Mary Trump, the president's niece who spoke out against him in her book Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man, filed a lawsuit against him in New York on Thursday, accusing the president and his siblings of fraud. The lawsuit claims the president, his sister Maryanne Trump Barry, and his late brother Robert Trump "concocted scheme after scheme to cheat on their taxes, swindle their business partners, and jack up rents on their low income tenants." Mary Trump also claims that after the death of her father, Fred Trump Jr., the president and his siblings "fleeced her of tens of millions of dollars" of her inheritance. The White House has said Mary Trump is spreading falsehoods, and denied her claims of fraud.
