'Art Of The Deal' ghostwriter predicts President Trump will not finish his first year in office




 

Tony Schwartz, co-author of Donald Trump's 'The Art of the Deal,' still says that President Trump will not finish his first year in office.

"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 tweeted on Thursday.

He made his original prediction for Trump's early departure back in August and also via Twitter.

"The circle is closing at blinding speed. Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice," Schwartz wrote at the time.

"Trump's presidency is effectively over," he added. "Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner."

"The snowball is beginning to gather momentum as it comes down the mountain. It reminds me a lot of Watergate and the last days of Nixon…He's put himself in an isolated, no-win position. The level of his destructiveness is staggering," Schwartz told CNN's Anderson Cooper the following day.

The writer's most recent comment followed a day of alarming accounts of how some close to the president view his probable longevity in office.

Vanity Fair reported that, according to two inside sources, former chief strategist Steve Bannon "told Trump that the risk to his presidency wasn't impeachment, but the 25th Amendment-the provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can vote to remove the president."

"According to a source, Bannon has told people he thinks Trump has only a 30 percent chance of making it the full term," the publication also wrote.
