The tell-all book has plenty of scathing attacks on Trump which contains instances from his childhood, early life, and other details from his life.
Mary Trump has been in the media's eye after stepping out with a tell-all book about Donald Trump a few weeks ago. In the run-up to the release of her book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, Trump's niece has made explosive statements including when she said the current president was emotionally abused by his father. She has since released several excerpts of Trump's life to build anticipation for her book, which launched on July 14, reported People.

Now, post the launch, Mary sat down for an interview with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday to shed some light on her bestseller, which has disparaged Trump on various occasions. In the interview that aired on World News Tonight, the 55-year-old spoke in scathing terms about her uncle saying he wasn't fit to run the country. "He is utterly incapable of leading this country and it's dangerous to allow him to do so ... based on what I've seen my entire adult life." The interview gave us insights into the Trump household, who for all the media hullabaloo, has very little coverage on the inner workings of the family. At one point in the interview, Mary recalled a 2017 trip to the White House, where she spoke to Trump. Recounting her experience, she wrote in the book: "That was four months in. He already seemed very strained by the pressure. He'd never been in a situation before where he wasn't entirely protected from criticism or accountability or things like that."

She goes on to give more details: "I just remember thinking: He seems tired, he seems — this is not what he signed up for, if he even knows what he signed up for." When asked what she would tell her uncles if she got to meet him again, she said she would ask him to "Resign". Since her book's launch by Simon and Schuster, the book has achieved No. 1 title on Amazon due to it being the subject of high interest and demand, as Trump's younger brother Robert Trump filed a lawsuit citing a 2001 confidentiality agreement. However, a judge gave a ruling against Robert which made the way for the memoir's release.

According to the niece, Trump's sociopathic tendencies come from his father Fred Trump Sr. who reportedly suffered from similar psychological behaviors. Her father Fred Trump Jr. was the exception as he died at 42 in 1982 due to alcohol abuse. Too Much and Never Enough delves deeper and gives us insight into Trump's childhood, early life, schooling, and business career where the writer even claims that her uncle cheated on his SATs and didn't even visit his dying brother in the hospital. Elaborating on how she is the only one to come out with an attack on Trump, she wrote in one of the early chapters: "No one knows how Donald came to be who he is better than his own family. Unfortunately, almost all of them remain silent out of loyalty or fear. I'm not hindered by either of those."

According to PEOPLE, an excerpt from the book reads: "Donald's monstrosity is the manifestation of the very weakness within him that he's been running from his entire life. For him, there has never been any option but to be positive, to project strength, no matter how illusory, because doing anything else carries a death sentence; my father's short life is evidence of that." She elaborates: "But, he can never escape the fact that he is and always will be a terrified little boy." The bestseller is not without its haters, however, as Trump's brother Robert called it a book full of "falsehoods" and a "disgrace." Per the New York Times, he said: "Her attempt to sensationalize and mischaracterize our family relationship after all of these years for her own financial gain is both a travesty and injustice to the memory of my late brother, Fred, and our beloved parents."
