President Trump says Mary Trump’s ‘not exactly a family favorite’ and calls her tell-all book ‘a lie’ [Video]

  • President Donald Trump defended his family and slammed his niece’s tell-all book, describing it as “so stupid and so vicious.”
  • Trump said that it hurt him more that the book attacked his parents, who he described as good people.
  • He remarked that Mary Trump was “very scarred” and “not much of a family person.”

President Donald Trump slammed his niece’s tell-all book as “so stupid and so vicious” and defended his family in a new interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

Mary Trump’s tell-all book, entitled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” stated harsh details about the president’s family.

She described the president’s father, Fred Trump, as a “hard-functioning sociopath” who psychologically damaged his son.

“She was not exactly a family favorite. We didn’t have a lot of respect or like for her,” Trump told host Chris Wallace. “I would’ve never said that except she writes a book that’s so stupid and so vicious, and it’s a lie. My father was a great, wonderful man.”

He then remarked that he’s now “glad” that he didn’t spend much time with Mary Trump.

When asked if it hurt him to be attacked by a family member, Trump responded, “It hurts me more about attacking my father, not being kind to my mother.”

“I have a mother who was like a saint. She was incredible. She was an incredible woman. And she was nasty even to my mother. She’s a very scarred person. She was not much of a family person,” Trump continued.

Trump also defended his father.

He said that as a New York real estate developer, his father “liked to win.” He added that while his father was tough, he was “tough on all of the kids.”

“I think he was the most solid person I’ve ever met. And he was a very good person,” the president continued. “He was a very, very good person. He was strong, but he was good.”

Trump remarked, “For her to say, I think the word she used was psychopath, what a disgrace. She ought to be ashamed of herself. That book is a lie.”

After facing legal hurdles from the Trump family, including a claim that she violated a non-disclosure agreement, Mary Trump’s book was published last week.

Nearly a million copies were sold on its first day of publication.
