Donald Trump continued to attack the author of a book that was highly critical of him by calling it a disgrace that someone "can do something like that." The book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," was written by an author who was given an all access pass into Trump's White House, but the President now claims the author maligned him unfairly and that the book he released is a work of fiction. Now Trump wants to loosen the libel laws so people will think twice before writing something that is critical of him.
