Don Jr hasn’t seen ‘tell-all’ author Mary Trump ‘in 20 years’ and hints she may NEVER have met Donald

MARY Trump has little contact with the president and his family for the last 20 years, according to Donald Trump Jr.

Trump Jr. has cast doubt that the president's niece, and author of a tell-all book about him, was present at an extended family gathering in 2017.

"If she was there I don’t remember seeing her, and other than possibly that one large family gathering, I don’t believe I’ve seen her in approximately 20 years," Trump Jr. tweeted Wednesday.

The Trumps have sought to distance themselves from Mary following the publication of her book, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man, which lawyers for the president tried to block from being published.

Donald Trump's press office have dismissed his niece's claims, saying the book was published "in the author’s own financial self-interest".

In an interview on Tuesday Mary, 55, the daughter of President Trump's late older brother, Fred, claimed the president is "utterly incapable of leading this country" and urged him to "resign".

"He is utterly incapable of leading this country, and it’s dangerous to allow him to do so,” Mary claimed in the interview aired on ABC News.

In the book, which was released on Tuesday, Mary claims that Donald's father neglected, manipulated, and emotionally abused him - claims dismissed by Trump's office.

Fred Trump Jr passed away at the age of 42 in 1981 from a heart attack, after a struggle with alcoholism.

In the book, Mary writes: "Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence, and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father. I can’t let him destroy my country.”

Mary, who obtained her bachelor's and master's degrees from Tufts University and Columbia University, and also earned another master's degree and a Ph.D at Adelphi University, writes in the book that "love meant nothing" to Fred Trump Sr, who "terrified" the young President.

Trump's niece has vowed she "had to take him down" with the tell-all book "spilling family secrets" prior to its early release, reported Axios.

"It wasn't enough for me to volunteer at an organization helping Syrian refugees. I had to take Donald down," she writes.

The book claims that a two-year-old Trump was neglected and left with a "total dependence on a caregiver (Fred Sr) who also caused him terror" when his mom got sick.

The Trump family had argued that the publication of the book would violate a non-disclosure agreement.

"President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people – why speak out now?" his spokesperson Sarah Matthews told The Sun.

The US president has previously said the book would violate an NDA and he'd "considered suing" his niece."

She’s not allowed to write a book," the president said in an interview with Axios.

"When we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with – she’s got a brother Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total… signed a nondisclosure."
