The Guardian has obtained a copy of Too Much and Never Enough, which is due out next weekDonald Trump suffered emotional abuse at the hands of his father, according to a bombshell new book written by his niece.Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man by Mary Trump will be published next Tuesday, 14 July. The Guardian obtained a copy.“Child abuse is, in some sense, the expectation of ‘too much’ or ‘not enough’,” the trained clinical psychologist writes. “Donald directly experienced the ‘not enough’ in the loss of connection to his mother at a crucial development stage, which was deeply traumatic.“…Having been abandoned by his mother for at least a year, and having his father fail not only to meet his needs but to make him feel safe or loved, valued or mirrored, Donald suffered deprivations that would scar him for life.“The personality traits that resulted – displays of narcissism, bullying, grandiosity – finally made my grandfather take notice but not in a way that ameliorated any of the horror that had come before.”Mary Trump details serious health problems suffered by Donald Trump’s mother, also called Mary, resulting from an emergency hysterectomy.That, she writes, left the future president and his siblings dependent on his father, Fred Trump, a New York property developer who died in 1999 and who Mary Trump describes as a “high-functioning sociopath”.Fred Trump’s oldest son, also called Fred, died in 1981 in his early 40s, from the effects of alcoholism. His daughter, Mary Trump, now writes that Donald Trump’s character was formed by watching the traumas inflicted on and suffered by his older brother.Donald Trump’s surviving siblings are Robert Trump, a businessman; Maryanne Trump Barry, a retired judge; and Elizabeth Trump Grau, a retired banker.Robert Trump has sued Mary Trump in New York state, claiming a non-disclosure agreement signed in 2001 precludes the publication of her book. The president has said he thinks the NDA means the book cannot come out.Mary Trump has argued in appeal filings that the NDA was based on fraudulent financial information. A hearing was scheduled for Friday.Simon & Schuster was dropped from the suit and subsequently brought its publication date forward by two weeks.Like a White House memoir by former national security adviser John Bolton, also recently published by Simon & Schuster, Mary Trump’s book is now in the public domain.Asked to block Bolton’s book, a federal judge in Washington said “the horse is out of the barn”.

A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 539,000 people worldwide. Over 11.6 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations' outbreaks.
