Donald Trump‘s niece has seemingly blown the lid off of some MAJOR family secrets!
In her new biography/autobiography, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, Mary L. Trump revealed an inside look into the President’s abusive relationship with his father, allegations that he paid a friend to take the SATs for him, and so much more.
In case you’re not caught up on the drama happening behind the scenes of the book’s release, here’s a refresher. The publisher, Simon & Schuster, announced recently that the memoir would be released two weeks early on July 14 instead of July 28 thanks to “high demand and extraordinary interest,” which has landed it in the number one spot on the Amazon bestseller list.
However, it is currently the subject of a legal dispute in New York with a hearing coming up this week. According to members of the Trump family, Mary signed a non-disclosure agreement barring her from publishing any kind of book.
This legal document was supposedly signed by Mary 20 years ago to settle a dispute regarding the estate of Fred Trump Sr., her grandfather. Family members argue this should prevent her from writing any sort of Trump biography, but clearly she disagrees. Mary alleged in the lawsuit previously that the family took advantage of Fred Sr. to cut her and her brother, Fred Trump III, out of the will upon his death.
So, now we can move onto the bombshells waiting to be uncovered in her book…
Mental Illness Claims
Mary, who holds a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies, shares the 74-year-old POTUS “‘meets the criteria for antisocial personality disorder, which in its most severe form is generally considered sociopathy, but can also refer to chronic criminality, arrogance, and disregard for others.”
She also writes “Donald may also meet some of the criteria for dependent personality disorder,” which includes behavior such as discomfort when being alone, inability to take responsibility for actions, and going to extreme lengths to gather support from others. Sharing about his supposed sleep disorder, brought on by a Diet Coke addiction, she adds she has “no problem” calling out her uncle as a narcissist:
“He is alleged to drink upward of 12 Diet Cokes a day and sleeps very little. Does he suffer from substance (in this case caffeine) induced sleep disorder? He has a horrible diet and does not exercise, which may contribute to or exacerbate his other possible disorders.”
In another chapter, Mary claims her uncle ogled her when she was 29-years-old in a swimsuit at Mar-a-Lago in Florida, with him allegedly saying:
“Holy s**t, Mary, you’re stacked!”
Considering the things he’s said about his own daughter, we aren’t too surprised by that…
According to her, “taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged” by the “toxic” family and “cheating is a way of life.” Both of these she was taught during her youth when she spent time at her grandparents’ home in Queens, New York.
A Victim Of Abuse
The author labels her grandfather as a “high functioning sociopath,” and after his wife became sick when Donald was just two, he isolated himself from his own children:
“Donald’s mother became ill when he was two and a half, suddenly depriving him of his main source of comfort and human contact. His father, Fred, became his only available parent. But Fred firmly believed that dealing with young children was not his duty, and kept to his twelve-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week job at Trump Management, as if his children could look after themselves.”
The passage continues, citing the emotional abuse Donnie suffered:
“From the beginning, Fred’s self-interest skewed his priorities and his care of children reflected his own needs, not theirs. He could not empathize with Donald’s plight, so his son’s fears and longings went unsoothed.
Love meant nothing to Fred; he expected obedience, that was all. Over time, Donald became afraid that asking for comfort or attention would provoke his father’s anger or indifference when Donald was most vulnerable.
That Fred would become the primary source of Donald’s solace when he was much more likely to be a source of fear or rejection put Donald in an intolerable position: total dependence on a caregiver who also caused him terror. Donald suffered deprivations that would scar him for life.“
In another section of the book, Trump describes how she and Donald’s eldest sister Maryanne initially scoffed at his desire to run for President:
“When Donald announced his run for the presidency on June 16, 2015 I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t think Donald took it seriously. He simply wanted the free publicity for his brand. When his poll numbers started to rise he may have received tacit assurances from Russian President Vladimir Putin that Russia would do everything it could to swing the election in his favor, the appeal of winning grew.”
“He’s a clown’, my aunt Maryanne said during one of our regular lunches at the time. ”This will never happen”. I agreed. ‘Does anybody even believe the bulls**t that he’s a self-made man?’ I asked ‘Well,’ Maryanne said, dry as the Saharan, ‘he has had five bankruptcies.’”
Maryanne, who is a Catholic since her conversion 50 years ago, apparently became enraged when her brother received endorsements from evangelical pastors such as Jerry Falwell Jr., raging:
“What the f**k is wrong with them? The only time Donald went to church is when the cameras were there. It’s mind boggling. He has no principles. None!”
Fake SATs & Cheating In School?
His sister Maryanne also had allegedly been doing Donald’s homework in school, but since she could not take tests for him, his grade point average was “far from the top of the class,” and he was worried about getting admitted to the University of Pennsylvania‘s prestigious Wharton School of Business.
Mary claims her uncle enlisted the help of a friend named Joe Shapiro, a “smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker,” to take the SATs for him. With no ID checks, Mary says Shapiro took the test, and Donald “paid his buddy well.”
In 1966, after two years, he transferred from Fordham University in New York to the University of Pennsylvania, but not before he asked his late brother Fred Trump Jr. (Mary’s father) to speak with James Nolan, a friend of his who worked in the university’s admissions office.
Speaking of Fred Jr., Maryanne was angered when Donald used their late brother’s death for “political purposes” when speaking about the opioid crisis. Mary’s father passed away in 1981 after struggling with alcoholism and addiction throughout his life.
Mary recalls her aunt telling her:
“He’s using your father’s memory for political purposes, and that’s a sin, especially since Freddy should have been the star of the family.”
Simon & Schuster have already revealed other details from the book, including how in the Trump family, “financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms.”
The book will also describe how “a ‘killer’ instinct is revered, while qualities such as empathy, kindness, and expertise are punished.”
Additionally, we can likely expect more to come out of the legal battle surrounding this book, especially since it is expected to reveal that Mary was the primary anonymous source of the New York Times‘ Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into the President’s tax history, which was published in October 2018.
As you’ll recall, this report found that the father of five had received over $400 million (in today’s dollars) from his father’s real estate empire, and had been involved in “fraudulent” tax schemes, ultimately tearing down his image as a self-made man.
