Mary Trump, niece of Donald Trump, makes the psychological analysis of her uncle in a book to be published. She describes him as a narcissistic liar.
The release of the book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” (in French) , was brought forward to July 14. Less than four months before the presidential election, he is already number 1 in book sales on Amazon, just ahead of the book by ex-security adviser John Bolton, published in June, also very critical of Donald Trump.
Presented by the editor Simon & Schuster as a revelation book about three months before the presidential election, the work sparked a legal battle: a brother of Donald Trump, Robert, tried, in vain, to block him in court. Mary Trump, a psychologist, is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president’s older brother, who died in 1981 at the age of 42, from his alcoholism. In her 240-page book, this 55-year-old woman, who has long since broken with her uncle who became president, mixes “family history and psychological analysis of her uncle”, according to the “Washington Post”.
A family climate of “lust, betrayals and fratricidal tensions”
She explains in particular how her father was despised and “mocked” by her “domineering” grandfather, Fred Sr. And how Donald Trump, seven years younger than Fred Junior, learned “to lie to enhance himself” after having witnessed the humiliation suffered by his seven-year-old elder. According to the New York Times, the president’s niece describes a family climate of “lust, betrayals and fratricidal tensions” to explain how Donald Trump acquired “crooked behaviors”. “Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors often so inexplicable that to establish a complete diagnosis would require a whole battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he will never pass,” she writes, according to the New York daily.
She also claims that the former New York real estate tycoon paid someone to take the American SAT university admission tests in his place, according to the “New York Times”, which does not say if it provides evidence. “Donald, following the example of my grandfather and with the complicity, the silence and the inaction of his brothers and sisters, destroyed my father. I can’t let him destroy my country, ”writes the niece, quoted by CNN.
