Description

In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.

Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She 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.

A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.

Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

    You can tell she and little Donnie Chump are family, because they have the exact same chin. Let’s get the ORANGE SPHINCTER out of there in Nov. This book has the MAGA folks squirming in their little red panties. Niece should win Pulitzer over this MASTERPIECE. PRISON FOR THE WHOLE ADDAMS FAMILY COME JANUARY. Bye "Basket of deplorables" see ya. BTW...Those "federal agents" in Portland are actually contracted for hire mercenaries, aka Blackwater. Peace oot!

    This book is clearly just an attack and trying to make the president look bad right before the election. Fake news! Sad! They’re not sending their best!

    Funny how this book comes out right before the election! What a coincidence. Just a reason to get him out of office.
  • A must read

    Sounds to me like the Evil in this book came from Fred Trump. She’s pretty brave. And I applaud people like her!
  • Sorry I bought it

    Not afan of the President but the Author of this book is clearly bashing for her own personal reasons. It’s poorly written in my opinion and just not a very good read.
  • Thank you, Mary Trump, for your courage and insight

    You helped explain the unexplainable. I hope that God will watch over you and protect you from the malignant family (jackals) you were raised by and with. I also pray you have a really good security detail to help you escape these blind and deaf sycophants who refuse to see the Jim Jones they have followed.
