Meet Mary Trump, the president's niece and Hillary Clinton supporter who's writing a tell-all book about POTUS
In the book called, 'Too Much And Never Enough,' Mary L Trump, daughter of Fred Trump Jr, reveals that she was the primary source behind the New York Times' explosive piece on Trump’s taxes
Although Mary Trump, the daughter of President Donald Trump's deceased brother is all set to become the first member of the Trump family to publish a tell-all book about the POTUS on August 11, just weeks before the Republican National Convention, has not been in the limelight or given any public interviews since her uncle got into the Oval Office, she had a fair bit to say about his presidential win back in 2016, calling it “one of the worst nights" of her life.
In the book called, 'Too Much And Never Enough,' Mary L Trump, daughter of Fred Trump Jr and the eldest grandchild of Fred Trump Sr, reveals that she was the primary source behind the New York Times' explosive piece on Trump’s taxes, including how he inherited more than $400 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire and was involved in “fraudulent” tax schemes. Mary also alleges in the book that the president and his father contributed to her father’s descent into alcoholism which led to his death from a heart attack in 1981; he was just 42. She claimed that both of them neglected her father at critical stages of his addiction.
The only personal details available about Mary are from her social media pages, which are public. According to her Linkedin profile, she became a certified professional life coach, after graduating from Tufts University with a bachelor’s degree in English Literature. She also has a master’s degree in English Literature at Columbia University. In addition, she has a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Adelphi University and earned her PhD in clinical psychology at Adelphi.
She was a doctoral student at Adelphi’s Derner Institute for Advanced Psychological Studies in 2002, according to the book, “Diagnosis: Schizophrenia. A Comprehensive Resource for Patients, Families, and Helping Professionals,” which she contributed to. Mary is currently the chief executive officer of The Trump Coaching Group, a New York-based life coaching company she established in 2012. She previously studied at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching in 2011. She has also owned and operated several businesses in New York and New England, including a marina, an import company. Trump's niece was, not unlike him, was also involved in real estate at one point.
According to her Twitter profile, she was an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton back in 2016. After the former presidential candidate's defeat in the last election cycle, Mary acknowledged her uncle's win by calling November 9, 2016, “One of the worst nights of my life." In the same tweet, she added: "Utterly horrifying. What has happened to our country?” In another tweet that same night she wrote, “James Comey should be in jail.”
Even after Clinton's loss, Mary rallied behind her. “What a tragedy. I feel like that lost my country tonight," she said, adding, “Hillary Clinton is an extraordinary human being and public servant. That she lost to this is unspeakable.” She also called into question the legitimacy of her uncle’s victory, tweeting to Joy Reid of MSNBC: "FBI, Comey, Wikileaks, Russia, obsession with emails, normalization of racism, sexual assault. Fair and square? No.”
Currently, her Twitter bio reads: "#blacklivesmatter she/her/hers.”
Mary's book is already sending shock waves through Washington and the Trump family, especially since it is just months before the November election and this news comes swift on the heels of John Bolton’s much-anticipated memoir. Also, this is the first time a Trump family member has written a tell-all criticizing the president.
