Mary Trump revealed to the Washington Post that she had surreptitiously taped 15 hours of face-to-face conversations with President Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, in 2018 and 2019.
She gave them to the newspaper.
One exchange was recorded after Barry heard her her brother talk about separating migrant children from their parents at the border.
Said Barry: “All he wants to do is appeal to his base. He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”
She continued: “His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God. I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy shit.”
At one point Barry said to her niece: “It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel.”Save to Favorites
