In a secretly recorded audio obtained by The Washington Post, Maryanne Trump Barry slammed his brother, President Donald Trump, as a man with “no principles” who cannot be trusted.
The audio was recorded by Mary Trump, the author of a bestselling book on her uncle, Donald Trump. In total, she “surreptitiously taped 15 hours of face-to-face conversations” with her aunt, first sister Maryanne Trump Barry, according to The Post.
Trump Barry was serving as a federal judge when she heard President Trump said on Fox News, “maybe I’ll have to put her at the border” as children were being separated from their parents and put in cramped quarters while court hearings dragged on.
“All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry said. “He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”
“His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God,” she said. “I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy sh*t.”
“He doesn’t read,” Barry said of her brother, according to transcripts of the recordings obtained by The Post.
