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.

    Really didn’t share anything we can’t see for ourselves. Does prove his guy should never have been given the opportunity to lead our country amidst his low character and lying traits that will eventually prove what a corrupt incompetent buffoon he remains to be from adolescence to the present.

    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. Niece should win Pulitzer over this MASTERPIECE. PRISON FOR THE WHOLE ADDAMS FAMILY COME JANUARY. Bye "Basket of deplorables". The Right Chicken Wing media is hoping for an all out bloody war with China so Chump can have an excuse to stay in power after he loses in Nov. Sad! Time for the Blackwater soldier wannabes in Portland to go home and play daddy now. Peace & Love to the MAGA minorities. Biden our time until the adults take over and drain the cesspool. Notice how the fleas of Washington only ever go on Fox News to spread their lies and misinformation? Thank god they only reach the 35% of Americans that are brainwashed zombie Karen’s and Kens.
  • Interesting, yet very one sided account of one’s view of events.

    I enjoyed the read, but I did find the tone of the book to be quite bitter and one sided. I understand the whys. I can see the reasons Mary would be really eager to “tell her story”, but I feel a lot of it is based on hearsay, hurt feelings of family members, as well as her own feeling of rejection by the Trumps. There was no “bomb shells”, nothing sensational in the book. It was a very interesting look inside the Trump family from someone who was kept at arm’s length most of her life. Would I recommend the book? Sure! I think it is a good read.

    Mary Trump’s book is so good, so achingly relative, so thoughtful and well-written, that I cannot put it down. I have read 100 pages in what seems like a matter of minutes. It is not written with the voice of an angry, disgruntled, distant family member... it is written calmly with much care taken and many explanations given by someone who has made a living studying human behavior and relationships. I believe Mary Trump, wholeheartedly, and what she describes and goes on to explain in this book makes sense not only on a psychology level but on a dysfunctional family level. Excellent read.

    Wow. I understand everything now. Such a sad childhood with many still living to tell the story. Mary’s profession and her life come together to explain her Uncle and others in her family. Fascinating!

  • Nah, she’s not bitter

    From the beginning and on every page you sense this is a vengeful lady using her degrees as a veneer of objectivity,a thin one at that. Wait for it to get to the .99 bin.
  • Sad and unsettling

    Let me state that my comments are not based on politics. I bought this book with anticipation of learning more about Donald Trump and how he reasons the way he does. Partway through the read I realized it is a book written for the author to vindicate her father from her perceived abuse that he suffered throughout his life. It may have started off like that for Freddy Trump, but at some point each person has to take responsibility for their own shortcomings. I don’t believe Freddy Trump ever did that. The author is very petty and ungrateful for any benefits given on her behalf. Nothing was good enough for her. She puts a negative spin on every thing she writes. Sad, selfish and self-serving. Bummer of a read!
