Donald Trump in Twitter War with The Art of the Deal Ghostwriter
Posted on September 10, 2016
Donald Trump is in a Twitter feud with his former ghostwriter Tony Schwartz. Schwartz is listed as a co-writer on Trump's bestseller The Art of the Deal. We reported earlier that Schwartz thinks a President Trump will lead to the end of civilization. Now Trump and Schwartz are battling it out on Twitter.
In tweets over the last 24 hours Trump has called Swartz a "hostile basket case," "dummy writer" and an "irrelevant dope." Trump also tweeted, "I havn't (sic) seen @tonyschwartz in many years, he hardly knows me. Never liked his style." Trump also claims that Schwartz has been after him to write a second book for years.
Dummy writer @tonyschwartz, who wanted to do a second book with me for years (I said no), is now a hostile basket case who feels jilted!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2016
Schwartz denies approaching Trump to write a second book. He says, "I never approached you to do 2nd book. You came to me & I said no. You felt jilted, not me."
Will correct every lie you say @realDonaldTrump. I never approached you to do 2nd book. You came to me & I said no. You felt jilted, not me— Tony Schwartz (@tonyschwartz) September 10, 2016
Schwartz also says, "To undecided voters: Trump wants to be Putin, a despot & dictator. The world may not recover. Save your children and grandchildren."
We certainly don't see these two collaborating on a new book in the future.
