According To Trump's Former Ghostwriter, The President Will Be Stepping Down Soon

In 1987, Donald Trump published the memoir/business-advice book, 'The Art of the Deal'. The New York Times number-one bestselling book was ghostwritten by Tony Schwartz.

The president's former ghostwriter has been quiet for a long time, but he recently came forward to say that he believes Trump plans to resign - soon.

Schwartz says he expects Trump to step down before 2018. The writer spent a lot of time with Trump when penning the memoir in 1987, and he's not surprised by what he considers Trump's seemingly self-destructive behavior.

"When [Trump] feels aggrieved, he reacts impulsively and defensively, constructing a self-justifying story that doesn’t depend on facts and always directs the blame to others," Schwartz wrote in May in an article for the Washington Post.

Schwartz has suggested that Trump would be out of office before the year was out. He's even advised Mr. Trump to resign. The sentiments were repeated by a recent article in Vanity Fair, in which they claim even Trump's former White House Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, said Trump has 'just a 30 percent chance of finishing out his term'.

Bets are on the 25th Amendment being behind Trump's departure from the Oval Office. The amendment allows the Vice President, Congress or president's cabinet to remove a president if they believe he is incapacitated.

If enough people call his stability into question, Trump could be ousted. Impeachment hearings aren't necessary.

This would naturally be unprecedented, but it's possible. For some who truly despise the POTUS and want to see him removed from office, hope springs eternal. Some people would even argue that, in Trump's case, it's inevitable. Schwartz is one of those people.

On Thursday, the author tweeted, "I still believe (and pray) Trump will resign by year end to avoid worse humiliation - e.g. Indictment by Mueller, or 25th amendment removal."

Schwartz has been a critic of Trump throughout the campaign. When Trump announced that he was running for president, he said, “We need a leader that wrote ‘The Art of the Deal.’”

Schwartz tweeted, "Many thanks Donald Trump for suggesting I run for President, based on the fact that I wrote ‘The Art of the Deal.’”

The writer told Vanity Fair in an interview in 2016 that he regrets working on the book that painted Trump in a positive light.

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said.

“I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.... 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.”

The ghostwriter says that just before Trump won the GOP nomination, he got a call from the candidate.

“I just want to tell you that I think you’re very disloyal,” he says Trump told him as he berated him for the Vanity Fair interview.
