WASHINGTON — President Trump’s niece Mary sure seemed happy to be in the company of her “monster” of an uncle as she smiled for a picture sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office.
The photo, published by the Daily Mail on Wednesday, was reportedly taken in April 2017 when the family celebrated the 80th birthday of the president’s sister, Maryanne, just months after he was inaugurated.
Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist who describes her uncle as a “sociopath” in her unflattering new tell-all, can be seen wearing a black dress and holding a black handbag on her lap as she smiles for the camera.
A picture of her grandfather, Fred Trump, a man she also claims to despise, can be seen over her right shoulder.
The president’s only niece, 55, is airing the famous family’s dirty laundry in “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” where she describes Trump as a broken and deeply scared individual who was damaged by an abusive relationship with his father.
In the book, she describes her uncle as a “monster” and recalls how she decided to “take Donald down” by supplying his tax documents to the New York Times.
The family tried to block the release of the Simon & Schuster book, claiming it broke the terms of a decades-old non-disclosure agreements Mary Trump signed following a dispute over Fred Trump Sr.’s estate.
However, a New York court ruled against the Trump family and the tell-all tome will be released next Tuesday, July 14.
The White House denounced the memoir on Tuesday as a “book of falsehoods.”
