President Donald Trump on Wednesday dismissed former top aide John Bolton's explosive accusations about the White House in an upcoming book as "pure fiction."
In a tweet calling the former national security advisor a "sick puppy," Trump said the book is "a compilation of lies and made up stories, all intended to make me look bad."
"Many of the ridiculous statements he attributes to me were never made, pure fiction," Trump said.
Bolton’s book, which is getting terrible reviews, is a compilation of lies and made up stories, all intended to make me look bad. Many of the ridiculous statements he attributes to me were never made, pure fiction. Just trying to get even for firing him like the sick puppy he is!— Donald J.

The White House is seeking an injunction to prevent distribution of "The Room Where it Happened," which details what Bolton says is proof that Trump is not "fit for office."
