Trump went to watch a movie instead of saying goodbye to brother Fred who died alone in hospital, niece claims
Mary Trump's book 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’ is letting out many skeletons in the president's cupboard
A new book by Donald Trump’s niece has claimed that the president gave preference to a movie over his alcoholic brother who died alone in the hospital. The explosive tell-all by Mary Trump claims that Donald’s brother Fred Trump Jr was sent to the hospital alone by his family the night he died in 1981.
According to the book -- ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’ -- Fred died at the age of 42 alone in hospital from an alcohol-induced heart attack, while his brother went to watch a movie. In her book, Mary has also claimed that Fred Jr, a TWA pilot, suffered abuse at the hands of his father Fred Trump Sr, who once shouted, “Donald is worth ten of you,” at him while a group of employees looked on.
The excerpts of the book have been seen by The New York Times and it has reported that Mary in her book shared that Trump's sister Maryanne Trump Barry,a retired federal appeals court judge, had deep reservations about the 74-year-old's decision to run for president. She even said in 2015 that his brother "is a clown — this will never happen" after Donald announced that he was running for the office. Not only this, according to the book, Maryanne was also shocked to see evangelical Christians’ support for his brother. “The only time Donald went to church was when the cameras were there. It’s mind-boggling. But that’s all about his base. He has no principles. None!” she said as quoted by Mary in the book.
It has been said that Trump tried to block the release of the explosive book claiming its contents breach a confidentiality agreement Mary signed to settle a dispute over a family will 20 years ago. However, his attempt failed as a judge did not block the book’s release and it is scheduled to hit the racks on July 14, The Metro reported.
Mary is reportedly the first member of the Trump family to write a book on Trump and said she decided to do that because the Republican leader, according to her publisher, Simon & Schuster, “now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric”. In her tell-all family memoir, Mary has also revealed a shocking incident where Donald paid someone else to take a precollegiate test, the SAT, on his behalf. The score earned by that someone helped her uncle to get a seat in Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton business school.
The author who is also a clinical psychologist has insisted that Donald has all nine clinical criteria for being a narcissist. But she added that even that label was not enough to capture her uncle’s full array of psychological troubles. “The fact is Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for,” Mary said, who later explained, “Donald has been institutionalized for most of his adult life, so there is no way to know how he would thrive, or even survive, on his own in the real world.”
