"President Trump didn't write any of his books. Ghostwriters on all of them," author Tim O'Brien tweeted Tuesday.

O'Brien wrote the Trump biography "Trump Nation" and often appears in the media to discuss Trump.

Trump is credited as the author of more than a dozen books. Almost all of them acknowledge the use of a ghostwriter or co-author.

The president defended himself over spelling errors in his tweets on Tuesday, saying that he has "written many best selling books" and "somewhat [prides] myself on my ability to write."
