Tony Schwartz, one of the co-authors of The Art of the Deal, said that he believes President Trump’s faculties are diminishing and it is a major cause for concern.

“We are in a true emergency,” Schwartz said while on CNN, according to the New York Post. “And the accelerated rate at which his breakdown or decompensation is occurring is cause for us, and certainly for me, to come on to TV more often, to tweet more often.”

Schwartz feels like he can make this call because he had “spent an enormous time with [Trump] over a period of 18 months” and he had been a student of psychology for 25 years and spent a lot of time with psychologists.

“I believe the republic is in enormous risk that goes far beyond what most journalists are comfortable saying and what the general public, therefore — it doesn’t really fully understand,” he said, according to the New York Post.
