US President Donald Trump (74) and his team tried to publish the book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man" most dangerous man in the world "). But his niece Mary Trump (55), author of the work, was not intimidated. On the contrary. The reveal book is now even launched two weeks earlier than planned. As was to be expected, Mary Trump does not leave her powerful uncle with good hair and raises some allegations, as various US media report in first excerpts.
Some highlights from "Too Much and Never Enough"
For example, the "New York Times" reportsthat Mary Trump describes her uncle as "a child in the body of an adult". She outlines the US president as someone who has been "psychologically brutalized and harmed" by his father Fred Trump (1905-1999), whom she in turn calls "sociopath". As a result, Donald Trump developed "anger and distrust" as a defense "to cover up his own chronic insecurities".
Father Fred Trump gave his son a wrong picture of the world and damaged his ability to live in it, also quotes the Washington Post from the book. Her grandfather is said to have insisted that his children become "killers" who are not guided by their feelings.
Particularly piquant: Mary Trump claims that Donald Trump once cheated on the SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test). The SAT is a standardized college aptitude test that high school students must take. Trump is said to have hired someone who took over the SAT for him. The high score in the test ultimately helped Trump go to a prestigious school. He attended the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania.
Mary Trump also writes that her uncle had hired her as a ghostwriter for his own book for a while. As a material for this, she had been sent a smorgasbord of female names with whom Donald Trump allegedly wanted to go out, but which had rejected him and which he now described as "the worst, ugliest and fattest bitches" that he had ever met ". Among them were pop star Madonna (61) and German Olympic figure skating champion Katarina Witt (54).
Mary Trump also explains her view of the inheritance dispute surrounding Fred Trump. Other allegations outline Donald Trump's inappropriate behavior, including towards her. Her uncle is "the monster" that his father created. "In the end there would be no love for Donald at all, just his excruciating thirst for it," she writes.
It is questionable whether Mary Trump's allegations will affect the outcome of the U.S. presidential election on November 3. The book definitely causes a stir, but must also be seen in context. Some of the allegations are based on hearsay, some of the events are said to have happened many years ago and there is no evidence to support this. Whether other family members break their silence to support Mary Trump's statements is also questionable. The book will be released in the United States on July 14. It will be released in Germany on August 31.
