Niece: Trump hired impersonator to take admission exam for him

In the New York Times, Maggie Haberman reports that according to his niece's book, Donald Trump didn't take his SAT himself.

There aren't any huge bombshells, but it does paint an unflattering portrait of Trump.

She alleges that the future U.S. leader paid someone else to take the SAT pre-collegiate exam, helping him get into the University of Pennsylvania's prestigious Wharton business school.

"Also, the absurd SAT allegation is completely false", she added.

Donald Trump is not the only one to take for your degree. It's mind boggling. He has no principles.

White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway, when asked about the book on Tuesday, told reporters at the White House that it was a family matter.

Mary Trump traces much of her pain to the death of her father when she was 16.

Mary is the son of Fred Trump Jr, Trump's older brother, who died in 1981 from complications related to alcoholism.

"It was just not his thing". That would be the biggest mistake.

The book by Mary Trump, the daughter of President Trump's elder brother, describes how decades of dysfunction and relations with an abusive father moulded the man who would become president into a reckless leader who, according to publisher Simon & Schuster, "now threatens the world's health, economic security and social fabric".

Donald Trump suffered emotional abuse at the hands of his father, according to a bombshell new book written by his niece. No one went with him, Mary Trump writes.

Mary Trump's forthcoming memoir will now be published two weeks earlier than its original release date, the publisher said Monday, amid "a high demand and extraordinary interest" in the tell-all.

Presented by the publisher Simon & Schuster as a revelation book about three months before the presidential election, the work sparked a legal battle: a brother of Donald Trump, Robert, tried, in vain, to block him in court.

A ruling briefly blocking its publication was lifted last week by a NY state appellate judge.

Now a clinical psychologist, Mary Trump writes that she once served as a ghostwriter for her uncle. "This will never happen".

Donald Trump has often boasted about attending Wharton, which he has referred to as "the best school in the world" and "super genius stuff".

Instead, she found herself wandering around her house a few hours after Trump's victory was announced, fearful voters "had chosen to turn this country into a macro version of my malignantly dysfunctional family". All the items that are in addition to any other dark secrets of the family, such as tax evasion, organised by the family of billionaire in the 1990sor the fact that Mary Trump accuses his uncle of having cheated on the SATa review of the end of the high school of the major in admissions to american universities.

"He doesn't", she writes.
