Trump's niece Mary pictured beaming behind Resolute Desk three years before writing explosive tell-all memoir
Mary also described attending a meal in the Executive Dining room of the White House and claimed that Trump made a crass gag about Eric and his wife Lara
President Donald Trump's niece, Mary Trump, who is set to release an explosive memoir on the Trump family was reportedly pictured smiling as she sat at the Resolute Desk in the White House. The image, obtained by the Daily Mail, also shows an image of her grandfather, Fred Sr, on the shelf behind her, a man she claims she despises. The picture was reportedly taken in April 2017 during Mary's visit to the White House to celebrate her aunt Maryanne's 80th birthday.
The picture paints a scenario in contrast to her book titled 'Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man', where Mary has depicted a dark narrative of the Trump family, claiming President Trump's father emotionally neglected the now Republican leader so much that it amounted to "child abuse". According to his niece, the psychological damage caused by it resulted in the Republican becoming a sociopath, a narcissist, and a threat to the entire country.

Mary, in 2016, had also tweeted that Trump's election win was the "worst night of my life." However, despite the misgivings she mentioned in her book, the author accepted an invitation to visit her uncle in the White House a year later. The trip reportedly included a free night at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, where general rooms cost around $300 a night.
Mary mentioned the visit in her book, describing walking past paintings of former first ladies inside the building on her way to meet her uncle. She reportedly stopped in front of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's painting and wondered "how this could have happened?" referring to Trump's 2016 win against Clinton. The entire Trump family was present during the April 2017 visit, including the president's son Eric, whom Mary did not recognize because they had not seen each other since he was in high school.
She also referred to her picture taken during the visit behind the Resolute Desk, stating that she later saw the photo and described Fred Sr as "hovering behind me like a ghost." She described attending a meal in the Executive Dining room of the White House and claimed that Trump made a crass gag about Eric and his wife Lara Trump.
President Trump reportedly said: "Lara there, I barely even know who the f*** she was, honestly, but then she gave a great speech during the campaign in Georgia supporting me." He reportedly became angry when Maryanne reminded everyone at the table of the time when his late brother Fred Jr dumped a bowl of mashed potatoes on the Republican's head "because he was being such a brat." Mary described that everyone laughed at the reminder except Trump who listened with his arms folded and a scowl on his face. The author, in her memoir, wrote that this kind of behavior was typical of Trump.
Mary, in her book, also claimed that her uncle ogled at her when she was 29 years old and in a swimsuit at Mar-a-Lago, with Trump allegedly saying: "Holy s**t, Mary, you're stacked!" The president's niece has also alleged that he paid a friend to take his SATs for him to attend the University of Pennsylvania's famous Wharton business school.
