The full text of Michael Wolff's damning book on Donald Trump has been released on Wikileaks, a move likely to draw the ire of the US President.

Wikileaks tweeted a link to the book shortly after 1am this morning. The message read "Full text of controversial book on Trump, "Fire and Fury", by Michael Wolff, leaks onto internet."

The book contains allegations from Trump's former right-hand man Steve Bannon, as well as a number of remarkable claims, including that Melania Trump cried when she found out her husband had won the US election in November 2016.

Wikileaks, run by hard-line Trump critic Julian Assange, quickly deleted the message but the link has spread like wildfire across the internet nonetheless.

Some critics on Twitter urged their fellow users not to download the book, with one suggesting this is actually what Trump wants.

Trump has condemned the book as a work of fiction, and hit out at Bannon, calling him "Sloppy Steve."

The President's lawyers have also tried to block the publication of the book, but to no avail.
