The family of President Donald J. Trump is suing to block publication of a bombshell memoir by the president’s niece.
Filed on June 23 by the president’s brother Robert S. Trump in Queens County (NY) Surrogate’s Court, the suit seeks an order blocking Trump’s niece Mary L. Trump and her publisher, Simon & Schuster, from proceeding with the publication of Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, citing a sweeping confidentiality clause agreed to into in 2001, when the estate of the the president’s father, Fred Trump Sr., was settled.
On the Simon & Schuster website, the book is described as a “revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him” and claims to explain how Trump “became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.” Mary L. Trump is billed as a trained clinical psychologist as well as the president’s only niece. The book is scheduled for a July 28 publication.
