"The Art of the Deal" made America see Trump as a charmer with an unfailing knack for business. Tony Schwartz helped create that myth -- and regrets it.
Donald Trump announced Friday that Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is his choice for his vice presidential running mate. As Trump narrowed in on his choice of Pence, the two men spent time at both Trump's golf resort in New Jersey in early July and at the Indiana governor's mansion this week. Trump also has considered former speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Army Gen. Michael Flynn.

He then broke ranks with most national security leaders in Washington when he became one of the earliest backers of Donald Trump. Now Flynn, 57, who has briefed Trump in person and penned memos for him, has emerged as more than a valued informal adviser -- he's a potential running mate. "If someone were to look it up right now, I'm a registered Democrat, and I'm OK with that," Flynn told Foreign Policy last year, adding he's "about as centrist as possible."
