Mary Trump, the president’s niece, says her uncle is cornered and attempting a coup after Donald Trump gave a speech attacking the American democratic process.
“We’re seeing a man who is in a unique position. Donald has never been in this place before, where there’s nobody to bail him out, there’s nobody to buy him out. He’s desperate, he’s flailing and there’s nothing he can do, legitimately, except to watch this play out helplessly,” Mary Trump says in an interview with MSNBC.
She blasts Republican leadership for standing by while the president makes baseless allegations of voter fraud, issues legal threats and falsely claims victory in the national vote.
“This wasn’t just Donald obfuscating or lying, this was Donald talking about an attempted coup, the leader of a country trying desperately to delegitimize an election. It’s obscene and somebody’s got to step in an stop him,” she says.
