Publishing House Simon & Schuster announced on Monday that a tell-all book written by Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, will be released two weeks early.
The publishing house says that “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” which paints a dark portrait of Donald Trump and his family’s history, will be published on July 14 instead of its original publishing date of July 28.
The announcement that the book will hit bookstores early comes amid a court battle with her uncle Robert Trump, Donald Trump’s younger brother. Robert Trump filed a suit to block the book’s publication. In his court filings, Robert Trump argued that Mary Trump could not publish her book because of a confidentiality agreement signed after the settlement of Fred Trump Sr’s will.
On Wednesday a New York state appeals judge ruled that the book can be moved forward with publishing.
A spokesperson for Mary Trump bashed Donald Trump for trying to silence his niece.
“The act by a sitting president to muzzle a private citizen is just the latest in a series of disturbing behaviors which have already destabilized a fractured nation in the face of a global pandemic,” Chris Bastardi said. “If Mary cannot comment, one can only help but wonder: what is Donald Trump so afraid of?”
Last week, Simon & Schuster stated that 75,000 copies of her book have already been shipped ahead of the publication date. The publisher states that the book “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.”
Last week, Mary Trump stated that she never thought signing the settlement agreement would bar her from telling her life story.
“I decided that my family story had deep national relevance when Donald Trump was elected as president of the United States, and so I decided to write a book,” she said.
