Mary Trump to release incendiary memoir

Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, is set to release a tell-all book with Simon and Schuster later this year. Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man is expected to divulge a number of damaging stories about the current President of the United States.

Mary Trump, a 55-year-old clinical psychologist, is expected to announce in the book that she was a primary source in a New York Times investigation into Mr Trump’s finances. She is understood to have provided journalists with confidential tax documents that informed their research.

The final investigative article led to three journalists from the paper winning the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism.

Ms Trump, who is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr. (the president’s older brother), has kept mostly out of the public eye, apart from a public family feud over the will of Trump’s father – and her grandfather – Fred Trump Sr

Ms Trump’s book will include new details about the president regarding his relationship with his father and brother, including the way Trump ‘dismissed and derided’ his father while Fred Trump Sr. suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.

Although the president has had a number of unflattering books written about him during the first term of his presidency, this is the first time the writing has come from a member of his own family.

A number of these books have also been published by Simon and Schuster, including Fear: Trump in the White House, by famous political writer Bob Woodward, and Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House, by Omarosa Manigault Newman.

They will also publish The Room Where It Happened, the memoir by John Bolton, the former National Security Advisor of the United States. It is currently on hold due to content disputes over what the Trump administration contends is classified information.

Ms. Trump’s book is expected to cause trouble for the president’s re-election campaign, which is already affected by high rates of coronavirus in the United States, and the Black Lives Matter protests taking place across the country.

The book is slated for release next month, and is available for pre-order here.
