BOOK REVIEW by OnTheIssues.org:

    This book is a psychoanalysis of Trump by his niece, Dr. Mary Trump, who is a clinical psychologist. A selection from the index indicates Mary's attitude p. 219-20:
      Trump, Donald
      • Empathy lacking in,
      • Knowledge claims of,
      • Muslin ban of,
      • Narcissism of,
      • Racism of,
      • Self-promotion and self-aggrandizement of,
      • As shielded from reality,
    ...and plenty more. Of course the book includes a full analysis of Donald's childhood and his relationship with his father, as one would expect from a clinical psychologist. Mary also offers her own diagnosis of Donald, on p. 12-13 -- she supplements the standard pundit diagnosis of "narcissistic personality disorder" with "antisocial personality disorder" exacerbated by caffeine abuse.

    The Trump family attempted to block publication of this book, based on non-disclourse agreements from 1999 when Mary contested Fred Trump's will. The Trump family failed, and the book was released in July 2020. Mary Trump made the talk-show circuit during the 2020 campaign, describing her diagnosis of President Trump and its political implications.

    One can imagine Thanksgiving dinner at the Trump household does not include Donald sitting at the same table as Mary.
