‘Art Of The Deal’ Writer Predicts Trump Will Resign Before Getting Impeached

The president “is in a pretty significant meltdown,” according to the co-author of Donald Trump’s “Art of the Deal” book.

According to Yahoo News, Tony Schwartz told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday that Trump “is in pure terror that he is going to lose.” The writer explained: “There is no right and wrong for Trump; there’s winning and losing.” Though the administration is under siege from Democrats and the news media for its Russian connections and other scandals, Schwartz predicted that the president would avoid impeachment.

“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,” the author said, according to Mediaite. He suggested that Trump will attempt 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.”

Schwartz, who knows the real-estate mogul well because of the two men’s longtime association, theorized about Trump’s mental state. “I think he’s reacting from a survival place. I think he’s being run by the part of his brain that’s reactive and impulsive, not capable of reflection and I think he’s in pure defensive mode,” the writer said.

“Evidence of his meltdown is the fact that he’s starting to scream at (White House adviser and son-in-law) Jared Kushner. Honestly, I think his kids are next. I can honestly easily see him going after Ivanka if she says the wrong thing right now. I remember very vividly when I was working with him how terrified people would be of going up against him in any way when you could sense that he was feeling I can guarantee you he is feeling right now.”

Yahoo noted that Schwartz frequently slammed Trump during last year’s presidential race. The writer served as an unpaid adviser to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. “This is my penance for having created a man who has become a monster,” he said two months before the election. “I’ve spent 30 years feeling bad about it.”

Schwartz pledged to contribute his income from “Art of the Deal” to the National Immigration Law Center, which assists low-income foreigners seeking to enter the United States. During his campaign, Trump promised to crack down on illegal immigration. He told his supporters he would build a wall along the nation’s southern border and “make Mexico pay for it.” The candidate also called for a ban on Muslim immigrants.
