The guy who helped President Donald Trump write his seminal book, The Art of the Deal, said the former reality-TV star will soon leave the White House on his own accord.
In a series of tweets Wednesday, Tony Schwartz—who co-authored the 1987 book that helped define the real estate magnate’s public image—said he thought the walls were closing in on Trump and he would soon leave office in an attempt to save face.
Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal co-author, Tony Schwartz, is predicting that the president is getting ready to call it quits ― and that the resignation will happen soon.
He tweeted Wednesday:
The circle is closing at blinding speed. Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice.

For Americans who don’t support Trump—that’s a lot of folks, considering the president’s approval rating is hovering at about 37 percent—Schwartz warned that they have to keep up the pressure if they want the billionaire to resign. “Trump must be isolated. Resistance every day. The end is near but must keep pressure high,” he tweeted.
In follow-up tweets in response to questions, Schwartz predicted Trump would make a deal for immunity in the Russia investigation in exchange for his resignation.
“The Russia stuff will be huge,” he wrote. “He doesn’t want to go to jail.”
He also urged Trump’s opponents to keep up the pressure, and he slammed the president’s elder children
Schwartz has been predicting resignation as Trump’s endgame, making similar comments in May.
“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.
Despite authoring a book with Trump, Schwartz advised the campaign of 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for free.
“This is my penance for having created a man who has become a monster,” he said in September. “I’ve spent 30 years feeling bad about it.”
Schwartz also said he would donate his share of the profits from The Art Of The Deal to the National Immigration Law Center, an organization that helps low-income immigrants.
