Donald Trump niece Mary Trump and his former National Security Adviser John Bolton have managed to get their tell-all books out just under the wire. Bolton’s book has been held up for months awaiting approval from the White House. It never came, but the author will publish it anyway. Trump’s niece, Mary Trump’s, book is far more lethal, though.
Bolton’s The Room Where It Happened is a memoir, and had it come out during the president’s impeachment hearings might have made a big difference. The published wrote, according to The Washington Post:
‘[It will be the] most comprehensive and substantial account of the Trump Administration [and chronicle’s a] President addicted to chaos, who embraced our enemies and spurned our friends, and was deeply suspicious of his own government.’
His niece was the source behind The New York Times investigation into how the president took in millions from “the family real estate company..” Although, Trump has the “image of a strong loyal family” radiating out to include his parents, siblings, and children, but the family. is toxic.
Trump hired his younger brother Robert Trump to work at his casino the Taj Mahal. His brother says that “the browbeating” he took there “changed forever” the brothers’ relationship. At this time, Robert has interest in a company receiving a “$33 million federal contract.”
The president’s sister Maryanne Trump Barry resigned her federal appellate judgeship after an investigation into whether she violated “judicial conduct rules related to her role in the family company’s tax practices.” At the time, her brother was considering her for a position on the Supreme Court (SCOTUS).
POTUS’ other sister Elizabeth Grau used to be an administrative assistant at Chase Manhattan Bank.
Last year, the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office dropped his nephew’s family from his healthcare plan. Fred III’s son William has cerebral palsy, which is how the president cruelly mocked a journalist who had similar symptoms.
The president blew the issue off, saying that William Trump’s cerebral palsy treatment was not that expensive of a cost:
‘[W]hen [Fred III] sued us, we said, “Why should we give him medical coverage.” One child was having a difficult time. It was an unfortunate thing. It worked out well, and we all get along.’
Trump continually criticized his elder brother Fred Trump Jr. who later died from complications of alcoholism. POTUS said he regretted doing so. Fred Jr. wanted to be a TWA pilot not join the family business. The president told Fred Jr.:
‘You’re wasting your time. ‘I do regret having put pressure on him. It was just not his thing. . . . I think the mistake that we made was we assumed that everybody would like it.’
The father Fred Senior dismissed his son’s dream, too, saying just wanted to be:
‘[A] chauffeur in the sky.’
POTUS’ niece Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist, wrote:
‘[Ir describes] a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.’
Fred Trump III noted in a court document:
‘[My] aunt and uncles thought nothing about taking away my critically ill son’s coverage in an attempt to browbeat me into abandoning my claim in the probate contest. You have to be tough in this family. I guess I have what my father didn’t have. I will stick to my guns. I just think it was wrong. These are not warm and fuzzy people. They never even came to see William in the hospital. Our family puts the ‘fun’ in dysfunctional.’
Mary Trump said she was angry at how the entire family treated her immediate family and her brother, William:
‘Given this family, it would be utterly naive to say it has nothing to do with money. But for both me and my brother, it has much more to do with that our father be recognized. He existed, he lived, he was their oldest son. And William is my father’s grandson. He is as much a part of that family as anybody else. He desperately needs extra care.’
During a meeting with his casino executives, POTUS complained:
‘We’re going to lose a fortune. Donald, you know there’s just no way to predict these things.’
The future president was incensed. His brother Robert Trump said Donald Trump told him:
‘I’m sure as hell not going to listen to you in this situation. I listened to you and you got me into this.’
‘I’m getting out of here. I don’t need this.’
Robert has said before:
‘I support Donald one thousand percent. I think he’s doing a great job. I think he’s got a great message.’
Former casino executive Jack O’Donnell said this about the siblings:
‘They might be polite, but Donald’s personality is one of dominance, and that includes his family. That is no fun for anyone.’
