President Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, is reportedly working with the media to release a tell-all book on the mega-wealthy Trump dynasty, according to The Western Journal.
According to The Daily Beast, the book is to be titled: “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.”
The book will allegedly detail how Mary, Trump’s niece, the daughter of his deceased brother, Fred Trump Jr., worked with the The New York Times on a 2018 report claiming that President Trump engaged in “fraudulent” tax schemes in the 1990s.
Her publisher suggested that the book was filled “harrowing and salacious,” stories about President Trump, including some that have to do with the death of his brother, Fred Trump Jr.
“Details of the book are being closely guarded by its publisher, Simon & Schuster, but The Daily Beast has learned that Mary plans to include conversations with Trump’s sister, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry, that contain intimate and damning thoughts about her brother, according to people with knowledge of the matter,” the publication reported.
The book’s expected release date is July 28, mere weeks before the Republican National Convention.
The president has spoken fondly of his brother, Fred Trump Jr., who died at the age of 42 due to a heart attack that the family relates to his alcoholism, according to The Washington Post.
He did admit to feeling regretful about trying to get Fred to join the family real estate business.
In 2019, Trump said in an interview “I do regret having put pressure on him.”
“It was just not his thing. … I think the mistake that we made was we assumed that everybody would like it. That would be the biggest mistake. … There was sort of a double pressure put on him” by Donald Trump and the men’s father, Fred Trump Sr.
“Given this family, it would be utterly naive to say it has nothing to do with money. But for both me and my brother, it has much more to do with that our father [Fred Jr.] be recognized,” she said. “He existed, he lived, he was their oldest son.”
“I think he felt if it goes to the two children, it also maybe can go to the mother indirectly. He felt the mother was the cause of some of Fred’s difficulty, and Fred had a difficult life,” Donald Trump in the deposition, according to the Daily News.
Gray Lady’s reporting on the publication of Mary Trump’s book:
“A niece of President Trump will divulge a series of damaging stories about him in an upcoming book, the first time that the president could be forced to grapple with unflattering revelations by a member of his own family.”
Commentary and Opinion from The Western Journal:
Meanwhile, Mary Trump hasn’t sought the spotlight but did make a comment to the New York Daily News when her brother, Fred Trump 3rd, was involved in a bitter court fight over the will of Fred Trump Sr. in 2000
The paper described her as “incensed” that Donald Trump terminated the health insurance of Fred Trump 3rd over the lawsuit.
In a deposition in the lawsuit, Donald Trump said Fred Sr. had a “tremendous dislike” for Fred Jr.’s wife, the mother of both Fred 3rd and Mary.
So clearly we have animus. We’ll also know a great deal more about what role she played in the 2018 New York Times piece that accused the president, along with his siblings, of engineering “tax dodges” to disguise large monetary gifts from their parents.
