Mary Trump, a psychologist and writer who is the niece of President Donald Trump, said on the eve of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration that the Trumps should be shunned from public life, calling for the Trump brand in a country " completely destroyed "will be a new interview with the MeidasTouch Podcast.
When asked if her cousin, Presidential Advisor Ivanka Trump, might have a future political career, she said: "One of the reasons I hate them all so much is because we have to have these conversations about them, which should be absurd. That was supposed to be a joke. "
"What I would say is that it is entirely up to us," she added. "It's not just Donald, all of his adult children need to be excluded. All access must be withdrawn from you. Everything has to be burned down. They have to be – their brand has to be completely destroyed, even more than they have already destroyed. Companies have to withdraw. New York City has tried to terminate its contract with the Trump Organization. You need to be examined. Donnie (Trump), I believe, should be charged with instigating a riot and all should do nothing but defend themselves against charges. "
"So that's up to us," said Trump. "We can't forget it. Donald has shown the ability of people like him who have his resources, his connections, rehabilitate or stay in the game when they should have been discarded long ago."
Trump, who also spoke of Ivanka, said she was "Come to the conclusion that arrogance makes you stupid. "
“These people are so arrogant they don't understand how things work. They don't understand until after sticking with him the armed uprising"She said, referring to the recent Capitol uprising." You can't say, "Oh, wait a minute, it didn't work."

In 2020, Trump published a book about her uncle and family called "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Made the Most Dangerous Man in the World," which became a national bestseller. She says in the book that she was the anonymous source who revealed the Trump family's tax returns to the New York Times. (The Times later won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the subject.)
Although the Trump family took legal action to block publication of the book, they were ultimately unsuccessful. Last year, President Trump told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that Mary Trump was "not allowed to write" the book because she was bound by a nondisclosure agreement.
"She's not allowed to write a book," Trump said at the time. "You know, when we settled down with her and her brother who I have a good relationship with – she has a brother, Fred, who I have a good relationship with, but when we settled down she has … one overall signed confidentiality. "
President Trump referred to a nondisclosure agreement his brother Robert Trump said Mary Trump signed a lawsuit over the Trump family's estate in 1999. A judge later found that Mary Trump was not bound by the nondisclosure agreement.
