It is the first of the Trump clan to also challenge the American president head-on. Mary L. Trump, the White House tenant's only niece, is about to publish her memoirs, editor Simon & Schuster confirmed. Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man (French version) : Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the Most Dangerous Man in the World
Mary Trump, 55, is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr, the older brother of the Republican billionaire, who died in 1981 at the age of 42 from alcoholism. In this 240-page book, she recounts events she witnessed in her grandparents' house in New York, where the five children of Fred and Mary Anne Trump grew up. "It describes a nightmare of trauma, destructive relationships, and a tragic mixture of neglect and abuse," says the publishing house.
Specialist in clinical psychology
Mary Trump, a specialist in clinical psychology, says that the president "rejected and ridiculed" his father, of whom he was the favorite son, when he started suffering from Alzheimer's disease. She explains "how particular events and family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office", including "the strange and dangerous relationship" between Fred Trump, who died in 1999, and his first two sons, Fred Jr and Donald.
"She is the only one who can tell this fascinating and disturbing saga, not only because of her proximity to the subject but also because she is the only Trump ready to tell the truth about one of the most powerful and dysfunctional families of the world, ”says the editor.
New York Times source on Trump's finances
According to the news site Daily Beast , which announced the book's release on Sunday, Mary Trump should also reveal that she is the main source of a major investigation into Donald Trump's finances published by the New York Times in late 2018. Investigation, which won a daily Pulitzer Prize, says the president received the equivalent of $ 400 million today, inherited from his father's real estate empire, largely through fraudulent financial schemes .
So far, Mary Trump has managed to escape the spotlight. Almost nothing online, except for a recently deleted LinkedIn profile, and a Twitter account that seems to have been hers since 2015, via which she posted her support for Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.
