Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter for Donald Trump’s ‘The Art of the Deal’ best-selling autobiography, has received a cease-and-desist letter from the real estate mogul’s lawyer Jason D. Greenblatt.
Schwartz said he got the letter this week asking him to apologize and return all proceeds from the book, reports The New York Times.
Recently, Schwartz told The New Yorker he felt remorse for portraying Trump positively in the book, as well as that his presidency could possibly “lead to the end of civilization,” says the Times.
“It’s nuts and completely indicative of who he is,” Schwartz said in an interview with MSNBC. “There’s no basis of anything legal. I suspect that Donald Trump called up his chief legal officer and said, ‘Go after that guy and do whatever you have to do.’”
