US President Donald Trump’s niece Mary L. Trump revealed that she heard her uncle use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs.
Mary Trump, author of a scathing new book said, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” She made the allegations during an interview with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Mary Trump said the president is “clearly racist” and described growing up in a family of “knee-jerk” racism.
When asked if that was a generalization about her family’s casual bigotry or if she’d actually heard her uncle use racist language she said:
“Oh yeah, of course I did. And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.”
Mary Trump then confirmed that she’d heard the president use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Matthews rebutted Mary Trump’s allegation. “This is a book of falsehoods, plain and simple,” Matthews said.
“The President doesn’t use those words.”
In an interview to Fox News President Trump blasted his niece’s book. “She was not exactly a family favorite. We didn’t have a lot of respect or like for her. I would’ve never said that except she writes a book that’s so stupid and so vicious, and it’s a lie,” Trump said.
There have been allegations in 2016 and in 2018 about the President using the n-word.
Mary Trump, 55, has long been estranged from her family following a dispute over inheritance, among other things. Her book – published Tuesday and an instant bestseller – so worried her family that the president’s brother unsuccessfully tried to block its publication in court. Her father, Fred Jr. – the president’s older brother – died of an alcohol-related illness in 1981, when she was 16 years old.
“I absolutely believe [it] would be the end of the American experiment. I do not believe there’s any coming back from this,” she said when asked if President Trump is reelected in November.
