Donald Trump's nephew says he was BLINDSIDED by his sister Mary Trump's tell-all book

Turncoat presidential niece Mary Trump has found another adversary in her family — her own brother who was on her side when she sued the family two decades ago.

Fred Trump III said Mary is still bound by a nondisclosure agreement with the Trump family and should not have written the blockbuster book that she is planning to publish next month.

The book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, threatens to tell all about President Donald Trump’s rise to power and expose all the family’s closest secrets. Pre-publicity for the book says Mary, 55, will describe a ‘a ‘nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse’.

In a statement issued exclusively to DailyMail.com by the president’s son Eric Trump, Fred said: ‘At the time that our lawsuit with the family was resolved, Mary and I had each received a generous financial settlement from the family and were more than willing to agree to execute non-disclosure provisions, all of which had been approved and recommended by our attorneys and advisors at that time.’

‘In my opinion, those provisions of the 2001 settlement agreement are still in effect and binding today and I have continued to honor them.’

In his statement Fred said he and his family ‘have a strong relationship with our extended family and have had no involvement or interest in the preparation of this book.’

And he said that Mary’s claim that his son William — who suffers from cerebral palsy — has been cut off by the president and his three surviving siblings is false.

‘As is also known by Mary, our son William has been very well provided for financially for many years through the William Trump Medical Fund by my aunts and uncles, Maryanne, Donald, Elizabeth, and Robert; for which we are very appreciative.’

DailyMail.com’s attempts to contact Fred Trump were unsuccessful. 

One estimate says that William, who turns 21 next week, receives up to three-quarters of a million dollars a year for his condition.

Just last week, when news of the proposed book first broke, Donald Trump said he had a good relationship with Fred III.

The president and his siblings say they would suffer ‘irreparable harm’ if Mary’s book is published. In an application for a temporary restraining order, they say: ‘No amount of monetary damages can ameliorate the loss that will be suffered if Mary Trump is allowed to violate the settlement agreement and publish’.

Mary Trump, who lives in Rockville Centre on Long Island, New York, has been in hiding since news of the book was revealed last week. DailyMail.com tracked her down to her $2 million vacation home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, on Tuesday. She would not discuss the book.

‘There will be a time and a place,’ she said, adding: ‘Have a great day. Enjoy. It’s a beautiful spot.’

President Trump says Mary is bound by the nondisclosure agreement that was signed in the light of a court case brought by Mary and Fred following the death of their grandfather — the president’s father — Fred Trump Sr.

The family patriarch had all but cut them out of his will following the death of their father Fred Jr. in 1981. In their 2000 lawsuit Fred III and Mary said: ‘At the time the will was executed, my grandfather was suffering from senile dementia and significant memory impairment.

‘My brother and I believe that the will is the product of undue influence and coercion by defendants upon my grandfather, who clearly lacked the requisite mental capacity to make a will.’

Trump and his family are desperate to stop the book from ever seeing the light of day. Robert Trump — the president’s younger brother — said he was ‘deeply disappointed’ with Mary, adding: ‘Her attempt to sensationalize and mischaracterize our family relationship after all of these years for her own financial gain is both a travesty and injustice to the memory of my late brother, Fred, and our beloved parents. I and the rest of my entire family are so proud of my wonderful brother, the president, and feel that Mary’s actions are truly a disgrace.’

Fred III and Mary alleged the Trumps acted in 'retaliation' for them challenging the will of Fred Trump Sr. (pictured with Donald in 1988) who died in 1999. Mary alleged that Fred Sr. was suffering from 'significant mental impairment' when he rewrote the will eight years before his death

Publisher Simon & Schuster said in a statement to DailyMail.com: ‘As the plaintiff and his attorney well know, the courts take a dim view of prior restraint, and this attempt to block publication will meet the same fate as those that have gone before.’

Just last week, a court declined to stop the release of a book by former National Security Advisor John Bolton.

The publishers said Mary — a registered Democrat — ‘has written a compelling personal story of worldwide significance, and we look forward to helping her tell her story.’

Mary and Fred III filed suit against Donald and Robert Trump and their sister Maryanne Trump Barry in 2000, for wrongful termination of medical benefits and coverage. Conversations with 83-year-old Trump Barry, a retired federal appeals court judge, are said to be included in Mary’s book.

TIMELINE OF FALLOUT BETWEEN TRUMP SIBLINGS AND THEIR NIECE AND NEPHEW 

For decades: Fred Sr agrees to pay Fred Trump Jr’s family’s medical bills.

1970: Fred Trump Jr and his wife Lisa Trump divorce.

1982: Fred Jr dies aged 42 after a lifetime of battling alcohol addiction. Fred Sr agrees to cover Lisa’s medical expenses and those of her children, the lawsuit states. 

September 18, 1991: Fred Sr changes his will. Mary and Fred III allege he did so under the undue influence of Donald and the rest of the family.

June 25, 1999: Fred Sr dies. His estate goes into probate.

June 30, 1999: William Trump, Fred III’s son, is born with severe disabilities and seizures which requires extensive medical treatment.

Early 2000: Mary and Fred III challenge Fred Sr’s will because they claim he was manipulated into cutting them out by Donald, Robert and Maryanne.

March 30, 2000: Trump family informs Mary, Fred III and their mother that their health insurance benefits, which they had all their lives, would be terminated on May 1 that year. Fred III’s son William’s benefits would terminate on April 1 – just two days later.

April 27, 2000: Fred III, his wife, Mary and their mother sue the Trump family, claiming they are cutting off their health insurance in retaliation for challenging Fred Sr’s will.

Later in 2000: The case is eventually settled and the terms are not in the court file.

In decades-old legal papers exclusively revealed by DailyMail.com this week, Mary and Fred III claimed that after providing health insurance for decades, the Trump family ‘unilaterally’ canceled it ‘maliciously and without excuse or justification.’

Fred III and Mary alleged the Trumps acted in ‘retaliation’ for them challenging the will of Fred Trump Sr., who died in 1999.

Mary alleged that Fred Sr. was suffering from ‘significant mental impairment’ when he rewrote the will eight years before his death.

She said Donald and his siblings manipulated him into nearly cutting out her and Fred III from the will.

Doctors testified that Fred Sr. was in severe decline at the time. Dr. Ronald MacKenzie, wrote in a report dated October 11, 1991 that ‘it was clear throughout the interview that he has significant memory impairment.’ Four months later Professor Rajendra Jutagir said Fred Sr. ‘did not know his birthdate, was unsure of his age and turned to his son for help in responding to some questions.’

The new will divided the bulk of the inheritance among his living children, meaning Mary and Fred III only got $200,000 each because their father was dead, according to reports.

The case was eventually settled and the terms are not in the court file. One Trump source told DailyMail.com that Fred and Mary actually received several million dollars.

In an affidavit from the 2000 lawsuit against the Trump siblings, Mary claimed she discovered that in September 1991 Fred Sr. rewrote his will so it ‘virtually disinherited’ her and her brother.

When they challenged the will in probate court, the Trump family allegedly canceled their health insurance in ‘retaliation,’ she said.

Mary and Fred III claim the Trumps lied during the probate for Fred Sr.’s estate by saying he had ‘not a scintilla of diminished capacity’ when he changed the will in 1991 at the age of 85.

But doctors who examined Fred Sr. around then said he had early signs of dementia and couldn’t even remember his birthday nor details of a story read to him 30 minutes prior, according to medical reports included in the lawsuit.

The documents allegedly show that Robert Trump told doctors in 1992 that Fred Sr.’s memory had seen a ‘notable decline’ for the past two years, flatly contradicting his later testimony to the probate court.

The court papers also suggest that Fred Sr.’s judgment may have been further impaired by problems with alcohol.

Mary and Fred III even claim their grandfather may not have been the one to sign his revised will and contend it was ‘allegedly’ signed by him.

In an affidavit Mary Trump claimed: ‘At the time the will was executed, my grandfather was suffering from senile dementia and significant memory impairment.

‘My brother and I believe that the will is the product of undue influence and coercion by defendants upon my grandfather, who clearly lacked the requisite mental capacity to make a will.’

Fred Sr. built up The Trump Organization into a vast real estate empire and Fred Trump Jr. was his eldest son.

But Fred Jr. battled alcoholism his entire life and died at the age of 42 in 1982.

After his death, health insurance for Fred III, Mary and their mother Lisa was covered by one of Fred Sr.’s companies.

That included coverage for Fred III’s disabled infant son William — born five days after his great grandfather’s death — who needed round the clock nursing care for his seizures. The president and his siblings claimed William did not need such care and dismissed it as ‘expensive babysitting.’

Instead of hiring a nurse, Fred III should take a CPR course from the American Red Cross in case William has another cardiac arrest and resuscitate the boy himself, the siblings said.

DailyMail.com tracked her down to the second-floor condo in the town of Brewster, where she was spotted wearing the same outfit and buying a six-pack of Bass Ale on Tuesday

Despite wanting to tell all about her uncle, Mary was less forthcoming when it came to talking to us. 'There will be a time and a place,' she said. 'Have a great day. Enjoy. It's a beautiful spot'

Mary, who lives in Rockville Centre on Long Island, New York, has been in hiding since news of the book was revealed last week. DailyMail.com tracked her down to her $2 million vacation home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, on Tuesday. She would not discuss the book 

In her affidavit Mary claimed: ‘For the defendants to threaten the health of a 10-month-old infant in order to try and force a settlement and thereby cover up their own duplicitous conduct is obscene.

Mary's book — titled Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man — is scheduled to be released in July

‘They have lied in the probate proceeding and they are lying in this proceeding, attempting to paint themselves as kind, loving and concerned individuals when nothing could be farther from the truth.’

In her affidavit Mary said she met her Uncle Robert at the Drake Hotel in New York in mid-1999. ‘The purpose of the meeting was my uncle’s attempt to persuade us to sign waivers and consents to the probate of my grandfather’s will.

‘When we expressed reluctance to do so, my uncle immediately stated that (the health insurance company) had already expended $125,000 for William’s care.

‘This barely veiled threat surfaced again a number of times, more blatantly, during the course of probate proceedings.’

In February 2000, five months after the will was changed, Robert took Fred Sr. to Geriatric Medicine Associates at Mt Sinai Hospital in New York for an evaluation of his memory.

Mary claimed Robert told the doctors then that Fred Sr.’s memory had been in ‘notable decline’ for the past two years.

Mary argued: ‘This was the same man who swore at his deposition, as did his brother and sister, that his father was mentally fit at the time he made his will.’
