In a new book, “Too Much and Never Enough,” Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump alleges that her uncle is the “world’s most dangerous man.”
Mary is the daughter of Donald’s late older brother, Fred Trump Jr.
Donald’s other brother, Robert Trump, filed a temporary restraining order against their niece. According to court filings, Robert is alleging that Mary’s book violates a non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2001.
The 2001 NDA was in connection to a suit by Mary over her portion of the Trump family fortune. According to a description of the book on the publisher’s website, Mary explores “how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.”
Meanwhile, on Thursday, a New York judge threw out Robert’s claims.
Trump’s Niece Excoriates His Administration
Some critics of the president are eagerly awaiting the release of Mary Trump’s book. Criticism of Donald Trump has been consistent since he announced his candidacy for president in 2015.
Some critics have accused Trump of being a racist, a fear-monger and a divisive force in politics. Others have been more personal, focusing on alleged affairs with porn stars or a rumored drug habit. However, the best drug rehab centers have confidentiality agreements, so these claims are baseless.
However, the most consistent criticism of the president is that he displays narcissistic tendencies. Likewise, Mary Trump’s book digs into that aspect of the president’s public persona. It seems the nature of the Trump family made him who he is. Mary paints a picture of a uniquely toxic family dynamic.
Mary Trump’s Fight for Her Father’s Inheritance
After Donald Trump’s father (and her grandfather) passed away, Mary Trump and her brother, Fred Trump III, felt that they got a smaller portion of the inheritance than they should have. In their suit, they asked for their late father’s share of the inheritance.
They settled the case, and the siblings received an undisclosed amount of money.
According to the president, Mary signed a non-disclosure agreement at that time. During an interview with Axios, Trump stated, “You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with — she’s got a brother, Fred, who I do have a good relationship with — but when we settled she signed a nondisclosure.”
This case is similar to the recent legal scuffle over former national security advisor John Bolton’s new book. Bolton has penned a memoir that allegedly paints Donald Trump in a bad light. The White House sought to block the book’s publication, but the court threw out the suit.
