Trump's sister criticizes her brother in secretly recorded audio
Former Federal Judge Maryanne Trump Barry was forced to retire from the bench this past year due to the overwhelming illegal tax and financial dealings by her brother, President Donald J. Trump.
Dr. Mary Trump, a licensed clinical psychologist and author of a recently published tell-all book Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man." The book exposed her uncle, Donald J. Trump, as being a mentally ill, a sociopathic con man who suffers from clinical paranoia, and a narcissistic personality disorder. Dr. Trump has now begun to release more evidence of Donald Trump’s unfitness to be president of the United States.
In a secretly recorded audio, Maryanne Trump Barry, the recently retired Federal Judge and eldest sister, in which she criticized her brother the president for his lack of principles, his lying, and said, "you can't trust him."
Making matters worse for President Trump is there maybe 15 hours of taped recording of Judge Barry filled with revelations that confirm not only many of her allegations in her book, but also a cascade of other potentially devastating revelations about him.
The audio was first reported by the Washington Post and obtained in part by CBS News was recorded between 2018 and 2019.
Trump’s sister, in these recordings, criticizes President Trump's immigration policies and his "lack of preparation" and his "lying." Barry also recalls learning that Donald Trump suggested sending her to the U.S-Mexico border to support his administration's policies. Her response to that suggestion was to decry his actions asking in exasperation "what they're doing with kids at the border," and then recalls telling her niece that she said another relative…
"Well, I guess he hasn't read my immigration opinions."
When asked by Mary Trump what Mr. Trump has read, Judge Barry replies…
"No. He doesn't read."

In a number of the recordings released so far, Judge Barry is heard complaining about her brother’s character….
· "Donald is out for Donald, period."
· "All he wants to do is appeal to his base."
· "He has no principles. None. None."
· "I mean, he goes to a September 11 memorial, and he sees a crowd and he fist pumps."
In another recording, Trump’s sister complains about her brother’s Twitter account; she recalled saying to him.…
· “I said, 'get rid of Twitter. Stop this.'"
Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, responded to the tapes on "Fox News Sunday"…
"Another day, another political attack” and then shockingly refers to Trump’s elder sister as being “very vocal in her support for Joe Biden."
In another part of the recordings released, Judge Barry is heard discussing her nomination to federal court by President Ronald Reagan. She gets heated, recalling Mr. Trump suggesting he was the reason she was nominated for the position, which prompted Mary to ask what Mr. Trump had ever accomplished on his own. Judge Barry's response…
"I don't know."
"Well, he has five bankruptcies."
Mary Trump responds by saying…
"Good point. He did accomplish those all by himself."
Barry responds and says…
"Yes, he did. Yes, he did," "You can't trust him."
Judge Barry also suggests that President Trump did cheat to get into the University of Pennsylvania by hiring someone to take his SAT, shocking revelation after his scores of demands that President Obama released his academic record.
In the recordings, Judge Barry discusses her nomination by Reagan several times. Barry complained that her brother Donald would often bring up how he called his attorney Roy Cohn, who was close with President Reagan, to help with her nomination to the federal court.
Judge Barry asserts she would have been nominated even without Mr. Trump's intervention. In one recording, Judge Barry says she once told Mr. Trump that if he ever brought it up again…
"I will wipe you out."
Little did she know, she was being recorded by Mary Trump and maybe helping him get wiped out this November 3, 2020; Election Day.
The Washington Post reports that, while discussing the situation with Cohn and her nomination, Barry stated…
"It's the phoniness of it all. It's the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel."
Chris Bastardi, a spokesperson for Mary Trump, told CBS News in a statement the recordings were made because…
"Mary realized members of her family had lied in prior depositions."
"Anticipating litigation, she felt it prudent to tape conversations to protect herself."
Judge Barry confirms Mary Trump’s portrait of Donald Trump as being "a brat" and claimed she did his homework for him and "drove him around New York City to try to get him into college."
"He went to Fordham for one year, and then he got into the University of Pennsylvania," Barry said. "I guess he had somebody take the exams ... SATs or whatever. ... That's what I believe."
Barry has not publicly criticized her brother, the president, but one recording; however, she notes that at one point in their relationship, Mr. Trump "didn't talk to me for two years."
In a statement released by the White House a day after Rush Limbaugh asked if people should feel sorry for Joe Biden because he lost a wife and daughter in a car accident and a son to cancer. President Trump addressed the tapes and recent death of his brother:
"Every day it's something else. Who cares? I miss my brother, and I'll continue to work hard for the American people. Not everyone agrees, but the results are obvious. Our country will soon be stronger than ever before."
Donald Trump’s avowed affection for his brother may be entirely phony. During the 1980s, Donald Trump tapped Robert Trump to oversee an Atlantic City casino project, calling him the perfect fit for the job. When it cannibalized his other casinos, though, “he pointed the finger of blame at Robert,” said Gwenda Blair, author of “The Trumps: Three Generations that Built an Empire.”
In Blair’s book, she wrote …
“When the slot machines jammed the opening weekend at the Taj Mahal, he very specifically and furiously denounced Robert, and Robert walked out and never worked for his brother again,”
Many reports by employees indicate that the two barely communicated in the years that followed. Robert Trump kept his distance while still keeping up appearances at special events.
Meanwhile, more than 180,000 people have died from the coronavirus, and almost 6 million in the United States have been confirmed infected. At the same time, over 50 million people have been forced to apply for unemployment insurance while President Trump does everything possible to slow mail delivery to prevent voters from using the mail in this pandemic because he knows he’s heading towards a historic landslide electoral defeat.
