensational details in the new book and Trump's continued defence of his mental health have wrenched attention away from policy and news of US financial markets hitting all-time highs, bringing even more scrutiny over whether the US leader is fit for office.
