Ex-President Donald Trump may have left the White House in January, but the deluge of memoirs that have hit the shelves since then have kept us up to date on the inner workings of one of America’s most divisive families.
“I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw at the Trump White House,” published in October, detailed how Jared and Ivanka Trump attempted to sabotage a meeting with Her Royal Majesty in the past. Stephanie Grisham, the novelist, and former White House press secretary remarked, “I finally figured out what was going on.” “Jared and Ivanka mistook themselves for the American royal family.” Given how enthusiastically the public has devoured any media nuggets regarding the Trump family, there will undoubtedly be plenty more secrets revealed in the future. Meanwhile, persons outside of Trumps’ inner circle, i.e. their extended family members, have the same desire for juicy information as Trumps’ inner circle.
With that in mind, let’s discuss Mary Trump, Donald’s estranged niece, who wrote a memoir called “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” about the alleged horrific incidents she observed within the Trump dynasty. According to Mary, her family’s discrimination caused her to hide her sexuality.
In her 2020 book, Mary Trump doesn’t hold back in condemning the whole Trump family, tracing the history of abuse stretching back to patriarch Fred Trump, or Donald Trump’s father. Thanks to her Ph.D. in clinical psychology, Mary identifies Fred as “a high-functioning sociopath, to whom love meant nothing,” according to USA Today. Trump’s interactions were riddled with emotional abuse as a result of Fred’s brutality.
According to a 2020 interview with The Washington Post, Mary says that the family was also ready to use discriminatory slurs. “Growing up, it was sort of normal to hear them use the n-word or use anti-Semitic expressions,” she claimed, adding that she believes her uncle, Donald Trump, to be racist. “It comes easily to him, and he thinks it’s going to score him points with the only people who are continuing to support him,” Mary added.
Mary didn’t agree with her family’s habit of disparaging others, the insults didn’t affect her personally until they did. “Homophobia was never an issue because nobody ever talked about gay people, well, until my grandmother called Elton John the f-word,” she explained. As a gay woman, Mary was frightened by her grandmother’s words and chose to conceal her true sexuality from her family. “I’d realized it was better that she didn’t know I was living with … a woman,” Mary wrote in her memoir.
Mary Trump, on the other hand, knew instinctively not to tell her family when she realized that she was gay. “Even though homophobia wasn’t really explicit in my family, growing up, no one talked about homosexuality one way or another,” Donald Trump’s niece explained. “My family was so anti-everything, anything that was different from them. So, I just assumed they were antigay, and that was something they would not tolerate.”
Mary once shared that hiding her sexual orientation didn’t take a toll since I really didn’t have such a close relationship with my family,” Mary said, adding that “my friends have been my family throughout my life.”
She has “long been estranged from her family following a dispute over inheritance, among other things,” which has allowed the Trumps to attack her memoir, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” “This is a book of falsehoods, plain and simple,” former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany stated.

No matter how Mary attacks her estranged family members, it is absolutely her right to share her sexual identity any way that she is comfortable with.
