Who is Mary Trump and what did she write in her tell all book? – The Sun

PRESIDENT Donald Trump's 55-year-old niece's tell-all book is set to be released next week.

Mary Trump's new book, titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, claims that the President's father neglected, manipulated, and emotionally abused him.

How is Mary Trump related to Donald Trump?

Mary is the daughter of President Trump's late older brother, Fred Trump Jr – who passed away at the age of 42 in 1981 from a heart attack.

Fred's death came after his struggle with alcoholism.

In the book, Mary wrote: "Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence, and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father. I can’t let him destroy my country.”

Mary obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees from Tufts University and Columbia University.

She also earned another master's degree and a Ph.D at Adelphi University.

When is she releasing her tell all book?

Mary's book will be out on shelves on July 14.

Published by Simon & Schuster, the book is expected to discuss bombshell claims that Trump "suffered deprivations that would scar him for life" at the hands of his dad.

The book's original release date was set for July 28, but "high demand and extraordinary interest" prompted the date change.

Despite Trump's youngest brother Robert attempting to stop the book from being published, it is already listed as No. 4 on the Amazon bestseller non-fiction list as of July 7.

The Trump family had argued that the publication of the book would violate a non-disclosure agreement.

What has she said in the book?

In Mary's explosive new book, she claimed Donald Trump suffered emotional child abuse from his dad, who left him scarred for life.

In the book, Mary will maintain that "love meant nothing" to Fred Trump Sr, who "terrified" the young President.

Trump's niece has vowed she "had to take him down" with the tell-all book "spilling family secrets" prior to its early release, reported Axios.

"It wasn't enough for me to volunteer at an organization helping Syrian refugees. I had to take Donald down," she writes.

The book will claim that a two-year-old Trump was neglected and left with a "total dependence on a caregiver (Fred Sr) who also caused him terror" when his mom got sick.

According to the the Los Angeles Times, Mary Trump writes in the soon-to-be released book: "Honest work was never demanded of him, and no matter how badly he failed, he was rewarded in ways that are almost unfathomable.

"He continues to be protected from his own disasters in the White House.

"But now the stakes are far higher than they've ever been before; they are literally life and death. Unlike any previous time in his life, Donald's failings cannot be hidden or ignored because they threaten us all."

She claims that Trump's dad, Fred Trump Sr, neglected, manipulated, and emotionally abused him.

However, the allegations have been dismissed by Trump's press office.

Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews told the Sun: "Mary Trump and her book’s publisher may claim to be acting in the public interest, but this book is clearly in the author’s own financial self-interest.

"President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people – why speak out now?

"The President describes the relationship he had with his father as warm and said his father was very good to him. He said his father was loving and not at all hard on him as a child."

Trump's niece also attacked Trump's character and described him as his father's “monster—the only child of his who mattered to him."

She claimed Trump was "extremely vulnerable to manipulation by smarter, more powerful men" like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-Un, and Mitch McConnell.

Simon & Schuster leaked details from Mary's memoir, which claims that the Trump family's "financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms."

The book is hailed as a "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him."

What is her net worth?

Mary's net worth is unknown, however, in an interview with the New York Daily News 20 years ago, Trump's niece opened up about a family court battle over her Fred Trump Sr.’s will.

He had reportedly left around $100million to $300million behind.

After Mary and Fred III, her brother, found out they wouldn't receive much of Fred Sr's estate, the pair challenged the will.
