Summary of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House This book is a non-fiction book written from the perspective of Michael Wolff. It covers the events and people surrounding Donald Trump from May 2016 through the first 200 days or so of his Presidency. It is based on conversations Wolff had with the President and the people surrounding him. Through the eyes of Trump's closest aides and family members, the book begins with the understanding they all share: Trump will lose the election and everyone will get what they want. However, once Trump is president, everything changes. Trump's White House quickly becomes a power struggle, mostly between Bannon, Trump's campaign manager, and Kushner, Trump's son-in-law. The question is not who will control Trump, because he is uncontrollable, but rather who can get the last word in. Thus, in some ways, this book is more about Bannon and Kushner than about Trump. As expected, having a White House with two competing parties without a leader to make final decisions resulted in a President who appeared bipolar. Kushner started out by hiring a team of other Jews to help him. In retaliation, Bannon started to arrange for leaks about Kushner and Ivanka, and they returned the favor. In time, it was clear that Bannon was losing the war. To placate everyone, Trump agreed not to fire Bannon. However, Trump also promoted Kushner and Ivanka at the same time. By the first 100 days into the Presidency, there were three separate PR teams in the White House. One for Trump, one for Bannon and one for Kushner and Ivanka. Thus, when Trump fired Comey and Muller took over as the head of the Russia investigation, the White House could not get itself organized to mount a solid defense. Eventually, the war came to a head. Trump overheard Bannon screaming at Hope Hicks, one of the people who was helping Kushner and Ivanka manage Trump. Trump himself was completely confused. The situation was reversing. It was Kushner and Ivanka who had pushed for Comey to be fired, and that was turning into a hot mess. Their solution - hire Scaramucci as the Director of Communications - also backfired. Bannon was doing well. At least, he was doing well until Trump hired Kelly to be his new Chief of Staff. Determined to settle the quarrel that was tearing the White House apart, Bannon had to go.
