Donald Trump's Niece Says She's Heard Him Use the N-Word & Anti-Semitic Slurs

Donald Trump‘s niece Mary Trump just released her bombshell book “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” and she’s opening up about his alleged history of making racist remarks.

Mary went on Rachel Maddow‘s MSNBC show on Thursday (July 16) and said that it was “sort of normal” to her people in her family use the N-word while growing up.

Maddow asked if the president “was an exception” to that or if she heard him use the N-word.

“Of course I did,” Mary replied. “And I don’t think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.”

Maddow then asked Mary if she specifically heard the president say the N-word and any anti-Semitic slurs and she said yes to both.

Mary also made some big claims about how the president has cheated in the past.
