Ghostwriter for Trump’s ‘Art of the Deal’ Says President Will Resign

Tony Schwartz is the ghostwriter for President Trump's book "The Art of the Deal."

The ghostwriter of “The Art of the Deal” thinks President Donald Trump will eventually call it quits.

Tony Schwartz, the man behind Trump’s 1987 memoir, took to Twitter on Wednesday to vocalize his forecast for Trump’s political future.

“The circle is closing at blinding speed,” Schwartz tweeted. “Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice.”

In a follow-up tweet, he added: “Trump’s presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.”

While working on the memoir in the 1980s, Schwartz spent 18 months with Trump. Over the past few years, he has been an outspoken critic of the former businessman, now President.

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he told The New Yorker last year, adding that he feels “a deep sense of remorse” for “presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.”

This is not the first time Schwartz has made predictions about Trump’s presidency. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in May, Schwartz also said he believed Trump will resign and then declare victory.

“I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time, he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign,” Schwartz said. “The reason he’s going to do that, as opposed to go through what could be an impeachment process or a continuing humiliation, is that he wants to figure out a way, as he has done all his career, to turn a loss into a victory. So he will declare victory when he leaves.”

    The entire drama centers around, do you want government to be your nanny or not?
    Lazy persons of working age in good health that choose to have a nanny are like spoiled little kids that want their candy now instead of waiting (working) for bags of candy later. I’ve waited for my candy and now that I can afford bags, you apathetic smart phone zombie froth want me to pay for your insensibility. I say not!
    Trump won for that exact reason and Hillary lost for that exact same reason.

    Ok professor Asstronge PAST does not have an E at the end Mr Buttercup Einstein now get back into your closet snowflake!

  • Genius Imperetrix

    Man! I hope this guy is spot on! I couldn’t care less if he resigns or gets impeached , either way America will be wayyy better for it. I signed the impeachment petition as soon as it was available. Tronald Dump is a disgrace to America and I still can’t believe this moron was elected. sigh…..there…I feel better again.

      Better watch our for what you wish for snowflake. You won’t know what hit you if Pence takes the reigns.
      Watch close for the speaker of the house to change prior to a Trump departure. That’s just a hint, your about to get melted!

  • Jeff Woehrle

    One of the same people who said President Trump had no path to 270.
    Hillary’s “blue wall” would guarantee her the White House.
    Calm down, losers. Your pitiful candidate lost. Get over it.

    Sorces: NYT and CNN, no wounder there is so much democratic party corruption in NEPA, Kids for Cash happened because the local media obeyed the DNC.

    Just remember if some calls you a snowflake wear that shit like a badge of honor.
    There is nothing wrong with being a beautiful, one of a kind, free thinker.
    They use that term because they can’t think for themselves and don’t have the wits to understand that it is a complement not an insult like their master made them think. They can’t lead, don’t understand how to get out of the way, so they just follow like good little sheep. :P
    Don’t even argue with them just smile and realize they are special.

    • How about 'twit' then?

      No, I’m pretty sure it’s still an insult. An actual snowflake is one of a kind, you anti-Trump people, not so much. Videos have shown over and over again that some of the anti’s didn’t even vote and have absolutely no clue what they’re talking about, but they blather and foam on anyhow. So since you are fond of word-smithing, how about ‘twit’ then?

    Another snowflake having a melt down. A Democrat in MO. just declared publicly that she hopes Pres. Trump is assassinated. If a Republican said that about Obama he would have been immediately arrested and prosecuted. Liberals are full of hate, evil and vile people when they don`t get their own way. Tony is a Moran, the more stupid and outlandish statements these liberal alt left keep making the more Trump voters they are adding to the rolls, so keep them coming till all your credibility is gone. Many were not happy with Obama but they did not treat him as the Democrates are now doing to Pres. Trump. This election has unmasked and revealed the hatred and evil of the left and liberals and I believe this is a good thing in the long run because now we know exactly what they are.

  • Dave M

    Hay Tony the cup cake tiger no one cares about your views and further more you are not in touch with the working class Americans that supported our president and voted him in so therefore all of this fake news makes you look like a complete idiot just stop before you completely make a fool of yourself !!!

  • i quit..


  • iseedumbpeople

    If he does choose to resign like the alt-left and all the other clueless and classless haters wish they then will call him a coward and a loser. Many didn’t like obama because of his politics, people don’t like Trump because he is like the strict dad you hate your whole childhood and don’t appreciate until they’re dead and gone. I am ashamed of my fellow americans for their despicable behavior!
    All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
    “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

      • its_all-right

        So typical of the alt-left condescending and smug thinking they can speak for all as if we didn’t have minds of our own but we do because we stay away from the kool-aid!

      • L.J.

        You’re right this is politics not religion, so people need to step aside and let the president do his job and turn this country around, back to the super power it once was. Seek out your pastor if you want condemnation or morality not the politicians and certainly not the media. If he wanted to keep silent from this past weekend’s events, than so be it.

        Yes, left thinks.

        Right sticks to doctrine. Never changes it’s stance even when the ship is sinking.

    • Penumbra

      You got to cut back on that hoooollly wiiiine. You is DUMBPEOPLE.

      In the name of the father, the son and the holly ghost, PUT DOWN THAT DRINK!!!

  • El Ma

    Regardless of how I might feel about the President, the very notion of having Pence take his place is horrifying.

    • Armstrong

      Oh El Ma, we’ll just have the Christian version of Sharia. Can’t have a company dinner of the opposite sex unless your spouse is with you. Can’t drink alcohol. Can’t watch any movies that weren’t made by a mouse. You get the picture.
