For those concerned that there won’t be enough salacious gossip in the run up to the 2020 presidential election, fear not, a disgruntled Trump family member has a tell-all book due out in August.
Mary Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump’s brother, Fred Trump Jr., will reportedly release “Too Much And Never Enough” on Aug. 11, which is just before the Republican National Convention.
The book will detail “harrowing and salacious” stories about the president, according to Daily Beast — after all, how else would it sell?
Citing people with knowledge of the matter, Daily Beast said the book is expected to include conversations with President Trump’s sister, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry, that contain intimate and damning thoughts about the president.
As the news outlet reported, Mary Trump was the primary source behind a 2018 New York Times story about Trump’s “dubious tax schemes.”
More from Daily Beast:
One of the most explosive revelations Mary will detail in the book, according to people familiar with the matter, is how she played a critical role helping The New York Times print startling revelations about Trump’s taxes, including how he was involved in “fraudulent” tax schemes and had received more than $400 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire.
As she is set to outline in her book, Mary was a primary source for the paper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation, supplying Fred Trump Sr.’s tax returns and other highly confidential family financial documentation to the paper.
Fred Trump Jr., the firstborn son and one-time heir apparent to his father’s vast real estate empire, died in 1981 at the age of 42 from a heart attack — complications from alcoholism were a factor.
As he is blamed for pretty much everything bad in America, Trump will catch blame here too as the book is said to include allegations that he contributed to his brother’s death and neglected him at critical stages of his addiction.
“The bad blood between President Trump and his niece dates back 20 years to the fight over Fred Trump Sr.’s will and the actions he took to cut off financial and medical support for her brother’s ill child,” Daily Beast reported.
Mary and her brother, Fred the 3rd, filed a lawsuit contesting their grandfather’s will after Fred Trump Sr., passed away in 1999. The siblings alleged that the will had been “procured by fraud and undue influence” by Trump and his other siblings, resulting in a substantially smaller share for Fred Jr.’s heirs.
Trump told the New York Daily News in 2000 his father discounted Mary and Fred III’s inheritance because he had a “tremendous dislike” for their mother, Linda Clapp.
“I think he felt if it goes to the two children, it also maybe can go to the mother indirectly,” he said. “He felt the mother was the cause of some of Fred’s difficulty, and Fred had a difficult life.”
Mary Trump is not very active on Twitter, but according to the profile of an account under her name, she appears to be a raging liberal.
As seen above, the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement is supported, as it the LGBT community, as Trump details the “pronouns” she identifies by — a hip thing to do on the left these days — while sporting the rainbow flag.
