Mr Trump’s niece has stated that she wrote her new book to help topple her uncle’s presidency. The book, titled Too Much and Never enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, is released on July 14. The President has been subject of many highly-critical books, most recently from former national security adviser John Bolton. But Ms Trump’s book is the closest to home.
Ms Trump said to news site Axios that President Trump “shredded norms, endangered alliances, and trod upon the vulnerable”.
She added: “It wasn’t enough for me to volunteer at an organisation helping Syrian refugees, I had to take Donald down.”
Due to high demand and national interest, the book’s release has been pushed forward.

Ms Trump alleges in her book that President Trump’s father emotionally abused him.
Ms Trump said: “By limiting Donald’s access to his own feelings and rendering many of them unacceptable, Fred perverted his son’s perception of the world and damaged his ability to live in it.
“Nothing is ever enough.
“This is far beyond garden-variety narcissism; Donald is not simply weak, his ego is a fragile thing that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down that he is nothing of what he claims to be.”
White House deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews has savaged Mary Trump’s claims about her uncle on Tuesday.
Matthews said: “Mary Trump and her book’s publisher may claim to be acting in the public interest, but this book is clearly in the author’s own financial self-interest.
“President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people – why speak out now?
“The President describes the relationship he had with his father as warm and said his father was very good to him.
“He said his father was loving and not at all hard on him as a child.
“Also, the absurd SAT allegation is completely false.
Explaining why she spoke out against her uncle, Mary said to CNN: “Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father.
“I can’t let him destroy my country.”
A source told the Daily Beast that President Trump has considered suing his niece over the book.
Mary Trump signed a non-disclosure agreement in 2001, which states she cannot publish anything about the President.
