In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.

Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who occupied the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.

A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.

Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.


  • This is a stupid book

    By Sophie Jodoin
    If I owned the book I would rip the book and the cover and like torture the book in any I can.Mary Trump is fake.Trump is real! Joe Biden is racist and evil and so is Kamala Harris.
  • Inside look

    By Utah Johnny C
    Inside look of the man who will destroy our democracy.
  • A bunch of haters

    To claim that the President threatens world health, social fabric n economics is a false claim. None of these people actually look at facts. They watch communist news channels and take their word for it. To write a book about someone you apparently distaste makes you seem a lot more attention seeking then you will ever admit. But the liberals will excuse it. Everyone has toxic people whether it be family or strangers And that person is You mary. TRUMP FOREVER!
  • Too much and never enough

    By Saylbot2
    Gives an enlightening view of the policies and beliefs on Donald Trump’s formative years. Wish this book had been more widely publicized before 2016!
  • Really?

    By Harveyborgia
    Don’t we all have toxic families. Enough already.
  • Inside view of Donald trump’s narcissism, corruption, and ignorance.

    By ChromeLuxx
    Like it or not, Mary is a family member with the ultimate inside candid view of Donald. His behaviour and characteristics, public and otherwise, provide proof of this book’s accuracy. It quite informative as to the origin of the narcissism , corruption, and ignorance that went into the building of the to-be dictator known as Donald trump.
  • Listen to Mary

    By Oly reader
    Mary hit it right on the head! Donald is a sick man. Those GOP folks who enabled him need to be ashamed.
  • Good history background on Trump family

    By Cristen Marcos
    It gives you an inside look from the authors perspective into what was like to grow up in that family. Everything she describes of Trump is true because we all lived through it. It’s a shame we had to, but we did. Good book for everyone to read, specially parents, so that we don’t have to go through 4 years of misery again and another capitol insurrection.
  • Great

    What can I say?
  • Fantastic read

    By Lotionlex7
    I thought the book was fantastic! Mary describes “Donald” exactly how he really is,( “perfect “ ) as he would say! Unfortunately I don’t think there’s any chance he will ever take any responsibility for his failures to lead and unite our country, he is not capable. Pathetic.
