Art of the Deal Writer Tony Schwartz: Trump is ‘Incapable of Reading a Book, Much Less Writing One’

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump — whose name appears on the cover as author or co-author of 19 books — took to Twitter to boast about his literary prowess.

But one of his co-authors made it clear: Donald Trump is no Hemingway.

In a tweet responding to Trump’s brag, Tony Schwartz — co-author of Trump’s most famous book, the 1987 bestseller The Art of The Deal — slammed the president’s writing ability. And, for that matter, his reading ability as well.

“Trump’s tweet that he has “written” bestselling books is one more deceit & delusion,” Schwartz wrote. “He is incapable of reading a book, much less writing one.”

Schwartz has attained notoriety over the past few years as a Trump analyst of sorts. His cable news hits diagnosing the president’s mental state have gained him a sizable following.
