“It’s downright insulting to be told over and over again that the American people can handle it and that we just have to move on,” Trump told The Associated Press in an interview this week.
“If anyone deserves to be prosecuted and tried, it is Donald,” he said.
“(Otherwise) we just leave ourselves open to someone who, believe it or not, is even worse than him.”
When asked about his comments, a spokesman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign emailed a one-sentence response: “Did you mention you have a book to sell?”
His new book, “The Reckoning,” won’t be out until next July.
She will trace what she says is America’s collective trauma from its founding behind the backs of enslaved Africans to the growing economic and mental health impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.
The United States is “looking down the barrel of an explosion of psychological disorders” from the “trauma of living in a country where the pandemic not only hit, but was completely mishandled,” Trump told the Associated Press.
His uncle, Robert Trump, sued to stop “Too Much and Never Enough” from hitting store shelves, citing a family agreement not to publish stories about key family members without his approval, but a court rejected it. .
In September, Trump sued the president, Robert Trump, and his sister Maryanne Trump Barry, a retired federal judge, alleging they cheated her out of millions of dollars while taking her out of the family business.
Robert Trump died in August and the lawsuit is pending.
When his book on the family was published in July, Trump tweeted that Mary Trump was “a rarely seen niece who knows little about me, says false things about my wonderful parents (who couldn’t stand it!) And me,” and raped a nondisclosure agreement.
Trump said the president’s post-election behavior “makes a lot of sense” given his personality, psychology and lifelong disdain for losers.
“This is someone who has never legitimately won in his life,” he said.
But he has never lost either. Because in his opinion, winning is so important and you always deserve to win that it’s okay to lie, cheat and steal. “
Trump said the president inherited his scathing behavior from his father, Fred Trump, a real estate developer who died in 1999.
She called her grandfather “a horrible human being who simply reveled in the humiliation of other people.”
“It’s not just that Donald is horrible, incompetent and cruel, it’s that he has been allowed to,” he said.
“Every transgression that has gone unpunished has been an opportunity for him to go further.
“That’s part of the reason we’ll see him smashing as many things as he can on his way out the door.”
Mrs. Trump acknowledges that she has seen the president only sporadically over the past 20 years (she wrote in “Too Much and Never Enough” that he invited her to a family dinner at the White House in 2017), but, she argues, “she has not it hasn’t changed at all. “
“I’m basically looking at the same person that I knew when I was little,” she said.
Donald Trump faces at least one criminal investigation pending, an investigation into his business by the Manhattan district attorney that has been held back by a legal fight over access to his tax returns.
No former president has been arrested after leaving office, but Trump argues that protecting powerful people from punishment has historically hurt the country.
He used as an example the postwar acquittal of Confederate General Robert E Lee.
“I think it would be a tragedy if Donald (Trump) and all those who allowed him and committed crimes with him are not held accountable,” Trump said.
“It would make it impossible for this country to recover in the long term.”
