Mary Trump, the niece of Donald Trump, is selling out her own family members once again to claim that Trump’s children will turn on him.
Mary went on MSNBC on Thursday night to claim that Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric Trump won’t show the same kind of loyalty to their father that Allen Weisselberg has in the wake of his indictment in New York.
“I think [Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric] should be quite anxious right now,” Mary told host Rachel Maddow.
Mary went on to say that while the former president will “expect the same kind and level of loyalty as he expects from Alan,” it would likely not be forthcoming.
“I think [Donald] would be surprised to learn that I don’t believe my cousins would exercise that kind of loyalty towards him because his relationship with them and their relationship with him is entirely transactional and conditional,” she claimed. “They’re not going to risk anything for him just as he wouldn’t risk anything for them.”

Last month, Mary told CNN that she does not think that Trump would sacrifice himself for his children if he ever faced legal trouble.
“What would it mean to Donald Trump if they came after his kids? Would that change his disposition, do you think? Would he take one for his kids?” asked host Chris Cuomo, to which Mary replied, “No, he wouldn’t.”
This comes after Weisselberg pleaded not guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court to charges of tax fraud, conspiracy, grand larceny and falsifying business records, according to The New York Post. Prosecutors claim that Weisselberg received “indirect compensation” of more than $1.7 million, as well as free rent at a Manhattan apartment, luxury cars and private school tuition for his family members, without paying taxes on any of it.
Trump Jr. has spoken out against the charges, however.
“This is going on in America right now,” he added. “This is banana republic stuff, and if our press was even a little bit intellectually honest, they’d be calling at that because this is not the storyline that they have been sold and told by the AG and the DA over the last few years. This is nonsense, and it has to be called out as such.”
