is certain that her uncle, former President Donald Trump
, will sacrifice his own children
to avoid prosecution.
On Monday, CNN
's Chris Cuomo
asked Mary Trump if her uncle would "take one for his kids" if the Trump Organization
was under investigation
. Both Donald Trump Jr
. and Eric Trump work
for the Trump Organization, which is under investigation.
“No, he wouldn’t,” said the former president’s niece, who has been an outspoken critic of her uncle in recent years.
“I think if that happened, if prosecutors went after his children, he would fully expect them to take a hit for him, to benefit him,” the psychologist added.
According to Mary Trump, prosecutors "always try to get people
to flip so they can go after the bigger target."
“But Donald would never imagine in a million years that his children would do that, although I'm fairly certain they would,” she added, “so if that does happen, it'll be fascinating because he would never do anything to protect them if it was at his expense.”
Cuomo enquired, "How do you know?"
“I’ve known him my entire life, and unfortunately, I’ve had to analyze him pretty closely over the last four or five years,” Mary Trump explained.
“This is someone who has never changed; he does not evolve. And, as you mentioned earlier, he has one thing he cares about, and that is himself, and that will never, ever change, no matter who gets in his way, no matter who gets hurt, even if it is his children.”
