Mary Trump will break her silence with a tell-all interview on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ after a judge ruled she is free to promote her memoir about President Donald Trump and their family.
The interview is scheduled to air Wednesday morning and will be the first time the people can hear from the author herself about life in the Trump family.
Judge Hal Greenwald of the New York State Supreme Court stopped the Trump family’s attempt to gag Mary Trump from talking about her book – ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’ – which is being released today.
It’s already topped Amazon.com’s best seller list and the publisher sent out advance copies to several news outlets, including DailyMail.com.
Mary Trump’s book about her famous family is published on Tuesday, despite family concerns

Mary Trump, a trained psychologist, explores in the book how the role President Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump, played in his life and his development. She wrote in the book she has ‘no problem calling Donald a narcissist – he meets all nine criteria as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’
But Mary Trump had been unable to personally talk about it after Robert Trump, President Trump’s brother, argued that the book violated a confidentiality agreement related to Fred Trump’s estate. Mary Trump is President Trump’s niece, the daughter of his eldest brother Fred Trump, who died in 1981 due to complications from alcohol.
However the courts ruled in her favor – both in publishing the book and letting her discuss it.
Judge Greenwald ruled that stopping publication was a ‘moot’ point because the book had already been distributed to sellers and publicized in the media.
‘Notwithstanding that the book has been published and distributed in great quantities, to enjoin Mary L Trump at this juncture would be incorrect and serve no purpose. It would be moot,’ he wrote.
Robert Trump, who is barely mentioned in the book, led the lawsuit that attempted to stop Mary Trump from publishing it, citing an agreement she signed following a financial settlement after her grandfather’s death.
Greenwald refused to apply a broad view of the estate settlement, saying that ‘what was confidential was the financial aspect.’
‘The parties agreed to keep the settlement under seal. That’s it,’ Greenwald wrote of the deal that was executed at a time when ‘the Trump family were New York based real estate developers and not much else.’
Mary Trump’s book is the second insider account of Trump to be published this summer. Former National Security Adviser John Bolton published his memoir of working in the White House last month – a book the administration tried to stop from being published.
Mary Trump, a trained psychologist, explores in the book how the role the president’s father, Fred Trump, played in his life and his development. She wrote in the book she has ‘no problem calling Donald a narcissist – he meets all nine criteria as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.’
She also calls the president a ‘sociopath’ and claims his life work has been an effort o please his difficult father, Fred Trump.
Mary Trump, in her book, calls Fred Sr a ‘high functioning sociopath’, marked by a lack of empathy, a facility for lying and a lack of interest in others
The White House has disputed book’s claims, which includes the charge that the president cheated on his SATs, paying a friend to take them for him so he could attend the University of Pennsylvania’s famous Wharton School of Business
A spokesperson said the book was written ‘clearly in the author’s own financial self-interest.’
‘The President describes the relationship he had with his father as warm and said his father was very good to him,’ White House spokeswoman Sarah Matthews said earlier this month. ‘Also, the absurd SAT allegation is completely false.’
The book paints a dark portrait of the Trump family and says that the President’s father Fred Sr neglected him so much it amounted to ‘child abuse’.
The psychological damage was such that Donald became a sociopath, a narcissist and a threat to the entire country, according to Mary.
Mary, 55, portrays the family as deeply damaged people, starting with Fred Sr and his wife Mary Ann and filtering down to their five children.
Mary is the child of Fred Trump Jr, the President’s older brother who died in 1981 after struggling with alcoholism
Her own father Fred Trump Jr. died in 1981 aged 43 after battling alcoholism and the Trumps all but cut her out of the family estate.
President Trump, who rarely admits mistakes, told The Washington Post last year that he regretted the pressure he and his father had put on Fred Jr to join the family business when his brother wanted to be a pilot instead.
‘It was just not his thing … I think the mistake that we made was we assumed that everybody would like it. That would be the biggest mistake … There was sort of a double pressure put on him,’ Trump said at the time.
Yet as her father lay dying, Mary Trump claims: ‘Donald went to the movies’.
Mary writes: ‘Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father. I can’t let him destroy my country’.
In another section of the 240-page book, Mary reveals Donald’s eldest sister Maryanne, a now retired federal judge, scoffed at his presidential run, calling him ‘a clown’ and poked fun at his ‘five bankruptcies’.
She describes the president’s childhood as a toxic environment where his emotional needs were not met, turning him into a man without empathy.
She writes: ‘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 Sr, 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, as if his children could look after themselves.
‘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.

‘Love meant nothing to Fred; he expected obedience, that was all. 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.’
