Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump's book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man" makes claims that the sitting President of the United States was abused by his father Fred Trump Sr growing up.
Mary a psychologist states Trump suffered "child abuse" at the hands of his father,' she claimed in her explosive memoir, Dailymail reported.
Mary Trump says that "love meant nothing" to Fred Trump Sr and that the man only wanted obedience, which put Donald in a quagmire.
Mary also expresses that Donald's mother became ill when he was just two years old, leaving him with "total dependence" on Fred, who she says caused him "terror."
Neglected by his workaholic father, Mary claims the President suffered childhood "deprivations that would scar him for life." She also describes Donald as Frankenstein's monster and his dad as the mad scientist.
Mary added, she believes her uncle "is not only a narcissist but 'meets the criteria for antisocial personality disorder, which in its most severe form is generally considered sociopathy."
Mary said Trump "meets all nine criteria’ as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the standard text for defining mental illness."
But Mary writes that a case could be made that Donald "meets the criteria for antisocial personality disorder," which in its most severe form and those with it are generally considered sociopaths. However, an antisocial personality disorder can also refer to chronic criminality, arrogance, and disregard for other human beings.
She also adds, that "Donald may also meet some of the criteria for dependent personality disorder’ as well."
Mary recounts the situation in her opinion that led to Donald becoming the man he is today.
Mary claims that when Donald's sister Maryanne a retired judge was 12 years old, she found their mother Mary in the bathroom unconscious due to complications from Robert's birth nine months prior. She was rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency hysterectomy. After that traumatic event, Mary was never the same and she became absent from their lives. Mary states this absence "created a void in the lives of her children."
Both, Donald and Robert, were two and a half years old and nine months old, respectively’. Mary believes that this event happening to his mother and the lack of a father figure in Donald's life is what shaped him as a person.
Mary also said that Fred Sr was a "high functioning sociopath", who had a lack of empathy, cared only about himself, and was a pathological liar. Because of this Mary argues that Trump was robbed of his “ability to develop and experience the entire spectrum of human emotion”.
The publication of the book follows a lengthy legal battle between Mary Trump and her family, who tried to block its release by claiming it violated a 20-year-old non-disclosure agreement signed in a lawsuit settlement over the will of Fred Trump, the president’s father, and Mary's grandfather.
The Guardian also reports that Mary discusses Trump's treatment of women, expressing her own bizarre experience with her uncle.
“I stopped asking him for an interview,” she writes, adding that on a visit to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida to work on the book, she was wearing a bathing suit when Trump looked at his niece and said: “Holy shit, Mary. You’re stacked.”
Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct and assault by more than 20 women including charges of underage assault. He denies all such claims.
Mary has a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, which gives an interesting take on Trump due to both her education and experience of growing up around the Trump family. Mary’s father, Fred Jr, was president Trump’s eldest brother. He died of an alcohol-related illness in 1981, Trump frequently referenced him when speaking about the opioid abuse epidemic.
That's not the only family secret, Bloomberg previously reported that Donald Trump's grandfather and Fred Trump Sr's father Friedrich Trump ran a — restaurant, bar, and brothel in British Columbia. Trump is also distant cousins with Hillary Clinton his 2016 opponent, however, neither seems to be mentioned thus far in the media about Mary's book.
The book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man" will be published next Tuesday, July 14th.
