Just hours after the criminal indictment was announced against the Trump Organization and longtime Chief Financial Officer Allen Weisselberg, Mary Trump revealed that there was a distinct possibility that former President Donald Trump's children, Don Jr. Eric and Ivanka, will flip on their father in order to save their own necks because they have a transactional relationship with him.

The Trump Organization and Weisselberg face indictment on charges including conspiracy, grand larceny, criminal tax fraud, and falsifying business records. While it has been reported that Weisselberg has remained loyal to Trump and is not cooperating against him with investigators, Mary, Trump's niece, has warned that the ex-POTUS should not count on his children to continue being loyal to him. “His relationship with them, and their relationship with him, is entirely transactional and conditional,” she told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday, July 1. “They’re not going to risk anything for him, just as he wouldn’t risk anything for them.”

Ivanka was once the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, a role that currently belongs to Eric Trump. Eric is also a trustee of the company. Alongside Eric, Donald Trump Jr runs his father's company. Since the indictment says other executives may have benefited from the alleged tax fraud that the company is accused of engaging in, investigators might turn their focus on these three children of the former president next. Before that happens, any of the three or all of them might turn on their father, according to Mary. “I think [Donald Trump] would be surprised to learn that I don’t believe my cousins would exercise that kind of loyalty towards him,” she said. 

'Trump would walk over bodies of his children'

A number of people on Twitter agreed with Mary Trump's notion about his children flipping on him to save themselves. "Mary Trump essentially confirming to @maddow what I’ve been saying for years: Donald Trump would walk over the bodies of his children to escape a burning building & then blame them for setting the fire #[email protected]," one of them said, while another noted, "Interesting to see Mary Trump on Rachel Maddow tonight saying Allen Weisselberg is more likely to remain loyal to TFG than his own children as their relationships are 100% transactional! That said, their criminality should not get a pass! They chose to participate & lie!!"

A third added, "I do believe they will turn into a pack of hyenas if/when it comes to that, Jared included." One more quipped, "What an amazing family and by amazing I mean horrible." The next remarked, "Indeed. Hasn't Javanka already started to distance themselves from 'daddy'?" Another said, "An electrifying notion that Mary's cousins will fold before Weisselberg!" A commenter added, "Ivanka will tidily fold. Eric & Don Jr will messily collapse." A person reacted with, "Dog eat dog Offsprings just like their pappy Self survival I’m betting Family pin it on Eric." Another commented, "The Trumps will do what Trumps do: take care of numero uno."
