Donald Trump's Ghostwriter and a Poet Fighting Cancer

Hosted by  • 

When Tony Schwartz ghostwrote Donald Trump's book The Art of the Deal, he had no idea that his narrative would one day help propel Trump to a Presidential candidacy. Schwartz tells the New Yorker's Jane Mayer about his deep regret, and fear at the prospect of Trump becoming President. Plus, the satirical news columnist Andy Borowitz discusses the Republican National Convention, the poet Max Ritvo explains how poetry is helping him face terminal cancer, and a Chinese reporter explains why Trump might make democracy a harder sell in China.
