Trump went off on Mary and his former national security advisor, John Bolton, who have both sold staggering numbers of books savaging the president as a sociopath unfit for office.
“I am the ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club,” Trump cracked.
“First I have lowlife dummy John Bolton, a war mongering fool, violating the law (he released massive amounts of Classified Information) and an NDA in order to build badly needed credibility and make a few dollars, which….will all end up going to the government anyway,” he wrote in a tweet thread.
“Next up is Mary Trump, a seldom seen niece who knows little about me, says untruthful things about my wonderful parents (who couldn’t stand her!) and me, and violated her NDA,” he went on.
“She also broke the Law by givng [sic] out my….Tax Returns. She’s a mess! Many books have been written about me, some good, some bad.”
Bolton’s book from inside the White House, “The Room Where It Happened,” reached No. 1 on USA TODAY’s best-sellers list earlier this month, selling more than 780,000 copies in its first week.
The Trump administration fought tooth and nail to stop the release of the bombshell, in which Bolton laments, “I am hard pressed to identify any single Trump decision during my tenure that wasn’t driven by re-election calculations.”
Mary Trump’s book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” — which Trump’s camp had also tried to block from hitting the shelves — provides an unflattering insider account of Trump’s childhood and an analysis of his psyche.
She writes that her uncle is the result of “one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families” and was emotionally scarred by his “toxic” relationship with his father, the late developer Fred Trump.
Trump is predicting more ink to be spilled in the future.
“Both happily and sadly, there will be more to come!” he wrote of his future biographers.
