Recently, Trump was in the news for trying to block the publication of Mary Trump, his nieces’ book named “Too Much and Never Enough.” He asked for a restraining order to stop the book from being published and said that not doing so would mean a violation of will that she had signed of Fred Trump Sr.
Robert Trump had reported that his niece tried to mischaracterize and sensationalize the relationships within their family.

He also noted that the entire family is proud of President Donald Trump, and Mary’s actions are disgraceful.
