A judge refused Thursday to block the publication of a book written by a niece of Donald Trump and braque, according to its publisher, “a light on the dark history” of the family of the american president.
The president’s brother, Robert S. Trump, accusing Mary Trump had violated a confidentiality agreement in connection with the legacy of Fred Trump, father of Donald Trump.
It had referred to a specialized court of New York to prevent the publication of the book, but the latter declared itself incompetent to resolve the dispute.
Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man (Too much and never enough: how my family has created the most dangerous man in the world in French) should be able to go out as planned on the 28th of July, a little more than three months of the presidential election.
The books of criticism on Donald Trump, who is running for a second term, multiplied, but this is the first time that a member of his family is engaged in the exercise.
Mary Trump, 55 years old, is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the elder brother of the billionaire republican, who died in 1981 at the age of 42 and died of alcoholism.
In this book of 240 pages, it tells of the events she witnessed in the home of his grandparents in New York, where they grew up, the five children of Fred and Mary Anne Trump.
“She described a nightmare because of trauma, relationships, destructive, and a mixture of tragic neglect and abuse,” says his publisher Simon & Schuster.
Ms. Trump, specialist in clinical psychology, argues that the president “has rejected and ridiculed” his father, of whom he was the favourite son, when he began to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.
