Mary Trump Warns Us About Trump's Next Move

Donald Trump's niece, Mary Trump, wrote a tell-all memoir about her family in the summer of 2020 — and now, post-election, she has even more to say about her uncle. Her book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man sold over 1.35 million copies in the first week of publication, per The Guardian, and she plans on writing another one soon, focusing on America's healing after her uncle's presidency. 

Mary believes that the president will leave the country reeling, and not just for what he did throughout his four-year presidency, but for his actions in the wake of the 2020 election. (Donald has infamously stuck to the narrative that he beat President-elect Joe Biden, and has thus far refused to concede.) She said on CNN's Cuomo Prime Time, "He's going to put considerable energy, as least as long as he's able to, into delegitimizing Biden's win and his administration." That's just the beginning, too, according to the rest of the things she's said in interviews recently. Take a look below.

Mary Trump thinks Donald Trump doesn't believe he lost

In early December 2020, Mary Trump told the women of The View that she thinks her uncle, President Donald Trump refuses to accept the reality of the situation. She told the women that she thinks he is "somebody who knows that his best option is to cling to power no matter who gets hurt in the process." Mary, who grew up with the president around, thinks that he just doesn't know how to process the loss. 

"On the one hand, it is impossible for Donald to believe that he lost. You know, he's lost before in his life, but he's never had to be in a situation in which he can't somehow turn that loss into a win, either through cheating or buying his way out of a jam or using somebody else's connections and power," she said. Mary added, "There's literally nothing he can do about this, so it's sort of unfathomable, because in my family, losing was literally the worst thing you could do. So it's putting enormous amounts of pressure on him. So on the one hand, he can't admit it to himself because that would suggest that there's no way for him to get out of this mess."

Donald Trump said he might concede under one condition

Mary Trump didn't even stop there, either. She has obviously been closely watching her uncle, Donald Trump, as he processes the results of the 2020 election. She said on The View: "He's making himself look like a sore loser, he's behaving like an immature bully. It is going to increase his irrelevance after the inauguration and I think it increases the urgency for holding him accountable when he no longer has the protection of the Oval Office."

Trump has in fact refused to outright concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden, though he recently allowed the General Services Administration to initiate the transfer of power according to protocol. His legal team, spearheaded by Rudy Giuliani, continues to allege that there was voter fraud despite a glaring lack of evidence. All of their filings have been struck down by the courts, as per The New York Times.

The electoral college votes on Dec. 14, 2020, however, and Trump said that he would in fact concede if they also declared Biden the winner.

Mary Trump, a psychologist, thinks her uncle has 'psychological disorders'

Still, Mary Trump has her doubts about her uncle Donald Trump. She, a clinical psychologist in addition to author and critic of her uncle, attempted to diagnose the president on The View. She said: "He has serious psychological disorders, which wouldn't have been of any interest to us if he had no power and if he didn't have the ability to inflict pain on other people. The biggest problem for us now is because of those undiagnosed and untreated disorders, and his appalling lack of empathy, people are dying unnecessarily every day. Children were stripped from their parents and incarcerated for no reason." Of course, there is no evidence or confirmation that Trump has any mental health disorder.

It seems like Donald Trump and his team are starting the process of listening to the experts, helping the incoming administration, and doing what's best for the country — at least, based on his statement about transferring power to President-elect Joe Biden. But if anything Mary has said is true, it's going to be a long road to then.
