President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, hasn’t spoken publicly about her uncle in two decades, but that’s about to change. The last time Mary gave an interview was in December 2000 when she talked with the New York Daily News about the family’s legal battle over Fred Trump Sr.’s estate. Now, she is telling all of the Trump family’s secrets in her new book Too Much and Never Enough.
The last time the public heard from Mary Trump, she was a 35 year old graduate student living on Long Island, New York, with her brother, Fred Trump III. Mary and Fred the third were fighting with the rest of the family over the will of Fred Sr. – her and Fred’s grandfather, and Donald’s dad.

At the time, Mary said that Donald and his siblings – Robert, Maryanne, and Elizabeth – “should be ashamed of themselves,” but she was sure that they weren’t. Mary and her brother claimed that the Trump family had kept them from getting their fair shire of Fred Sr.’s estate.
They explained that Fred Sr. left the bulk of it to his four living children, but the wife and children of the late Fred Trump Jr. – Mary and Fred III’s dad – did not get an equal share.
“Given this family, it would be utterly naive to say it has nothing to do with money,” Mary said at the time.
According to The Daily Beast, Mary’s new book is filled with “harrowing and salacious” details about the Trump family. She also tells the story about how she was the primary source for The New York Times’ 2018 Pulitzer Prize-Winning investigation about the President’s taxes. It was Mary who gave the newspaper Fred Trump Sr.’s tax returns, as well as other confidential Trump family financial documents.

In 2016, President Trump said that his family settled their 20-year fight over his father’s estate “very amicably.” Mary and Fred III sued in March 2000 with allegations that Fred Trump Sr.’s will was “procured by fraud and undue influence” by Donald Trump and his siblings.
The book’s publisher, Simon & Schuster, is keeping most of the details of the book a secret. But, they promise that it will be quite the tell-all filled with intimate, private details.
Too Much and Never Enough will be released on July 28, just ahead of the Republican National Convention.
