Mary Trump, Donald Trump’s niece, is bringing attention to a less-discussed aspect of her uncle’s recent $250 million civil fraud trial. In the latest episode of her show, “The Good In Us,” Mary sheds light on a revelation that she believes was overlooked by the media – Trump allegedly tapping into his children’s accounts to boost his financial standing.
Mary contends that this crucial finding, disclosed during Ivanka’s testimony, went largely unnoticed in the media. She emphasizes that “his own daughter revealed under oath that Donald took money from his own kids to prop up the appearance of his net worth.”
Describing this admission as a “damning revelation,” Mary suggests that it poses a significant threat to the foundation Trump has built, which she characterizes as a “house of cards” supported by exaggeration, years of deception, and media complicity.
MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin expressed her astonishment at this revelation, stating that her “jaw almost dropped” when she learned about it. Mary Trump goes on to detail how Donald Trump entered into agreements with each of his adult children, where they pledged their assets to help him meet financial obligations tied to his contract with Deutsche Bank.
Mary highlights specific instances, such as Ivanka and Jared taking out a $15 million loan on their $24 million mansion and other financial arrangements made by Donny and Eric. She questions the significance of these decisions, pointing out that obtaining mortgages on properties seems peculiar for individuals associated with significant wealth.
In Mary’s view, these financial maneuvers are crucial for investigators, urging New York Attorney General Letitia James to scrutinize Ivanka’s loan and financial dealings in addition to holding Donald Trump accountable for the acknowledged fraud. Mary Trump concludes by stating that the “rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten tree.”
