‘Art of the Deal’ writer wants publisher to ‘recategorize it as fiction’ — or take the book out of print
Tony Schwartz co-wrote the 1987 book 'The Art of the Deal' with Donald Trump

The co-author of 1987 bestselling book Trump: The Art of the Deal hilariously mocked President Donald Trump after the bombshell report that the president lost money the year the book was authored.


Tony Schwartz was credited as co-author of the book, though most analysts believe he wrote it, especially after Twitter has revealed Trump to be only semi-literate.

"Given The Times report on Trump's staggering losses, I'd be fine if Random House simply took the book out of print," Schwartz said, referring to the book's publisher.

"Or recategorized it as fiction," he added.
