Are there any anti-Trump novels

"False Narcissist": Book about US President Trump a bestseller

"I cannot let him destroy my country," said Mary Trump of her famous uncle Donald, putting her concerns on paper. The book has the telling title: "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man" - in German, for example: "Too much and never enough: How my family created the most dangerous man in the world".

Already on the day of publication, almost a million readers had access. The sales figure of 950,000 copies also included pre-orders as well as digital and audio versions, as announced by the New York publisher Simon & Schuster.

In her notes, Mary Trump describes her uncle as a lying and cold-hearted narcissist. Donald Trump meets all the criteria for this, writes the president's niece. Even in high school, he paid someone to write a test for him - so that he could later visit the respected business management academy Wharton himself. Trump uses lies as a way of "self-glorification" in order to present himself better than he really is, Mary Trump continued. She compares her uncle to a three-year-old who knows he has never been loved. The psychologist extensively spreads the complicated family history of the Trumps on 240 pages. Several US media had previously quoted from the book with relish.

Psychologist Mary Trump doesn’t leave her uncle in good shape

Mary Trump is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president's older brother. He died in 1981 at the age of 42 as a result of his alcohol addiction. Another brother of the president tried to stop the publication by legal means. But Robert Trump failed at the last minute with his application for an injunction in a court in New York.

He had justified his lawsuit with the fact that Mary Trump violated a confidentiality agreement with her book. This was closed in connection with the estate regulation of her grandfather - the father of the president. Donald Trump has also described the planned publication as illegal with reference to the confidentiality agreement. Judge Greenwald now found that only the financial aspect of the estate settlement had been confidential. In Germany, Heyne-Verlag will bring the work onto the market on August 31st.
