Schwartz said that he would be ‘amazed’ if Trump lasted a year in office, saying the president will resign before special counsel Robert Mueller acts on his Russia investigation.
In follow up tweets in response to questions, Schwartz predicted that Trump would make a deal for immunity in exchange for his resignation, adding that the ‘Russia stuff will be huge’.

‘Trump’s presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.
‘Trump must be isolated. Resistance every day. The end is near but must keep pressure high.’
‘Eric & Donald Trump Jr., dumber versions of their father. Ivanka Trump fake human and enabler. They all suffer from Stockholm Syndrome,’ he wrote.
He later deleted the tweet and explained: ‘Yesterday I criticized Trump’s children, and today deleted the tweet. I don’t know them & I want to keep my comments focused on Trump.’
‘I surely believe that at some point over the next period of time he’s going to have to figure out a way to resign,’ Schwartz told CNN at the time.
Trump himself hired Schwartz to co-write the memoir-cum-business guide, released in 1987.
A post on Schwartz’s Twitter feed reads: ‘I wrote the Art of the Deal. Donald Trump read it.’
As Trump’s approach to the White House began to pick up steam this year, Schwartz became more and more vocal in his opposition to the Republican.
Before the 2016 presidential election, he warned that warns that if Trump were given access to America’s nukes, he could cause Armageddon.
