N. Korea: Popularity of 'Fire and Fury' foretells Trump's end

SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea has found good material to attack President Donald Trump: Michael Wolff's bombshell new book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House."

 

The book paints Trump as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office and whose competence is questioned by aides. Trump and other White House aides have blasted the book as inaccurate trash. But it was the top-selling book last week, and its numbers are likely to grow far higher.

 

On Thursday, the North's main Rodong Sinmun newspaper, run by its ruling Workers' Party, carried an article about the book's subject matter, how Trump reacted and why the book is selling so well.

 

Its sales reflect "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the international community," the article said. "The anti-Trump book is sweeping all over the world so Trump is being massively humiliated worldwide." The book's popularity "foretells Trump's political demise," said the article.
