For those who were camping over the weekend, we have a slight update on the Mary Trump memoir.
On Friday, she spoke out publicly about the court battle over Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man for the first time.
The New York Times reports that Mary Trump describes her book as having “deep national relevance.”
And in the affidavit she filed Thursday night to fight the hold still placed on her (though not her book’s publisher), she asserted that the contract being used against her was based on fraud.
The contract in question revolved around the will of Fred Trump Sr. — Mary Trump’s grandfather and Donald Trump’s father — and a confidentiality agreement that Mary Trump signed over its settlement.
Mary Trump says she has since learned that Donald Trump and his siblings (excluding Mary’s father) lied to her about how much they were worth.
One of those siblings, Robert Trump, filed the request to block the book's publication; it was granted Tuesday and lifted in part on Wednesday, with publisher Simon & Schuster released from the restraint and Mary Trump remaining subject to it.
Too Much and Never Enough is now being released July 14, two weeks earlier than initially scheduled, and is already on many bestseller lists.
