Tony Schwartz: Trump Wants to Use the Next Terrorist Attack to Declare Martial Law

During Saturday’s “AM Joy” on MSNBC, Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter behind Donald Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal,” claimed the president wants to use the next terrorist event to declare martial law.

“[Trump]’s created that atmosphere of terror,” Schwartz argued. “What he’s really doing, what the bottom line is right now is as he tries to discredit the FBI and the Justice Department and he mobilizes the Republicans to go along with that, he is inexorably moving toward a police state. Let’s not kid ourselves.”

He continued, “He wants to go and get Erik Prince and put together a mercenary separate army. He wants to use the most available terrorist event to be able to declare martial law, to be able to put into effect a world in which he controls it completely. And then he has this little mafia family inside the White House that will run the game.”
