    US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump would make a poor intellectual competitor against Russian President Vladimir Putin, if elected president of the United States in 2016, co-author of Trump’s memoir, Tony Schwartz, told Sputnik on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik), Leandra Bernstein — Given the complexity of the current US-Russian relations and Trump’s personal qualities, he would match up "poorly" against Putin, Schwartz stated.

    "[Trump] is a man who has not got a great deal of emotional equanimity and he is easily provoked," Schwartz said.

    In July, Schwartz, who co-wrote Trump’s 1987 autobiography, ‘The Art of the Deal,’ issued a series of scathing personal critiques against the billionaire turned presidential candidate.

    In response to Schwartz’s public criticism, Trump issued a cease and desist order and threatened further legal action against his former ghost-writer.
