Release of Mary Trump’s tell-all book moved up to next week

The publisher of the tell-all book written by President Trump’s niece announced Monday that the memoir would be released two weeks earlier than expected as a result of “high demand and extraordinary interest.”

The publisher, Simon & Schuster, said Monday that Mary Trump’s “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” would be published July 14 instead of July 28.

The announcement comes as Mary Trump, a 55-year-old clinical psychologist, is locked in a legal battle with the president’s brother, Robert Trump, over the book’s publication. Robert Trump has sought to block “Too Much and Never Enough,” claiming Mary Trump would be violating a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) by publishing it.

That NDA was signed by Mary Trump, the president and other members of the Trump family as part of the settlement following litigation over the estate of the president’s father, Fred Trump.

President Trump told Axios in June that his niece is “not allowed to write a book.”

The book is said to contain damaging details about the Trump family.

“In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric,” Simon & Schuster said in the release announcing the new publication date. The company also released a photo of the book’s cover.

A judge in New York issued a temporary restraining order blocking the book’s publication last week but an appeals court later lifted the order, allowing the publisher to move forward with the book’s publication. Mary Trump’s attorneys filed an affidavit on Thursday arguing that blocking the book’s publication would be unconstitutional because it would violate her First Amendment rights. 

She argues that she “never believed” an NDA signed in the early 2000s regarding a dispute over her grandfather’s will “could possibly restrict me from telling the story of my life or publishing a book discussing anything contained in the Book, including the conduct and character of my uncle, the sitting President of the United States.”

Trump’s memoir is expected to reveal, among other things, that she was a primary source for The New York Times’s Pulitzer Prize-winning exposé on the Trump family’s finances and Donald Trump’s taxes.

“Too Much and Never Enough” follows closely on the heels of “The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir,” a memoir from former Trump national security adviser John Bolton that paints a highly critical picture of the president and his administration.
