Publisher 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.

Quotes

  • “A concise and damning account…Writing with the sharp eye of a perpetual outsider in her own family, Trump presents a melancholic portrait of their complicity in her uncle’s worst behaviors. Readers who despair for President Trump’s ability to lead the country out of its current crises will have their worst suspicions confirmed.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “It’s the kind of detail—memorably specific, fundamentally human and decidedly weird—that gives this book an undeniable power…Mary, who was also a graduate student of comparative literature, knows how to tell a story and choose an anecdote.”

    - New York Times
  • “Mesmerizing and excruciating.”

    - The Times (London)
  • “A deftly written account of cross-generational trauma, but it is also suffused by an almost desperate sadness—sadness in the stories it tells and sadness in the telling, too.”

    - Washington Post
  • “Dripping with snideness, vibrating with rage, and gleaming with clarity—a deeply satisfying read.”

    " Although not cheerful, this was worthwhile listening. Puts the man into a context which to an extent explains some of his actions, reactions and possible future actions. The book was well written and well read. "

    " Mary Trump should've named this book "Personal Resentment" because it is obvious that she has loads of resentment toward the Trump Family. Anyone who dislikes Donald Trump will love this book. It's hard to tell if Mary Trump is attempting to reconcile her own issues or make a load of money, but her hatred and deep-rooted resentment is obvious and of course, she blames Donald Trump for her father's death. This book reads like a long rant, but I finished it because it was entertaining. "

    " The book is fasanating, showed how corapt the trump family is. From the old men Trump, throughout his life, Fred junior could not please the old men ,unstable, second guess every move, Than Donald long is you cheated every one never look back , you where ok in the old men eyes. Money come from the old men Donald could not earn a living, bankrupt,no knowledge of biessnise failure of the father to stop helping him. He should be in jail. To many failures from the, family,banks,polation,friends, some one should have stoped him 40 years ago. "
