“Due to high demand and extraordinary interest in this book, ‘Too Much and Never Enough’ by Mary L. Trump will now be published on July 14, 2020,” Simon & Schuster said Monday.
It was previously scheduled to come out on July 28.
In the prologue to the book, Mary Trump writes: “In addition to the firsthand accounts I can give as my father’s daughter and my uncle’s only niece, I have the perspective of a trained clinical psychologist. Too Much and Never Enough is the story of the most visible and powerful family in the world. And I am the only Trump who is willing to tell it.”
Simon & Schuster published the back cover of the book for the first time on Monday. It is an excerpt of Mary’s writing, stating that “today, Donald is much as he was at three years old: incapable of growing, learning, or evolving, unable to regulate his emotions, moderate his responses, or take in & synthesize information.”
When the existence of Mary’s book was revealed last month, the President’s younger brother Robert took legal action to block its publication.
The restraining order is still in place against Mary Trump, so she is unable to comment publicly. She has a spokesperson, Chris Bastardi, who said Monday, “The act by a sitting president to muzzle a private citizen is just the latest in a series of disturbing behaviors which have already destabilized a fractured nation in the face of a global pandemic. If Mary cannot comment, one can only help but wonder: what is Donald Trump so afraid of?”
Mary’s attorney Ted Boutrous said on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources” that he is confident that the restraining order will be lifted.
“The Supreme Court has never upheld a prior restraint in any case in history where political speech was involved. That’s what this is,” he said. “It’s an important book about the President of the United States.”
The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Friday.
In a legal brief on her behalf, Boutrous and her other attorneys said that the book is her “own story about life as a member of the Trump family — a story that includes information about financial and familial misdeeds by the President of the United States and his siblings.”
“This Book addresses issues of profound importance to our country, with critical insights concerning the President of the United States, his formative years, and his family’s financial dealings,” the legal filing said. “Ms. Trump offers a personal perspective on President Trump — valuable eyewitness source material for historians and citizens.”
Harder has not responded to requests for comment on the state of the case.
