In a statement, Trump said Bannon has nothing to do with his presidency and has "lost his mind".

"The has been very clear on his thoughts; issued a four-paragraph statement about Mr Bannon. Zero ambiguity in those statements. It was obvious that the book was false and fake," Gidley said.

"The pointed to that and also pointed that Mr Bannon is not in it for the country but instead in it for himself. And those statements still stand," he said.

In the book, Bannon described Trump's Jared Kushner's meeting with a Russian as "treasonous" and "unpatriotic".

"When you go after somebody's family, in the manner in which he did -- two of the President's children who are serving this nation, sacrificing in their service -- it is repugnant, it is grotesque.
