Donald Trump will spend transition period 'breaking stuff' with 'vengeance', his niece Mary claims
INSTEAD of engaging in a peaceful transition, President Donald Trump will be “breaking stuff” with a “vengeance,” his niece Mary Trump opined a day after news outlets called Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden the election winner.
Mary Trump opened her piece in The Observer on Sunday by stating that the manner that her uncle, “the most colossal and fragile ego on the planet,” deals with losing the election is “he does not deal with it at all.”

“This is what Donald’s going to do: he’s not going to concede, although who cares. What’s worse is he’s not going to engage in the normal activities that guarantee a peaceful transition,” she wrote.
“All he’s got now is breaking stuff, and he’s going to do that with a vengeance.”
She continued that she worries about what her uncle will do in the two-and-a-half months before the inauguration “to lash out.”
Mary Trump predicted that he will do all he can to delegitimize the Biden administration, as well as pass demoralizing pardons and sign many executive orders.
She pointed out that Donald Trump will still be in charge of the country’s coronavirus response in that time frame and “there could be a million Americans dead by then under his watch.”
Mary Trump, a psychologist and longtime critic of her uncle, on Saturday celebrated news outlets reporting that Biden garnered enough electoral votes to win the election by posting a photo of herself at the beach wearing a Biden-Harris hat and holding a glass of champagne.
She shared sentiments similar to her Observer piece in a tweet on Saturday morning stating that Donald Trump would have a “temper tantrum” at the election results regardless of the victor.
Mary Trump based her forecast on how the president will behave during the transition in part on her personal experience as the daughter of his older brother, Fred Trump Jr, who died in 1981 at the age of 43 of alcoholism.
“Shortly after the 2016 election, when I’d see him being particularly cruel, I would think about how he treated my father,” she claimed in the Observer.
"He took away our family health insurance after his father, my grandfather, died – this was when my nephew needed round-the-clock nursing care, which we then couldn’t afford. That is the kind of man he is.”
She added that Donald Trump will “be having meltdowns upon meltdowns” because “he has never lost anything” and is “the kind of person who thinks that even if you steal and cheat to win, you deserve to win.”
Mary Trump concluded that her uncle’s claims that he will run for president in 2024 is “just a face-saving exercise” and that he will instead face debt and possibly criminal charges.
“But the worst thing Donald’s looking at isn’t financial difficulties or the prospect of jail. It’s becoming irrelevant,” she wrote.
"I don’t think he would ever recover from that.”
Donald Trump has previously called his niece, who wrote the tell-all book Too Much and Never Enough, “unstable,” and tweeted that “the only way a person is able to write a book on me is if they agree it will contain as much bad ‘stuff' as possible, much of which is lies.”
