Mary Trump, niece to the American President, has accused her uncle of being a traitor and of attempting to mount a coup, in the process doing massive damage to his country that will take a long time to recover from.
Explaining to Channel 4 News what her uncle must be going through as he waits out the vote count in the remaining battleground states, Mary said her uncle was ‘freaking out’.
“He is in a unique position. He is for the first time in his life faced with an undeniable loss out of which nobody can help him,” said Mary, who is a psychologist and also author of a recent book called ‘Too Much – Never Enough: How my family created the world’s most dangerous man’.
“He can continue to do a lot of damage even though, when and if Vice-President Biden becomes President-Elect Biden, he still has the power of the presidency for the next 76 days and we need to prepare for anything that he might have in mind because one thing that’s important to remember about Donald is that if he thinks he’s going down, he’s going to try and take the rest of us down with him,” she said.
