US President Donald Trump on Saturday rejected an author's accusations that he is mentally unfit for office and said his track record showed he is a "stable genius."

Michael Wolff, who was granted unusually wide access to the White House during much of Trump's first year, has said in promoting his book, "Fire and Fury - Inside the Trump White House," that Trump is unfit for the presidency.

 

Trump, in a series of extraordinary morning posts on Twitter, said his Democratic critics and the US news media were bringing up the "old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence" since they have not been able to bring him down in other ways.

 

Reagan, a Republican who was the US president from 1981-1989, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1994 and died in 2004.

 

"Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart," said Trump, a former reality TV star.

 

"I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star ... to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius ... and a very stable genius at that!"
