Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man is a new book claiming to reveal Mr Trump’s “family secrets”. Written by the President’s niece Mary Trump the tell-all book is the latest to reveal secrets about the controversial US President, with former national security advisor John Bolton releasing another exposé last month.
Mary Trump suggests that President Trump’s personality has been shaped by the parenting of the President’s dad Fred.
Ms Trump said: “Child abuse is, in some sense, the expectation of ‘too much’ or ‘not enough’.
“Donald directly experienced the ‘not enough’ in the loss of connection to his mother at a crucial development stage.”
The president’s mother, also called Mary, who suffered from health issues from an emergency hysterectomy.
The book, which was quickly rubbished by the White House, suggests this made Fred Trump the sole provider in the family, with Donald and his siblings dependent on him.

Ms Trump added: “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.”
Ms Trump also accuses Donald’s father of being a “high-functioning sociopath”, as well as racist and sexist.
The president has been accused of racism and sexism throughout his time in office, which Ms Trump suggests is a parallel.
Staff from Trump’s administration have rubbished Mary’s book.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said President Trump has “no response, other than it’s a book of falsehoods … ridiculous, absurd allegations that have absolutely no bearing in truth”.
Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews went further in tearing into the book, and said: “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.”
The book also tackled Donald’s relationship with women, and refers to when Mary’s uncle once commented on her body in the 1990’s
When Donald saw his niece in a swimsuit in Mar-a-Lago, Ms Trump claimed he said: “Holy s***, Mary.
She continued: “I was 29 and not easily embarrassed, but my face reddened and I suddenly felt self-conscious.
“I pulled my towel around my shoulders.”
