Mary Trump Age
Mary Trump is 55 years old.
Mary Trump’s father, Fred Trump Jr., died in 1981 at the age of 43 after battling alcoholism. In 2019, Trump talked to The Washington Post about his eldest brother and second oldest sibling, saying he regretted pressuring him about his career. According to The Post, Mary Trump’s father dreamed of being a pilot, but Donald Trump put pressure on him to join the family business, saying he shouldn’t be a “chauffeur in the sky.”
There has been bad blood between Mary Trump and her brother, Fred Trump III, and her aunts and uncles, especially Donald Trump, dating back to 2000, when the two children of Fred Trump Jr. sued their relatives to contest the will of Fred Trump Sr., according to The Daily Beast. In a December 2000 article in the New York Daily News, Mary Trump spoke about the dispute, along with her brother and sister-in-law. According to the article, the feud centered around the $100 to $300 million left behind by Fred Trump Sr. after his June 1999 death.
Mary Trump and Fred Trump III sought one-fifth of their grandfather’s estate, according to the Daily News, claiming it would have been given to their father if he were alive. All of Fred Trump Sr.’s grandchildren received $200,000 from the estate, and the majority was split between his four surviving children. Mary Trump and Fred Trump III argued it should have been split five ways. According to the Daily News, Donald Trump said he was fulfilling his father’s wishes to not treat Mary and Fred III differently than the other grandchildren. He said his niece and nephew were not given special treatment because the family did not like their mother
Mary Trump Book
According to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump’s book is set to be released weeks before Donald Trump will accept the GOP nomination for president at the Republican National Convention in Florida. She did not return a request for comment from Heavy and it is not clear if she plans to speak out ahead of the book being published on August 11.
Mary Trump has remained out of the spotlight and has not talked on TV or to the media about her uncle, both during his presidential campaign and after he was elected to the White House in 2016. But she has maintained a public Twitter account where she has shared some thoughts about Donald Trump and politics. She appears to be an avid Democrat, who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
On November 9, 2016, after her uncle was elected as president, Mary Trump tweeted several times to prominent media personalities and liberals, saying it was, “One of the worst nights of my life.” She also tweeted, “Utterly horrifying. What has happened to our country?” In another tweet that same night she wrote, “James Comey should be in jail.”
About Donald Trump winning the election, his niece said on Twitter, “What a tragedy. I feel like that lost my country tonight.” She added, “Hillary Clinton is an extraordinary human being and public servant. That she lost to this is unspeakable.” In a tweet to Joy Reid of MSNBC, she called into question the legitimacy of her uncle’s victory, writing, “FBI, Comey, Wikileaks, Russia, obsession with emails, normalization of racism, sexual assault. Fair and square? No.”
