“This is a book of fiction. Not only is it not accurate, there are so many misrepresentations in this book that it shouldn’t be taken seriously," he continued, adding “This book is a complete fabrication."

Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House," caused a frenzy in Washington last week. 

The book is filled with various claims about Trump and those close to him, such as Lewandowski. 

Wolff writes in the book that Lewandowski considered Donald Trump Jr.Donald (Don) John TrumpBannon: I don’t believe that Trump says things that are not true Giuliani: 'I doubt' Trump knew Roger Stone met with Russian during 2016 campaign The Hill's Morning Report — 'Sobering' IG report damages FBI MORE and Eric TrumpEric Frederick TrumpThe Hill's Morning Report — 'Sobering' IG report damages FBI Five things to know about the lawsuit against the Trump Foundation Ivana weighs in on Trump: 'His only weakness is the Big Mac' MORE to be stupid, and that he referred to Jared KushnerJared Corey KushnerPress: Drain the swamp – of Scott Pruitt North Korea looked to set up communications back channel through Kushner: report Prison reform, peace, and pardons: Jared Kushner's bold and lasting portfolio MORE as "the butler," which Lewandoski denied on Sunday. 

“Mr. Wolff and I never spoke about this book, so where he comes up with the assertions on what I think of the Trump kids or Jared Kushner are completely made up. I’ve never spoken to him about this," Lewandowski said. 

The White House and the president have pushed back on the claims made in the book, and have maintained they are untrue. 

Lewandowski in the interview noted that Wolff acknowledges in the book’s introduction that it contains conflicting and untrue statements. He writes that certain accounts reflect “a version of events I believe to be true."
