Co-author of ‘The Art of the Deal’ deeply remorseful for his role in promoting Trump’s image.
Throughout his presidential campaign Donald Trump has waved around his book The Art of the Deal to bolster his image as a smooth negotiator and skilled leader.
Now Tony Schwartz—the man who says he actually wrote the book and is listed as its coauthor—is publicly expressing remorse for promoting the image of a man he describes as a ‘sociopath’.
‘I put lipstick on a pig’ he told Jane Mayer – writing for The New Yorker.
‘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’.
