The hysteria that is made with the new book full of scandalous claims and shocking accusations has found its way across the Atlantic with speculation that U.S. and U.K. relations now depend on a wedding invitation.
Michael Wolff’s explosive instant best-seller, Fire, And Fury: Inside The Trump White House has not only influenced the news cycle on both sides of the political divide but set off a verbal battle between the president and the author.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the While White House Press Secretary called the book “complete fantasy,” The president himself called the author “a total loser,” and took to Twitter to challenge the more insulting allegations made by Wolff.
Wolff in an interview with The Mail on Sunday reported that the Trump would exact revenge on the U.K. if he is snubbed and not invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s May wedding, even going so far as to put post-Brexit trade deals in danger.
Wolff didn’t stop there, claiming that the president would treat Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II “like a reality contestant” if an invitation to a state visit is extended – which would be over the objections of London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Numerous of the shocking claims in the book center around the president’s fitness for the job, quoting extensively from White House staff, as well as the Cabinet and the Trump family.
Those in the inner circle have denied cooperating with Wolff, but the author didn’t source his allegations that the president would disrespect the longstanding “special relationship” between the U.S. and Britain unless he “gets what he wants” – and that is an invitation to the Royal Wedding.
Invitations to Royal Weddings and not usually extended to heads of state, they are a matter of protocol, except the royal party is next in line to the throne.
First Lady Nancy Reagan attended the wedding of the heir apparent, Prince Charles, and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981, and also represented the United States at the wedding of his younger brother, Prince Andrew, to Sarah Ferguson in 1986.
In addition to the claims about Trump’s likely reaction to a wedding snub, Wolff believes that Trump did not know what Brexit was “as late as two weeks” before the vote in 2016.
Neither the White House press secretary nor the president commented on Wolff’s unsupported allegations about the impact a wedding invitation snub would have on Anglo-American relations.
Do you believe our President would damage the special relationship between America and Great Britain over an invitation to a Royal wedding
