The ghostwriter behind Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal told The New Yorker that he feels deep remorse for contributing to “presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.”
Author Tony Schwartz said in an interview with the magazine that if he wrote the same book today, he’d call it The Sociopath.
“I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization,” Schwartz said. “Trump only takes two positions. Either you’re a scummy loser, liar, whatever, or you’re the greatest.”
Schwartz claims that Trump’s short attention span has left him with “a stunning level of superficial knowledge and plain ignorance.”
Starting in late 1985, Schwartz spent eighteen months with Trump—camping out in his office, joining him on his helicopter, tagging along at meetings, and spending weekends with him at his Manhattan apartment and his Florida estate. During that period, Schwartz felt, he had got to know him better than almost anyone else outside the Trump family.
