Trump Barry was found dead this Monday in her home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, sources close to her deceased told the New York newspaper. The cause of her death has not been specified.

In a recording published by The Washington Post in 2020, Maryanne Trump accused the then president of the United States of cruel and lying. Furthermore, he said that he was an unprincipled person who could not be trusted.
He also criticized his brother for his immigration policy, which saw so many children separated from their parents at the border and sent to detention centers. “All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” he says in the recordings, which were obtained without his consent. “He has no principles. None”. “His damn tweets and his lies, my God.”
The recordings were made secretly by the former president’s niece Mary Trumpwho published a memoir that same year in which he described the “toxic family” in which the president grew up.
