New York justice slashes book sale on Trump's family life

The New York State Court ruled on Tuesday, 30, temporarily suspending the publication of a book on the relationship between the President of the United States and his family. The work is written by psychologist Mary Trump, Donald Trump’s niece. The president’s defense alleges that the publication of the book was in violation of a 2001 confidentiality agreement.

Judge Hal Greenwald of Dutchess County issued a temporary restraining order against Mary and publisher Simon & Schuster at the request of Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother and the psychologist’s uncle.

Robert claims that the book, titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, scheduled to be released on Sunday, 28, violates a confidentiality agreement involving Mary and the family patriarch, Fred Trump Sr.

The agreement robert refers to was signed in 2001 by Mary in the context of the distribution of the inheritance of Fred Trump Sr., who had died two years earlier. According to this agreement, the psychologist could not discuss publicly about the relationships between her uncles and aunts.

Mary and publisher Simon & Schuster appealed the restraining order less than three hours after it was issued. A new hearing in the case is scheduled to be held on July 10.

The plaintiff’s attorney, Theodore Boutrous, called Judge Greenwald’s decision a “pre-political restriction on political discourse” and argues that his client’s right to freedom of expression, protected by the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, was being “categorically violated.”

“This book, which deals with issues of great public importance about a president-in-office in an election year, should not be suppressed even for a day,” Boutrous added.

According to simon & schuster’s official website, Too much and Never Enough is a “revealing and authoritative portrait of Donald Trump and the toxic family that created him.”

” (The book) sheds light on the dark history of the (Trump) family in order to explain how (Donald Trump) became the man who now threatens health, economic security and world society,” he concludes.

A phD in psychology from Adelphi University in New York State, Mary is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president’s older brother, who died in the early 1980s from alcoholism —Trump repeatedly mentions him when he talks about his vow not to drink alcohol and about his anti-drug policies.

Mary is known for criticizing the president. Shortly after Trump’s election in November 2016, the psychologist posted on her Twitter that it had been the “worst day of her life” and that she “feared for the failure of the American experiment,” probably referring to liberal democracy.

This is one of the worst nights of my life. What is wrong with this country? I fear the American experiment has failed.

The psychologist also called Trump’s opponent in those elections, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “an extraordinary human being and public servant.”

As Forbes magazine reports, Mary demonstrates on her Twitter profile to frequently support the Democratic Party and gun control policies.

In addition to her social media stance critical of the president and conservatism, the psychologist also reportedly leaked to The New York Times financial documents of the president that were published in a Pulitzer Prize-winning report in 2018 about Trump’s tax evasion practices.

The Daily Beast reports that Too Much and Never Enough reveals the behind the scenes of this leak.
