Mary Trump hails president-elect Joe Biden's victory, predicts 'meltdowns upon meltdowns' for uncle after loss
The long-standing Trump critic had warned that 'if he is afforded a second term, it would be the end of American democracy'
President-elect Joe Biden's victory over Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election has given America reason to step back and breathe. Biden's election brings new hope to the country that was under constant turmoil under Trump. Ever since the announcement that Biden will be the next president, critics of Trump are celebrating. Among them is Mary Trump, the president's niece who has been very critical of her powerful uncle. So much so that she even wrote a book titled 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man', which expanded on the Trump family dynamics and revealed details about financial dealings, including her role as the anonymous source who revealed the president's suspected tax fraud to The New York Times.
Mary in her book wrote that "if he is afforded a second term, it would be the end of American democracy." Her book always faced the threat of discontinuing publication especially since her uncle is a powerful man with powerful connections. She previously described his leadership as "dangerous" and said he is "utterly incapable of leading this country".
In the wake of Trump losing the election, she took to Twitter to share a very succinct message: "To America. Thanks, guys." She sported a Biden-Harris campaign hat and held up a glass of champagne to toast the victory.
In another post, she wrote: "Overwhelmed. Grateful. Relieved. We did it."

Earlier on Saturday, she had posted that the president would have a "temper tantrum" no matter who was declared the winner. In a piece in The Guardian, she wrote, "He's [Donald Trump] not going to concede, although who cares. What's worse is he's not going to engage in the normal activities that guarantee a peaceful transition. All he's got now is breaking stuff, and he's going to do that with a vengeance. I've always known how cruel he can be."
"He'll be having meltdowns upon meltdowns right now," she added. "What's interesting is that Donald has never won anything legitimately in his entire life, but because he has been so enabled by people along the way, he has never lost anything either."
Mary responded to reports on Thursday that Trump would run for president again in 2024 if he lost the election. During her appearance on 'The Dean Obeidallah Show', she said, "I honestly think that's a face-saving ploy. It's so absurd that he actually thinks he's gonna be able to run a campaign from prison.... Maybe he could. I don't know."
Mary's followers thanked her for her courage and contribution to the election by spreading awareness about her uncle. "Yes - her insights, wisdom and exposure of the frauds were valuable. I hope her litigation for being defrauded of her grandfather's estate is swift and successful," one tweeted.

"And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts Mary. You’re a true patriot and our deep gratitude goes to you. God bless you! May your future continue to be so bright and may the light always shine upon you," another added. "4 years of sleepless night. I can only imagine yours. Thank you, Mary. Thank you for your courage," another follower of her concurred.

And lastly, before she retired for the night, Mary tweeted, "Sleep well, everybody. Because, finally, we can. Respect. #BidenHarris2020."
