President Donald Trump ‘s older sister criticised her brother and his children in a recording released by her niece.
Former federal judge and Trump’s sister Maryanne Trump Barry can be heard condemning Ivanka Trump, the president’s adviser and second child, the president’s son Eric as well as Mr Trump himself.
Mrs Trump Berry criticises Ivanka after she posted a photo on Instagram of herself and her young son on the same day the Trump administration was reportedly separating migrant children from their families in 2018.
Referring to a comedian who denounced Ivanka‘s photo, she said: “When that damn Ivanka puts this picture, of the Madonna and Child, on Instagram, when the big news of the day was about children being ripped from their families, I couldn’t blame.
“I never heard of Samantha Bee before. I couldn’t blame what she said.”
Mary Trump, president Trump’s niece, released the secretly recorded conversation between her and Mrs Trump Barry on Friday.
In the recording, the pair continued to talk about Ivanka, with Mr Trump’s sister saying: “Ivanka gives a s***. It’s all about her.
“She’s a mini-Donald,” she said, adding the president is “besotted with her. He always has been. She’s always been his favourite”.
Moving onto Eric Trump, the president’s second son, Mrs Trump Barry had a few choice words about him.
“Meanwhile, Eric’s become the moron publicly,” she can be heard saying.
And she is no less relentless when it comes to her brother, saying he “won’t do anything for anybody unless it’s going to enure to his…”.
Mrs Barry Trump can be heard adding: “He won’t do anything publicly. I mean, if you…Anything he did, he says, ‘Look what I’ve done! Aren’t I wonderful!
“And he’s as tight as a duck’s a**. Just like dad, really.”
The aunt and niece also spoke about Mr Trump’s action on Dreamers – people who were brought to the US illegally as children who can receive deferred deportation and can become eligible for a US work permit – an initiative brought in by Barack Obama.
“Well, what happened, what he did with the Dreamers. I mean,” Mrs Barry Trump said.
“But he denies it. I mean, he would deny he changed his mind.
“He’s all over…”
Mary Trump then says there are children in “de facto concentration camps” and the president blames the Democrats for the “horrible policy” which “suggested that he thinks it’s a bad thing – and yet he’s allowing it to continue”.
Mrs Barry Trump replies: “It’s mind-boggling. But that’s all about his base.”
Mary Trump, who is the daughter of the president’s older brother Fred Trump Jr, says she made the recordings in 2018 and 2019.
