Mary Trump, President’s nephew and daughter of her late brother, Fred Trump Jr., have written a book described as “the authoritative, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the poisonous family that made it.” The book will be released on July 28, according to book publisher Simon & Schuster.
Simon & Schuster declined to comment Sunday night. CNN had previously contacted Mary Trump to comment.
Trump has dealt with several unflattering depictions of his presidency written by former staff, including a book that will soon be published by former national security adviser John Bolton. Mary Trump’s book is the first of the family members to criticize the President.
The president has not read his upcoming niece’s book, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Friday.
According to the description of the book, Mary Trump tells how her uncle “refused and mocked” his father, Fred Trump Sr., “when he began to surrender to Alzheimer’s.”
The president called the accusations “completely wrong” in his interview with Axios.
“Totally wrong; on the contrary,” he said. “Actually, the opposite. I’ve always had a great relationship. I didn’t know he said that. That’s a shameful thing to say.”
