Mary Trump’s track record
Mary Trump has long shown a kind of revenge against her uncle and his family. He has recorded at various liberal media outlets to trash the former president and his family.
Earlier last month, when left-wing MSNBC commentator Joy Reid asked him if he thought Donald Trump had turned the GOP into a “fascist” party, he said, “There is no doubt about it.” “
He claims that Republicans are passing voting laws in an attempt to re-elect Donald Trump in 2024. He needs to explain himself, because he has been beaten so badly. He was so humiliated that he could not bear it. ”
No one in Donald Trump’s family is immune to throwing Mary Trump under their bus. He added in August that his cousins, Ivanka and Don Jr., “don’t have the likes of their fathers” and that they “don’t have enough charisma to connect with Republicans.”
In a podcast in February, Mary Trump admitted to being the source of the 2018 tax story, adding, “Yeah, um, I’m really proud of it …”
“I do not fully understand how much risk I am taking. If anyone in my family knew what I was doing, there would be a reaction – I knew how vindictive they were – but there was no way to understand how deadly the consequences could be.
In response to the lawsuit, Mary Trump said in an interview with the Daily Beast,
“I think he’s defeated, and he’s going to throw whatever he can against the wall,” he added, “it’s frustrating. The walls are closing and he’s throwing something against the wall that will stick. Like Donald, he’s changing the subject.” Try to. ”
“A lot more will come, including other people and fake news media,” Donald Trump said of the case through a spokesman.
The lawsuit alleges that the newspaper persuaded Mary Trump to “smuggle records from her attorney’s office and return them to the Times”, although she signed a confidentiality agreement in 2001 after settling a controversial legal battle against Frederick Trump’s will.
