According to promotional material from her publisher, Simon & Schuster, Mary Trump’s “explosive” book will show how the president “acquired twisted behaviors and values” like, “Financial worth is the same as self-worth; humans are only valued in monetary terms,” “a ‘killer’ instinct is revered, while qualities like empathy, kindness, and expertise are punished,” “taking responsibility for your failures is discouraged” and “cheating as a way of life.”According to the New York Times, which reviewed a manuscript of Mary Trump’s book, Donald Trump paid someone to take the SATs for him, and the “high score” helped him get into the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton business school. The Times also reported that Mary Trump recalls how no one went with Fred Trump Jr., Donald’s eldest brother who died from a heart attack, to the hospital on the night of his death; instead, Donald Trump went to the movies.Also Read: Kellyanne Conway Blames Media for Airing Out 'Family Matters' Detailed in Mary Trump's New Book (Video)The Daily Beast, which obtained a copy of the book, reported that Mary Trump recounts an incident when Donald Trump commented on her breasts when she was wearing a bathing suit and shorts during a trip to Mar-a-Lago when she was 29.“Holy s—, Mary.

Details of a signed official agreement, between the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the now-defunct Sussex Royal Foundation, see the Diana Fund divided between the brothers’ independent charitable activities.
