Art of the Deal Writer Buries Trump Over Report on His Finances: Would Be Fine if They ‘Took the Book Out of Print’


After collaborating with President Donald Trump on the 1987 bestseller The Art of the Deal, writer Tony Schwartz has — in recent years — become one of the commander-in-chief’s fiercest critics. On Wednesday, Schwartz couldn’t make it any clearer just how much he’d like to distance himself from his book.

In a Wednesday Tweet, Schwartz raged — amid the New York Times report on the President’s massive financial losses during the 80s and 90s. And he said that he wouldn’t mind if The Art of the Deal disappeared from bookstore shelves.

“Given the Times report on Trump’s staggering losses, I’d be fine if Random House simply took the book out of print,” Schwartz wrote. “Or recategorized it as fiction.”
