Mary Trump on Donald and Ailing Brother Robert Trump Relationship: “When I was in the family, they hated each other”


Donald Trump’s niece, Mary L. Trump, is giving an interview right now to Jane Fonda on her Sirius XM talk show and live on Greenpeace’s Zoom.

I will put the interview up when concluded.

A caller asked about the relationship between Donald and his ailing brother, currently in the hospital in New York and “gravely ill.”

Mary says that when she was in the family, Robert and Donald “hated each other.” She also said that Robert has been a few times in the last three months and she hopes he’s all right.

Mary is promoting her best selling book, “Too Much and Not Enough.” She is unsparing in her view of Donald, and of her grandfather, Fred Trump. She’s smart and articulate. She’s also a therapist, and is educated enough to know of what she’s speaking.

I’ve been told that Robert Trump, while considered “lovely,” has also battled heart ailments his whole life. He’s lived a very quiet life with his second wife in upstate New York, in a posh town full of horse farms.
