President Donald Trump’s ghostwriter for “The Art of the Deal” interrupted his vacation to warn that the former reality TV star’s mental state appears to be dissolving before the public eye.

On Thursday morning, he issued another urgent warning based on the president’s recent behavior, which includes comparing himself to the “second coming” and declaring himself the “chosen one.”

“On vacation, but feel compelled to share this,” Schwartz tweeted. “Trump seems more unmoored from reality and more brazenly megalomaniacal than I have ever observed before. And it will definitely get worse.”

Trump has shrunk the White House entirely around himself: ‘It is a government of one’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has cleared out all the constraints in his White House, which he's running much like the Trump Organization.

The president has chased away four national security advisers, three chiefs of staff, three directors of oval office operations and five communications directors -- an unprecedented amount of turnover for a modern president — and finds himself surrounded by compliant staffers and aides, reported Politico.

“It is a government of one in the same way in which the Trump Organization was a company of one,” said one former senior administration official.
