Mary Trump, the niece of President Trump, has said she heard her uncle use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs so many times while she was growing up.
Mary Trump recently hit the limelight after releasing a blockbuster new book, ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.’
In the book, she makes many allegations about Donald Trump and the Trump family, but most of the allegations have been denied by Trump’s family and the White House.
For a while there was speculation that Trump used the n-word behind-the-scenes during the filming of his hit TV show ‘The Apprentice,’ but the tapes have never surfaced. Speaking to Rachel Maddow on MSNBC, Mary Trump admitted she heard her uncle use racial slurs:
‘Of course I did. And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.’
Mary Trump had earlier said in an interview with The Washington Post that her family engaged in bigotry throughout her childhood.
‘Growing up, it was sort of normal to hear them use the n-word or use anti-Semitic expressions,’ she told.
She told The Post that she hasn’t been surprised by the president’s racist language nor policies, including separating children from their parents at the southern border.
‘No, the more divisive the better, the cooler,’ she said.
‘It comes easily to him and he thinks it’s going to score him points with the only people who are continuing to support him,’ Mary Trump said.
She described what her family engaged in as ‘a knee-jerk anti-Semitism, a knee-jerk racism.’
‘Homophobia was never an issue because nobody ever talked about gay people, well, until my grandmother called Elton John’ an anti-gay slur,’ she told The Post.
Continuously pressed by Maddow if she had heard the president use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs Mary Trump replied: ‘Yes.’
The White House has rejected Mary’s allegations, calling her book ‘a book of falsehoods’, adding: ‘The president doesn’t use those words.’
Mary Trump, a lesbian, was secretly engaged to a woman and says she never came out as gay because her grandmother Mary said the prospect of Elton John singing at the funeral of Princess Diana was ‘a disgrace’ and called him a ‘little’ six-letter slur.
She also described President Trump’s 2016 campaign as being racist several times in the book.
‘He did tap into a certain bigotry and inchoate rage, which he’s always been good at doing,’ she wrote, pointing to the 1989 New York Times ad the president took out demanding that the Central Park Five – a group of five black suspects who were cleared of assault and rape charges – be executed.
When asked what will happen if her uncle wins a second term, she told the paper, ‘I may be in the Caribbean.’
