The co-author of Trump’s Art of the Deal slaps the president in an interview about Mary Trump’s book
Following the publication of the bomb book written by Donald Trump’s niece – Mary Trump – and for her calls to resign the President, Trump’s Art of the Deal co-author gave his perspective on the Trump family in a wonderful interview.
Speaking to MNSBC’s “The Beat,” Tony Schwartz supported Mary Trump’s claims that her uncle is a psychopath and sociopath who is not fit to lead, saying that the way his father raised him made him emotionless.
“I feel a great affinity with Mary Trump,” Schwartz said in the televised interview. “I’ve observed Trump almost all my adult life – that he is indeed a psychopath or a sociopath.
“It is fascinating to see her confirm and deepen many of the observations I have made over the past four years and most recently when I wrote of him as ‘The Psychopath in chief’.

“This is a man, as she says, without empathy and without conscience – which makes him astonishingly dangerous,” said Schwartz.
Schwartz then discussed Trump’s younger years and the damage done by his father and Mary Trump’s grandfather – Fred Trump – who died in 1999 at the age of 93.
“You actually have four generations – at least four generations – of sociopaths in the Trump family,” said Schwartz.
Tony Schwartz’s comments came during an interview during an MSNBC that viewed Mary Trump’s comments following the publication of her comprehensive book about her uncle’s upbringing
His grandfather, Frederick Trump, owned whore houses. His father, Fred Trump – Mary Trump makes it very clear that he was a man without consciousness or empathy. That’s Trump himself, and now he’s got hostages on his kids that seem to have almost exactly the same traits – it’s a generational tragedy. ‘
When asked how Fred Trump affected the 45th President of the United States, Schwartz agreed with Mary Trump that he severely limited his range of human emotions that were accessible to him.
Certain feelings were not allowed. Sadness, the impulse to be nice, the impulse to be generous, “said Mary Trump in an interview earlier this week. “My grandfather thought that was unnecessary or inhuman.”

This, Schwartz said, has been passed down to Trump’s three own children, most notably Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump, and Ivanka Trump.
“You can tell by the three oldest children – their inability to empathize – the very limited range of emotions they display and the inauthenticity you feel – especially Ivanka,” Schwartz said.
“I don’t know if she’s most affected, all three have them – but she’s certainly been profoundly affected.”

Schwartz says Trump’s lack of empathy is dangerous to the public, saying that Trumps’ private life impact on him and his children has a “treacherous” impact on the public.
“This is a portrait of a trauma and that in itself is a huge contribution to the public because that experience that Trump children have is on a spectrum and almost all children experience trauma and it is fundamentally ignored in our culture.” he said.
“We don’t pay much attention to people’s internal lives and the effect of their early life experiences – and you can see the insidious impact on what happens inside Donald Trump in how he behaves on the outside.”
Mary Trump called on her uncle to step down because she breaks her silence after publishing a memoir – ‘Too Much and Never Enough’ – in which she describes him as a ‘sociopath’
Tony Schwartz was Donald Trump’s ghost writer when he wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ released in 1987 – part memoir, part business advice book
The Art of the Deal co-author said he was less surprised by the timing of the release of Mary Trump’s new book, and more surprised that she came out with the book at all – and her subsequent comments.
“If I was surprised by anything, it would surprise me that she comes out at all,” said Schwartz. “No other Trump family member has stepped forward to say one negative word about him.”
On Tuesday, Mary Trump called on her uncle to resign because she broke her silence after publishing a memoir describing him as a “sociopath.”

“Quitting,” Mary Trump replied ABC news chief anchor George Stephanopoulos asked what message she would have for her uncle if she were in the Oval Office.
She said that after being “perverted” by the deep-seated “family problems”, her uncle was destined to become a man “utterly incapable of leading this land, and it is dangerous to let him do it “.
“I saw firsthand what focusing on the wrong things, raising the wrong people can do – the additional damage that can be caused by letting someone live their life without accountability,” she said. “And it is striking to see that it is now continuing on a much larger scale.”

In the interview, Mary Trump also recalled a visit to her uncle in the Oval Office just months after he was initiated.
“He seemed tense from the pressure … and I remember thinking,” He seems tired. He looks like this is not what he signed up for, “she said.
A clip of the interview was published Tuesday and fully published on Wednesday, and it was the author’s first time people had heard about life in the Trump family themselves.
It comes after New York State Supreme Court Justice Hal Greenwald stopped the Trump family’s attempt to silence Mary Trump from talking about her book ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’ , which was released on Tuesday.
It is already at the top of Amazon.com’s bestseller list, and the publisher sent copies in advance to several newscasts, including DailyMail.com.
