First published in 1987, Trump: The Art of The Deal has long been an important part of President Donald Trump's image as a successful businessman.

But this weekend, an investigative report published by The New York Times exploring the President's tax returns has brought that image into question. The report details how President Trump's businesses have claimed hundreds of millions of dollars in losses over the years.

Today on the show, Stacey talks to Tony Schwartz, co-author of Trump: The Art of The Deal, about the New York Times report and what it was like to work alongside the President.
