DONALD Trump suffered emotional child abuse from a father who left him scarred for life, his niece has claimed in her explosive new book.
In “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” Mary Trump will maintain that “love meant nothing” to Fred Trump Sr, who “terrified” the young President.
“It wasn’t enough for me to volunteer at an organization helping Syrian refugees. I had to take Donald down,” she writes.
The book will claim that a two-year-old Trump was neglected and left with a “total dependence on a caregiver (Fred Sr) who also caused him terror” when his mom got sick in the high-anticipated memoir, as per multiple reports.
His niece – who is the daughter of his late older brother, Fred Trump Jr – is expected to discuss bombshell claims that Trump “suffered deprivations that would scar him for life” at the hands of his dad.
The book published by Simon & Schuster will hit the shelves on July 14 instead of July 28 as a result of high demand and extraordinary interest, reports say.
A week before its release, the memoir is already No. 4 on the Amazon bestseller non-fiction list as of July 7.
The back of the book describes how “child abuse is, in some sense, a matter of ‘too much’ or ‘not enough.'”
“Today, Donald Trump is much as he was at three years old: incapable of growing, learning, or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in and synthesize information,” it reads.
“Donald’s mother became ill when he was two and a half, suddenly depriving him of his main source of comfort and human contact. His father, Fred, became his only available parent.
“But Fred firmly believed that dealing with young children was not his duty, and kept to his twelve-hours-a-day, six-days-a-week job at Trump Management, as if his children could look after themselves.”
‘LOVE MEANT NOTHING’
“From the beginning, Fred’s self-interest skewed his priorities and his care of children reflected his own needs, not theirs. He could not empathize with Donald’s plight, so his son’s fears and longings went unsoothed [sic],” the book claims.
“Love meant nothing to Fred; he expected obedience, that was all,” it continues.
“Over time, Donald became afraid that asking for comfort or attention would provoke his father’s anger or indifference when Donald was most vulnerable.
“That Fred would become the primary source of Donald’s solace when he was much more likely to be a source of fear or rejection put Donald in an intolerable position: total dependence on a caregiver who also caused him terror.
“Donald suffered deprivations that would scar him for life.”
Mary’s dad Fred Trump Jr passed away in 1981 after a struggle with alcoholism.
Her controversial volume is still subject to an ongoing legal dispute between its psychologist author and the rest of the Trump clan.
In this family, “killer” instinct is reportedly revered but empathy and kindness aren’t praised, which Mary likens to “twisted behaviors,” reported the New York Times.
In Mary’s book, she will explain how in Trump’s family, “taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged” but “cheating as a way of life.”
Trump even allegedly paid someone to take a pre-collegiate (SAT) test for him as a high school student, his niece clams.
His high score helped him to get into Wharton business school at the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious, Mary alleged.
The President has touted his attendance previously, saying Wharton was “the best school in the world,” describing it as “super genius stuff.”
A hearing in Dutchess County, north of New York City, is scheduled for Thursday about the explosive book.
Twenty years ago, Mary signed an NDA to settle a family dispute over Fred Sr’s estate and the Trump family is saying this should stop the memoir – but Mary, 55, didn’t agree.
Her publishers said she has a unique insight into Trump’s psyche as a person who spent a lot of time in her grandparents’ Queens household observing the “toxic” family dynamics at play.
Trump previously said the book would violate an NDA and “considered suing” his niece.
“She’s not allowed to write a book,” the president said in a previous interview with Axios last month.
“When we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with – she’s got a brother Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total… signed a nondisclosure.”
The memoir is also expected to deal with reports that Mary was the primary source of the New York Times’ Pulitzer Prize-winning probe into Trump’s taxes.
The October 2018 report revealed Trump pocketed more than $400 million in today’s dollars from his father’s real estate empire and “‘fraudulent’ tax schemes.”
Trump’s lawyer stated that the Times’ allegations of fraud and tax evasion were “100 percent false.”
Simon & Schuster leaked details from the book that the Trump family’s “financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms.”
It’s described as a “revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him.”
The author Mary has PhD from the Derner Institute of Advanced Psychological Studies and taught graduate students about trauma, psychopathology, and developmental psychology.
A Trump spokesperson declined to comment on the matter on Tuesday.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany not comment on the book’s allegations during a press briefing last month.
“I haven’t seen the book,” she told reporters. “The President hasn’t seen the book. So I’m not going to sit here and speculate about what it may say or what it may not say.”
