President Trump's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, can be heard sharply criticizing her brother in a conversation secretly recorded by her niece, Mary Trump. In audio obtained by The Washington Post, Barry is heard saying her brother "has no principles" and "only wants to appeal to his base," while specifically lamenting the Trump administration's actions at the U.S.-Mexico border. The recording also appears to confirm that Barry was the source of one of the most publicized moments from Mary Trump's recently published tell-all book about her uncle. Barry, who described her brother as a "brat" as a child, claimed the president, after beginning his college education at Fordham University, "got into University of Pennsylvania because he had somebody take the exams."
