President Trump's niece Mary Trump excoriates her uncle in her forthcoming book and reveals that she provided family tax documents to The New York Times.

“It wasn’t enough for me to volunteer at an organization helping Syrian refugees,” she wrote in the book, according to excerpts provided to Axios and other publications. “I had to take Donald down.”

Even the book's title includes a sharp rebuke of the president—the work is titled: "Too Much And Never Enough: How My Family Created The World's Most Dangerous Man."

The book is slated for a July 14 release and in it Mary Trump shreds her uncle and warns that his re-election would spell disaster for the nation.

“By the time this book is published, hundreds of thousands of American lives will have been sacrificed on the altar of Donald’s hubris and willful ignorance. If he is afforded a second term, it would be the end of American Democracy," she reportedly writes in the book.

Mary Trump, a clinical psychologist, also claims that Donald Trump paid an individual to take an SAT exam for him. White House deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews described that claim as "completely false."

“Donald’s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for,” the president's niece reportedly wrote in the book.
