Trump’s Art of the Deal ghostwriter feels ‘deep sense of remorse’ for contributing to ‘sociopath’s’ fame

Donald Trump has regularly boasted about The Art of the Deal, his best-selling autobiography, as a business bible that demonstrates the sharp negotiating prowess he would bring to the presidency. The book, released in 1987, details his rise to the top of New York’s real estate world; it helped spawn his career as a reality television star and cemented his image as a winner with a golden touch.

But Tony Schwartz, the book’s ghostwriter, who spent 18 months in the 1980s interviewing and shadowing Trump, says that it is really a work of fiction.

In an interview with The New Yorker magazine for its July 25 issue, Schwartz explained publicly, and for the first time, what he learned from living in Trump’s world. Here are some highlights.

He's the Liar

If he helped print a lie, then he's the liar. If he didn't, then he's still the liar now. Considering the name, I'd suggest some members of a particular ethnic group that hates Trump has influenced him to say these things now. Money exchanged hands???? I heard his interview and watched his body language and it screamed "LIAR".

In reply to: He's the Liar

And the person that TOLD the lie isn't a LIAR?

Why would TheRUMP boast about the book IF he thought/should KNOW it was a LIE?

Unless TheRUMP IS a LIAR?

Money exchanged hands????

Are you asking that of the man that claims to be worth $9Billion?

Most people don't get $9B without money changing hands.

I heard his interview and watched his body language and it screamed "LIAR".

So you're saying they're both liars...

Donald Trump Threatens the Ghostwriter of “The Art of the Deal”

Greenblatt demands that Schwartz send “a certified check made payable to Mr. Trump” for all of the royalties he had earned on the book, along with Schwartz’s half of the book’s five-hundred-thousand-dollar advance. (The memoir has sold approximately a million copies, earning Trump and Schwartz each several million dollars.) Greenblatt also orders Schwartz to issue “a written statement retracting your defamatory statements,” and to offer written assurances that he will not “generate or disseminate” any further “baseless accusations” about Trump.
