Donald Trump trashes niece Mary Trump over tell-all book
President Trump joked that he’s the Book of the Month Club’s “ultimate member” in a tweet Friday night — as he trashed the tell-all from his niece Mary Trump as someone his parents “couldn’t stand.”
Trump went off on Mary and his former national security Adviser, John Bolton, who have both sold staggering numbers of books savaging the president as a sociopath unfit for office.
“I am the ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club,” Trump cracked.
After calling John Bolton a “low-life dummy”, the President went on to tweet, “Next up is Mary Trump, a seldom seen niece who knows little about me, says untruthful things about my wonderful parents (who couldn’t stand her! and me, and violated her NDA,” he went on.
“She also broke the Law by giving [sic] out my …. Tax Returns. She’s a mess! Many books have been written about me, some good, some bad.”
Bolton’s book from inside the White House, “The Room Where It Happened,” reached No. 1 on USA TODAY’s bestsellers list earlier this month, selling more than 780,000 copies in its first week.
The Trump administration fought tooth and nail to stop the release of the bombshell, in which Bolton laments, “I am hard pressed to identify any single Trump decision during my tenure that wasn’t driven by re-election calculations.”
Mary Trump’s book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” — which Trump’s camp had also tried to block from hitting the shelves — provides an unflattering insider account of Trump’s childhood and an analysis of his psyche.
She writes that her uncle is the result of “one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families” and was emotionally scarred by his “toxic” relationship with his father, the late developer Fred Trump.
Trump is predicting more ink to be spilt in the future.
“Both happily and sadly, there will be more to come!” he wrote of his future biographers.
