Mary Trump book paints a harsh portrait of her uncle, the president

Due to the ongoing legal battle, Mary Trump is unable to comment on the book. But so, she reportedly argues, was the relationship between Donald Trump himself and his father Fred, who allegedly "expected obedience" and apparently was not exactly a love-sharing person.

The decision came after the president's brother, Robert Trump, filed a lawsuit seeking a preliminary injunction and temporary restraining order to prevent the book from going public, claiming the author is barred from writing about private family affairs due to a non-disclosure agreement she signed as part of a settlement over her inheritance.

The move comes after a NY appellate judge on Wednesday reversed a lower court judge's decision that halted the publication.

Donald Trump suffered emotional abuse at the hands of his father, according to a bombshell new book written by his niece.


In her book, Mary Trump claims Fred "destroyed" a young Donald Trump by targeting his "ability to develop and experience the entire spectrum of human emotion", according to the Washington Post, which acquired a copy ahead of its release next week.

Mary Trump, a licensed clinical psychologist, writes that she voted for Hillary Clinton, and didn't attend Trump's election night party in 2016 because she "wouldn't be able to contain my euphoria when Clinton's victory was announced, and I didn't want to be rude".

President Donald Trump cheated on his SATs as a high school student in Queens, according to Mary Trump's forthcoming book.

The memoir is still the subject of a legal dispute between Mary and the Trump family and a hearing is scheduled for Thursday before a judge in Dutchess County, north of New York City.


Simon & Schuster also published the back cover of the book for the first time on Monday. "He continues to be protected from his own disasters in the White House", writes Mary Trump, the daughter of the president's eldest brother, Fred.

In late June, a judge refused to block the release of Bolton's book, titled "The Room Where It Happened", saying it was too late for the restraining order sought by the Trump administration.

So far, the Trump book case involves more than a dozen lawyers, few of whom have said anything publicly except for Ted Boutrous, Mary Trump's lawyer.

The New York Times in 2019 cited her as a major source in debunking Donald Trump's claims that his wealth was self-made.


Trump's sister allegedly called him a clown, mocked his presidential run, and said he only goes to church for PR purposes.
