President Trump is in the midst of a “significant meltdown,” according to Tony Schwartz, who co-authored “The Art of the Deal” with the businessman-turned-president.
“I think he’s reacting from a survival place,” Schwartz told Anderson Cooper on CNN’s “360,” adding, “He’s in pure defensive mode. I think that he’s being run by the part of his brain that’s reactive and impulsive, not capable of reflection.”
Speaking from his experience of spending hundreds of hours working alongside Trump on the book, Schwartz explained that Trump feels a “sense of siege” because “his sense of self-worth is so, so vulnerable that the series of things that have happened are overwhelming to him.”
On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to act as a special counsel in the Russian probe. Trump responded with a statement maintaining that the investigation will find “no collusion” between his 2016 campaign and “any foreign entity.”
“I look forward to this matter concluding quickly,” Trump said. “In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country.”
Meanwhile, Schwartz predicted that he believes Trump will eventually resign from his position.
