Mary Trump has spoken out to trash her family once again this week, this time saying that her cousins Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. don’t have enough charisma to run for office, and that they won’t be able to in 2024 anyway because they’ll be stuck in court.
Referring to her uncle, former President Donald Trump, Mary told Insider, “He has a certain charisma that appeals to people’s lowest and basest instinct and gives permission to people to be their worst selves. He can be charming. It makes sense to me that people can be taken in by him.”
“They don’t have that,” she added of Ivanka and Donald Jr.
Mary went on to predict that the former president and his children won’t be able to run for president in 2024 because they’ll be embroiled in legal challenges.
“That is the only saving grace at the moment: Donald and possibly two or three of his children are going to be embroiled in lots of legal actions, starting in the future and the not too distant future,” she said. “Thanks in large part to their dad but also to their own anti-social tendencies, going to be defending themselves I’m guessing in a fair number of civil and criminal cases going forward.”
This comes one month after Mary said that the political careers of Ivanka and Donald Jr. are “completely over.”
“I think it’s over. I think it’s completely over,” Mary said of their political future. “They have their father to thank for that. The insurrection was a bridge too far, Donny for sure is totally implicated in it, and if there’s any justice, he will be indicted at some point as well.”
“You know, we have all this information coming up that Ivanka and Jared allegedly, employees of the federal government, have made in excess of $600 million through their grift over the last couple of years,” she added. “So I think that the fact that they think that there’s any chance for them to turn the corner or rehabilitate their prospects is just insane.”
