Donald Trump’s niece Mary has written a tell-all book about their horrible family

I’ve never paid that much attention to Donald Trump’s extended family, beyond the few items I’ve read about his KKK-supporting father. Trump had siblings, including an older brother, Fred Trump Jr. Fred Jr. died in 1981 from a heart attack, having been forced to renounce his part in the Trump family slumlord business. Mary Trump is Fred Jr’s daughter, making her Donald Trump’s niece. She’s 55 years old and she’s barely spoken to her uncle and his family in years. She sued Donald Trump back in 2000 over the terms of Fred Senior’s will and what should have been her family’s fair cut. It’s through that lawsuit that Mary Trump got her hands on reams of documentation about Fred Sr’s empire and Donald Trump’s real estate business (much of which he inherited from his father). Anyway, Mary Trump has written a tell-all book, set to be published this summer:

Donald Trump’s niece, his deceased brother’s daughter, is set to publish a tell-all book this summer that will detail “harrowing and salacious” stories about the president, according to people with knowledge of the project. Mary Trump, 55, the daughter of Fred Trump Jr. and eldest grandchild of Fred Trump Sr., is scheduled to release Too Much And Never Enough on Aug. 11, just weeks before the Republican National Convention.

One of the most explosive revelations Mary will detail in the book, according to people familiar with the matter, is how she played a critical role helping The New York Times print startling revelations about Trump’s taxes, including how he was involved in “fraudulent” tax schemes and had received more than $400 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire.

As she is set to outline in her book, Mary was a primary source for the paper’s Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation, supplying Fred Trump Sr.’s tax returns and other highly confidential family financial documentation to the paper. Details of the book are being closely guarded by its publisher, Simon & Schuster, but The Daily Beast has learned that Mary plans to include conversations with Trump’s sister, retired federal judge Maryanne Trump Barry, that contain intimate and damning thoughts about her brother, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

Mary Trump has kept out of the public eye and has not spoken publicly in decades—but in 2000, amidst a bitter family court battle over Fred Trump Sr.’s will, she told the New York Daily News, “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 [Fred Jr.] be recognized,” she said. Fred Trump Jr., the firstborn son and once the heir apparent to his father’s real estate empire, worked for Trans World Airlines after turning his back on the family business. He died in 1981 aged just 42 from a heart attack owing to complications from his alcoholism, leaving behind a son, Fred the 3rd, and daughter Mary, who has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology.

Mary apparently also outs herself as the New York Times’ source for their huge exclusive about Fred Trump Sr.’s finances and empire, which Donald Trump inherited. She held on to all of the documents from her 2000 case, and she provided those docs to the Times. I imagine there will be even more detail about the origins of the Trump family empire and more dirt about Fred Sr. and how Donald Trump mistreated his older brother (which he actually admitted in previous interviews). Personally, I couldn’t care less about the internal family drama, but I’m sure some sh-t will come out of the book and it should be good for driving more negative headlines about the Trumpers.

    Pre-plastic surgery Ivanka looks like her face is in a perpetual state of allergic reaction.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I think she had already had a few procedures done at that time.

      • minx says:

        Yeah, looks like she already had one nose job, but she got a more drastic one later. Chin implant and buccal fat removal still to come. Doesn’t look like she had the huge fake boobs yet either.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Yep, her lips look like mine did when I had an anaphylactic episode.

    • Alexis says:

      I literally thought that WAS his niece and NOT Ivanka, Jesus she looks like a different person there.

      • Sparky says:

        As I’ve mentioned before, Tiffany has Ivanka’s “before” face.

      • Alexis says:

        @sparky, Tiffany’s face is sadly so much more tragic than Ivanka’s because she looks just like him, tiny a**hole-shaped mouth and all.

      • lucy2 says:

        I know, I was thinking wow the neice looks kinda like Ivanka!

      • Kat says:

        I don’t Personally have a chubby face but I think it looks pretty at least sometimes, small mouths can also be pretty, and on Tiffany it is. She’s a nice looking woman. Ivanka was cute before. Trump is terrible but his daughters are normal looking people, have feminine features, even pretty depending on ones taste. To my taste they are prettier than many celebrities we discuss here. Like, I prefer their faces over Karli Kloss or giseles face for example. we don’t need to pretend they are sooooo ugly because if they were nice people not from a gritting family they would definitely NOT stand out as bad looking even if they also wouldn’t stand out as gorgeous. Ivanka is still ok looking but the surgeries will probably start looking weird if she doesn’t stop soon. Was rewatching friends, also just watched the morning show. Jennifer Anniston was so cute with a chubbier face, it’s a sign of youth to me. I wish people would appreciate their natural beauty and not emulate the kardashians. I’m in my 30s but have younger coworkers. Some are so desperate to be hot that they put on a ton of makeup and it does not look as cute in real life as it does in their social media! (Looks ridiculous and makes me sad to see the body dismorphia). I’m sure they’d do surgeries if they could afford it. It is an aspect of our culture that i really dislike, I hope these trends will go away soon

      • Betsy says:

        @kat – I genuinely think pre-surgery Ivanka is one of the ugliest people. I think she was raised to be an ugly person and it shows, all over her face. She looks just as bad now, but in a different way. She has the face she deserves.

        There are lots of people who are “ugly” who are just striking and lovely. She is not one of them.

      • minx says:

        Betsy—I agree. She was homely then and is plasticine now, but her real ugly self shows through either way.

      • Jenn says:

        Kat, yes, even as a teen I thought Teen Ivanka was drop-dead gorgeous. To me she just looks like her dad now — every trace of her mother is gone — and I find that very sad, as well as rather unsettling.

  2. Mtec says:

    He should have been in prison a long time ago.

  3. Mireille says:

    Countdown to Don’s Twitter meltdown in 5…4…3…2…1

  4. Tiffany says:

    Melanie really is a completely different person in those before pics.

  5. Some chick says:

    Is that Melania’s original face?!

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah – I almost didn’t recognise her.

      • NatureLover says:

        No, it’s not her original face. She had her nose done when she first came to NY for modeling, mostly print ads, but it’s not her birth nose. It might be her second nose though.

        Of course when his nieces book comes out it will be the usual statement, I barely know her, she’s lying…
        I don’t know how he keeps his lies straight, unless he writes them on his Etch-A-Sketch and has someone hold it so it doesn’t fall forward🤣

    • Tate says:

      I think it is. Is that Ivanka’s original face?

    • Betsy says:

      She looks more like Sofia Vergara in some of these pics; I assume Melania had already begun have surgeries.

  6. Angie says:

    OMG you mean there’s MORE trash?? That mans face is a mixture of the devil and the joker…gives me the creeps!

  7. Darla says:

    Trump has his mother’s face, and it is so disturbing. Is he modeling his hairstyle on hers? Anyway, I am all for this. Can’t wait till it’s released.

  8. Seraphina says:

    Unfortunately it make his cult followers love him even more.

  9. Jess says:

    He’ll say she’s lying for money and attention and his idiotic followers will believe him. Nothing will change, sadly.

  10. BUBS says:

    Not a big fan of any member of the Trump family, but I’m all for anything that muddies up the waters for Donald…especially in a crucial election year!!! #VoteBlue

  11. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    This is just going to get his base going even more, sadly. But I’m still here for it.

  12. Pollyv says:

    Anyone else notice that back in the day and pre eye surgery Melania always looked kind of disheveled with lanky, unstyled hair and nondescript inexpensive clothing. I guess Donald wasn’t really paying her yet and she was surviving on her meaner earnings from modelling.

    • ClaireB says:

      That’s what we looked like in the late 90s/early 2000s. Hair and makeup weren’t quite as polished as they are now.

    • Rhys says:

      I got the same impression from the photos of her before she moved in with him and became his official official girlfriend. In a few batches from the Getty Images she is wearing the most hideous looking fur lined kimono. Her hair is thin and disheveled. That tiny 00′s purse hanging right under her arm. It’s obvious she was making very little money and was nowhere near becoming the supermodel Trump tooted her to be later on. I don’t blame her for going out with him – what other options did she have? Going back to post-soviet Slovenia? Once you have lived in Western Europe and America a little, and enjoyed all that Capitalism has to offer, it’s very very difficult to just go back.

      • Starkille says:

        Slovenia is not the backwater hellhole that Americans seem to think it is. It’s actually got a higher HDI than the US as well as several “Western European” countries.

      • Alyse says:

        Slovenia is SUCH a great underrated country (actually lets keep it that way lol, it’s too good to share!)
        And possibly the most attractive general population I’ve experienced!

      • clomo says:

        I think it would be cool to live there, an underrated place for sure.

      • Tok says:

        @STARKILLE, and yet, neither Melania nor her sister, nor her parents went back to live there. Not one of them spends any significant amount of time in Slovenia. Instead, they all got themselves an American citizenship as soon as it became possible, as well as a little bit of real estate in the US.

  13. Sean says:

    For more dirt on the Trump empire and their corruption, I highly recommend following @CaslerNoel and @LincolnsBible on Twitter. Noel Casler is a comedian who worked with the Trumps on “The Apprentice” and spent the last several years divulging Trump’s drug abuse, health problems racism and general ineptness. He also has a disgusting tale about Ivanka giving daddy a lap dance in front of the crew. “Lincoln’s Bible” is a journalist who writes under this pseudonym and has been documenting Trump’s long history (going back to his grandfather) of essentially being property of the Genovese crime family/Russian mafia. I also recommend reading Craig Unger’s “House of Trump, House of Putin” as well as Sarah Kendzior’s “Hiding In Plain Sight”. Unger’s book details the Russian mafia slow infiltration of the NY underworld and how Trump became involved with them. Kendzior’s work chronicles America’s slow erosion that brought us to where we are.

  14. Digital Unicorn says:

    It’s well known that he had his brother’s family cut out of the fathers will after his brother died – it was done deliberately as he wanted his brothers share for himself and felt that because he didn’t work in the family business they were not entitled to it.

    We should all stock up on the popcorn when the evil spawn start fighting over Dump’s will – Ivanka will pretty much get everything.

    • lucy2 says:

      Here’s hoping there’s nothing left, and that it’s all seized by the state of NY when they come after him with charges.

      I was going to give this niece crap for cashing in on a book now, years into it, but then saw that she was the source for the articles about the various scams. Good for her! She must really loathe him, and rightfully so.

      • Betsy says:

        Her cashing in doesn’t bother me at all. She was never in a position to do anything about that loathsome man or his foul positions, unlike John Bolton, for example. He’s cashing in and he could have done some things.

      • Hootsky says:

        I knew Mary in the late 80s/early 90s. She’s a solid human being, whip smart, grounded and hard working.

        I doubt she’s “cashing in.” More like lending her position and perspective to help prevent this evil cretin from having another four years to destroy democracy.

    • Courtney B says:

      Trump threatened to yank the family’s health insurance if they didn’t settle. They had a chronically ill son and relied on it. I guess it was Mary’s brother’s family? It was out years before he ran but never came back up. Given voters routinely mention healthcare as a major issue, I’d trumpet (no pun intended) it.

  15. ClaireB says:

    She has a PhD in psychology? I might be interested to hear her inside stories about this side of her family.

    Also, CB, one of the ads on this page is for FamTeeWorld and it has some Re-elect Dump merchandise on it.

  16. AnnaKist says:

    Aaaaaaaaaand, cue vile or otherwise disparaging remarks about his niece; her looks, her age, her weight, her honesty, her stupidity, her jealousy, etc etc. I hope this will give him sh-tloads of stress during the run up to the election.

  17. Veronica S. says:

    Damn, those photos are like a time lapse track of how much everybody has wrecked their face with plastic surgery in that family.

    Taxes are kind of a meh reveal. You know Trump has done way worse and far darker shit to his children. You can see it all over Ivanka’s face.

    • Betsy says:

      Look at the pictures of her and Donald in Winston Churchill’s bunker if you want to see evidence. (Be forewarned however, if that is a triggering issue for you. It is not for me, but even I could see it.)

      • whatWHAT? says:

        there are “worse” pictures than that, but that one is sad…never seen it.

        there are pics of her sitting on his lap as a pre-teen or early teen, caressing his face. One of her sitting on a bed (also very young) with her legs across his lap and her arms around him. a similar one in the back of a limo, etc. it’s gross.

  18. Yvette says:

    I’m waiting for Tiffany to write a book. Oh the tales she could tell about her sibs (who I’m sure have spared no delicacy in letting Tiffany know her place in the family hierarchy … especially Ivanka), her step-mother, and her … Dad.

    • Sara says:

      If she’s on daddy’s pay roll, she’s not going to say anything. Tiffany is estranged from her awful father and siblings, but she’s still a rich L.A. trustafarian.

  19. KellyRyan says:

    I am interested in the book, thanks for the recommendations on Twitter. There are a few vids on Dumpty on y/t, Felix Sater and the golf course in Scotland which are revealing. Dumpty and his bankruptcy filings left him without an American bank who would do business with him. He currently has debt with Deutche Bank who is making comments on possible defaults. Dumpty has shades of Madoff, running scams and schemes.

    • Sparky says:

      Trump has taken his case over whether Deutschebank can release has financial info all the way to the Supreme Court. DB has the receipts!!!!

  20. SJR says:

    I know more than enough about Trump, no way will I buy this book.
    Here, save ya some time..They are awful people. Done.

  21. lisa says:

    These pics above are of the OTHER Mary Trump, The mother of the Orange Menace. Mary Trump, his niece, is only 55. I couldn’t find any pics of her at all with the First Family.

  22. Sara says:

    This won’t matter a lick to his cult followers. He has them so conditioned to thinking anything negative that comes out about him is fake. Repeat it incessantly, and the herd will come to believe it.

  23. Minorbird says:

    I’m still here for it!!!

  24. Shoshone says:

    I would love to hear about the family dynamics of Trump’s family of origin when he was growing up. Many people have speculated that Donald Trump is a narcissist and, as narcissists are wont to do, he appears to have organized his own children in the classic mold of “golden child” (Ivanka), “scapegoat child” (Don Jr.) and “forgotten child(ren)” (Eric and the two youngest.). It would be interesting to know if Trump was his own mother’s “golden child” growing up.

    Narcissistic parents are said to love having their children constantly compete against each other and prove themselves to be more worthy of the parent’s attention and favor. Donald Trump appears to orchestrate competitiveness between Ivanka and Don Jr at the very least. It is incredibly toxic for the children in these families to experience this and without distance and therapy they often become very damaged adults.

  25. Valerie says:

    He’s going to retaliate so hard, in court and on his dumb ass twitter. And as interesting as it will be, it won’t make a difference to his followers, who see every negative word spoken and action against him as a plot to undermine him. They’re too stuck in their conspiratorial and cultish mindset to believe anything else. :\

    They like to ask how many coincidences it takes before people ‘wake up’ — How many does it take for THEM? How many need to speak out before they realize that it isn’t a coincidence that all of these people, who knew him at different points in his life, all say the same thing for a reason?

  26. Moo says:

    Confused. Photo labeled “Mary” is an old woman in 1987. Mary is 55 now.

    Is there a pic of Tiffany in this post? I don’t see it.

    Melania…man, she looked different. Really pretty and like a real person. Is she like 30 years younger than her husband? YIKES.
    Her current face is like a suit of armor, which in a way is understandable.

  27. Holly hobby says:

    I don’t care if the followers still agree with him. I care that he’ll have a shit fit over this and perhaps stroke out.

    Also Ivanka’s original face!
