'Democracy is at stake': Former Bush aides and staffers launch super PAC in support of Biden

  'Democracy is at stake': Former Bush aides and staffers launch super PAC in support of Biden The PAC will target "historically Republican voters who are dismayed and disappointed by the damage done to our nation by Donald Trump’s presidency."The group of at least 200 former officials, aides and Cabinet secretaries formed 43 Alumni for Biden to block President Donald Trump from winning a second term, arguing on its website that "democracy is at stake" and there have been "far too many days filled with chaos emanating from the highest levels of government." The group is not directly affiliated with Bush.

A forthcoming book by President Trump’s estranged niece describes him as a “toxic” bully who practices “cheating as a way of life,” values money above anything and belittles his own family members, according to a Monday press release.

In addition to those damning details, the press release from publisher Simon & Schuster says Mary Trump’s book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,” will now be released July 14, two weeks earlier than planned — even though the president’s brother is trying to block the tell-all in court.

Donald Trump's Niece Speaks Out in Affidavit as She Fights Tell-All Book Restraining Order

  Donald Trump's Niece Speaks Out in Affidavit as She Fights Tell-All Book Restraining Order Too Much and Never Enough is currently set to be released on July 28 . In an affidavit submitted on Thursday night and obtained by PEOPLE on Friday, Mary wrote that she “never believed” the confidentiality agreement she signed “could possibly restrict me from telling the story of my life.

The publisher said it’s moving up the release date due to “high demand and extraordinary interest.”

“[It] is the story of the most visible and powerful family in the world. And I am the only Trump who is willing to tell it,” Mary Trump, 55, writes in an excerpt of the book’s prologue included in Monday’s release.

Having spent much time at the sprawling Queens home where President Trump and his siblings grew up, Mary Trump speaks from first-hand experience as she delves into embarrassing accounts about the leader of the free world, the press release states.

She recounts the “strange and harmful relationship” between her presidential uncle and her father, Fred Trump, Jr., who died young after a long battle with alcoholism, according to Simon & Schuster.

Trump from Simon & Schuster Mary Trump's book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," accuses Donald Trump's father of creating a toxic family dynamic that best explains how the President acts today.

She also recalls the “appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s” in the late 1990s, the publisher says.

Other “explosive” portions of the book include vivid descriptions of the “twisted” values and behaviors Trump picked up as a young man including:

  • “Financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms.”
  • “A ‘killer’ instinct is revered, while qualities like empathy, kindness and expertise are punished.”
  • “Taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged.”
  • “Cheating as a way of life.”

Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist who has severed nearly all ties with her family, draws a parallel between the president’s uncharismatic character traits and his upbringing.

“Love meant nothing to Fred; he expected obedience, that was all,” she writes in another excerpt, referring to the president’s late father. “Over time, Donald became afraid that asking for comfort or attention would provoke his father’s anger or indifference when Donald was most vulnerable ... Donald suffered deprivations that would scar him for life.”

Trump's brother, again, tries to stop tell-all book from Mary Trump as news outlets publish its shocking claims

Mary Trump’s soon-to-be-released book has drawn a lawsuit from the president’s family.

Filed by Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, the lawsuit charges that the book should never see the light of day because it allegedly violates a non-disclosure agreement Mary Trump signed in 2001 after the family divvied up the estate of family patriarch Fred Trump, Sr.

The legal action remains pending in Dutchess County Supreme Court in New York.

However, the presiding judge has signaled that, even if Robert Trump’s hush agreement argument holds water, it could be hard to block the book’s release since the publisher has already disseminated copies.

A federal judge in Washington recently declined to block the publication of former Trump national security adviser John Bolton’s book because hundreds of thousands of copies were already in circulation.

Charles Harder, Robert Trump’s lawyer, did not return a request for comment.

Trump, who did not appear in public Monday, maintains his niece can’t publish because of the decades-old non-disclosure agreement, recently telling news outlet Axios, “she’s not allowed to write a book.”

Chris Bastardi, a spokesman for Mary Trump, questioned why the Trump family continues to fight if the president has nothing to hide.

“The act by a sitting president to muzzle a private citizen is just the latest in a series of disturbing behaviors which have already destabilized a fractured nation in the face of a global pandemic,” Bastardi said. “If Mary cannot comment, one can only help but wonder: What is Donald Trump so afraid of?”
