Trump ghostwriter predicts President will resign

TRUMP

NEW YORK: As a key Republican questions the President’s capacity to govern, the ghostwriter who penned Donald Trump’s 1987 memoir The Art of the Deal thinks he will quit before the end of his term.

Writer Tony Schwartz tweeted that “Trump is going to resign” before investigators probing alleged ties between the Republican’s campaign team and Russia “leave him no choice”.

“The circle is closing at blinding speed,” the author tweeted. “Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice.”

“Trump’s presidency is effectively over,” he said in a follow-up tweet. “Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.”

Meanwhile, Republican senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has questioned Trump’s capacity to govern.

“The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the ability or the competence that he needs to be successful,” said Corker, who Trump had considered for the job of secretary of state. Corker said Trump needed to make “radical changes.”

While writing Trump’s bestselling breakthrough memoir Schwartz spent 18 months with the billionaire tycoon.

He spoke out last year against the real estate mogul during the presidential campaign, telling The New Yorker that he put “lipstick on a pig.” “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.”
