Donald Trump‘s niece, Mary Trump defended her latest book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, and the claims she made about the US President. While speaking on Woman’s Hour with Jenni Murray, Ms Trump claimed Donald Trump may have multiple personality defects whil being easy to manipulate. Ms Trump argued she made these claims based on her knowledge as a psychologist and personal experiences with President Trump.
Ms Trump said: “Donald Trump is a deeply damaged man.
“A man who constantly needs to have his ego propped up.
“He is so desperate to be admired that it is quite easy to manipulate him and that is a grave concern.”
The Woman’s hour host then read an extract from the book that claims the US President could be a narcissist.
She questioned why Ms Trump was so confident in her bold claims against the President.
Ms Murray read: “You write I have no problem Donald a narcissist.
“A case could be made that he also meets the criteria for anti-social personality disorder, dependent personality disorder and he may have a long undiagnosed learning disability.
“I am sure Donald Trump would absolutely deny any such bold claims.
Ms Trump continued to defend her accusations and claimed she stood by them.
She said: “I don’t think anything I say in the book is a stretch and I do my best to back it up with historical examples of past behaviours.
“I don’t directly diagnose Donald Trump, I don’t think it is my place.
“Basically what I set out to do was outline possible scenarios in helping people understand his behaviour and give it context.
