If there’s anything that makes Donald Trump squirm, it’s an inability to control his public image. The same man who explodes in Twitter rants when anyone dares to say something disparaging about him is definitely going to lose his mind over the news that his niece, the daughter of his older brother Fred Trump, Jr., is publishing a tell-all book about Trump and his family.

In 2002, Mary Trump spoke with The New York Times and provided information about the Trump family’s tax abuses, providing documentation of their financial corruption and abuse, a story that won the Pulitzer Prize. Now, Mary plans to release a tell-all book called Too Much And Never Enough on August 11, shortly before the Republican National Convention.
According to The Daily Beast:
‘One of the most explosive revelations Mary will detail in the book, according to people familiar with the matter, is how she played a critical role helping The New York Times print startling revelations about Trump’s taxes, including how he was involved in “fraudulent” tax schemes and had received more than $400 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real-estate empire.’
Time to revisit this. It has now been revealed that the principal source for this 2018 investigation by the @nytimes was Trump's NIECE, Mary Trump. She will be releasing a tell-all book in August, just before the GOP convention. Bring it on, Mary!https://t.co/AzWOU42U9w

So far, more intimate details of the book are unknown, but is said to include first-hand accounts that will expose several members of the Trump family, including his sister. Judge Maryann Trump recently retired from the bench under investigation for tax fraud related to the family fortune. Her retirement ended the investigation officially.
‘Details of the book are being closely guarded by its publisher, Simon & Schuster, but The Daily Beast has learned that Mary plans to include conversations with Trump’s sister, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry, that contain intimate and damning thoughts about her brother, according to people with knowledge of the matter.’

Part of the book will deal with a story that made the rounds in the press previously about Donald and Maryann’s cruelty toward their older brother who contested their father’s will, cutting off his health insurance that covered his disabled son in retaliation.
‘After Fred Jr.’s children brought their messy court case against the family—contesting their grandfather’s will and alleging it was “procured by fraud and undue influence” on the part of Donald and his siblings—they highlighted Donald’s callous treatment of family members as he, along with siblings Maryanne and Robert, cut off the medical benefits to his nephew’s sick child William, who was born with cerebral palsy. The move, the family said at the time, was payback for Mary and Fred the 3rd’s challenge to the will.’
In my book, I mention Trump's cruelty toward his severely disabled great-nephew, and how it relates to his contempt for disabled people in general. pages 61-65 of https://t.co/ZRuH8RpeQb
