The Memo: GOP anger at Trump is building © Provided by The Hill The Memo: GOP anger at Trump is building The co-writer of President Trump's bestselling book "The Art of the Deal" predicted Thursday that Trump will resign before he is consumed by one of the scandals rocking the White House.

In an interview with CNN, Tony Schwartz said that Trump is in "pure terror" that the scandals surrounding his administration could boil over to impeachment, and will likely walk away.

"There is no right and wrong for Trump. There's winning and losing. And that's very different from right and wrong. Right now he's in pure terror that he is going to lose," Schwartz said.

"And by the way, he is going to lose."

Schwartz predicted that Trump will seek a way to turn resignation into victory.

"He wants to figure out a way - as he's done all his career - to turn a loss into a victory," the author said. "And so he will declare victory when he leaves."

Schwartz published "The Art of the Deal" in 1987 as a co-writer with Trump. Since then, the book has sold more than a million copies.
