For years, the ghostwriter behind Donald Trump’s 1987 memoir has made it clear that he regrets promoting the president’s success in business. And now, in light of a New York Times report revealing that Trump’s businesses were not as successful as the president claimed, Art of the Deal ghostwriter Tony Schwartz suggested renaming the book wouldn’t be the worst idea.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper earlier this week, Schwartz suggested that if he had to rename The Art of the Deal, he would call it The Sociopath.
"I think that’s a window into why he doesn’t experience the kind of overwhelm of pressure and tension at the level you or I would, or most people would, because he has no conscience, he has no guilt," Schwartz told Cooper. "He does not experience the world in the way an ordinary human being would."
Schwartz also tweeted Wednesday that he would be perfectly fine with The Art of the Deal being pulled from print, or simple recategorized as fiction. Schwartz’s comments this week came on the heels of a New York Times report indicating that Trump’s businesses claimed over $1 billion in losses during a 10-year period back in the 1980s and 90s.
