Donald Trump's brother dissed Melania when he brazenly brought the then
28-year-old model to a family Father's Day meal, his niece claims in her
explosive tell-all book.
Trump had brought his girlfriend and future wife to the family gathering at his
apartment in Trump Tower in New York City in June of 1998.
At the time, he was still married to his second wife Marla Maples, who he
wouldn't divorce for another year.
Donald's niece Mary recalls her uncle Robert Trump noted that Melania barely
spoke throughout the entire meal, she writes in her new memoir Too Much and
Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man.
But when Mary speculated that it might be because the Slovenian model's English
wasn't very good, Robert scoffed and told her: 'No, she knows what she's here
Mary writes she had never met Melania before the gathering. She described
Donald's home as being 'even colder and less like a home' than the Trump family
home in Queens, New York.
Mary, 55, writes: 'Melania was five years younger than I was. She sat slightly
sideways next to Donald with her ankles crossed. I was struck by how smooth she
As they began to talk Donald remarked that Mary 'dropped out of college', which
Mary admitted was true.
Donald went on to say that Mary's behavior 'was really bad for a while' and 'she
started doing drugs', which was not true, Mary writes.
Still, it piqued Melania's interest and she said 'really?'
Donald added that Mary was a 'total disaster' as he embellished the story
further, according to the memoir.
Trump and Melania married in 2005 after Trump and Maples divorced in 1999.
Mary's anecdote is just the tip of the iceberg of the 200 page book, which damns
the entire Trump family.
She claims Donald ogled her when she was 29 years old and in a swimsuit at
Mar-a-Lago, his Florida estate, with Donald allegedly saying: 'Holy s**t, Mary,
Mary also describes attending a meal in the Executive Dining room of the White
House in April 2017 and claims the President made a crass gag about his son Eric
and Lara Trump.
By that point they had been together for eight years, three of which they were
The President said: 'Lara there, I barely even know who the f*** she was,
honestly, but then she gave a great speech during the campaign in Georgia
But despite her disdain of her uncle, Mary sat at his desk while visiting the
White House in April 2017.
Mary is seen smiling as she sat at the Resolute Desk in a photo exclusively
obtained by DailyMail.com.
The image shows a photo of Mary's grandfather on the shelf behind her - a man
she professes to despise as well.
The picture was taken in April 2017 when Mary visited the White House to
celebrate the 80th birthday of her aunt Maryanne, a year after her uncle took
It may surprise readers of her book, which 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.
But despite all these misgivings - Mary tweeted in 2016 the election was the
'worst night of my life' - she accepted the invitation to visit her uncle in the
She put aside the 20-year grudge with the Trumps that dates back to 1999 when
they stated in court papers that she was already a multi-millionaire thanks to
payments from the family's real estate fortune.
The April 2017 trip included a free night at the Trump International Hotel in
Washington, where basic rooms cost around $300 a night.
In Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous
Man, Mary describes walking past paintings of former First Ladies inside the
building on her way to meet the President.
She stopped at one of Hillary Clinton and silently thought to herself 'how this
could have happened?'
The whole Trump family was there including Donald's son Eric, who didn't
recognize Mary because they hadn't seen each other since he was in high school.
Mary says they all posed for photos in the Oval Office, including Mary who
mugged up for one behind the Resolute Desk.
After looking at the photo of herself later she saw Fred Sr and describes him as
'hovering behind me like a ghost'.
Mary portrays the Trump family as deeply damaged people, starting with Fred Sr
and his wife Mary Ann and filtering down to their five children.
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.
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 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'.
The Trumps saw 'cheating as a way of life' and empathy was for weaklings.
Mary, a trained psychologist, diagnoses her uncle as a sociopath due to his
'chronic criminality, arrogance, and disregard for others'.
She writes that 'Donald may also meet some of the criteria for dependent
personality disorder' as well.
The hallmarks are: inability to take responsibility, discomfort when being alone
and going to extreme lengths to obtain support from others.
