US President Donald Trump and his niece Mary L. Trump
Mary L. Trump, a psychologist and a niece of US President Donald Trump, has filed a lawsuit against her uncle, accusing him of cheating and depriving her of millions of dollars in inheritance.
The lawsuit was filed in New York State Court on Thursday.
Besides Trump, his sister Maryanne Trump Barry and brother Robert Trump have also been charged in the case. They have been charged with widespread fraud and conspiracy.
The lawsuit alleges that Trump and his siblings controlled the huge property of Mary’s grandfather, Fred Trump, who died in 1999.
Mary Trump’s lawyer said Trump and his siblings have repeatedly lied to Mary about the value of the property and “denied a fair portion of a successor” to her.
However, Trump’s personal lawyer and other members of his family declined to comment.
Earlier, psychologist Mary came to into discussion after writing a book on uncle Trump. “The widely discussed book had sold about 1 million copies on its first day of publication, said the publisher.
The title of Mary Trump’s memoir is ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man’. That is how the most dangerous man in the world came to power from the Trump family, as described in the book by Mary Trump.
Prior to the November US presidential election, the Trump administration made several attempts to prevent the book from being published, however, that was no longer possible.
