Mary Trump wants her uncle, President Trump, to resign from the White House.
During an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Mary alleged Trump has grown tired of working in the White House—something she claimed to have noticed in the president just months after him first getting there in 2017.
CNN reports she described her visit with him in 2017 and said he “already seemed very strained by the pressures.”
“I just remember thinking, ‘He seems tired. He seems like this is not what he signed up for,'” she added.
Fast-forward years down the road, Mary had one-word of advice for the president: “Resign.”

Mary’s interview is a part of her book tour to sell copies of her new release, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.”
The book is overwhelmingly critical of President Trump and accuses him of a number of misdeeds.
“In the book, she gives scathing criticism of the President, in which she accuses him of being a ‘sociopath’ and charges that his ‘hubris and willful ignorance’ dating back to his early days threatens the country,” CNN reports.
The report adds:
She writes that some of the book is based on her own memory, and in parts she reconstructed some dialogue based on what she was told by some members of the family and others, as well as legal documents, bank statements, tax returns and other documents.
In her interview with Stephanopoulos, Mary Trump also stood by a claim in her book that her uncle paid someone to take SAT tests for him to help him get into the University of Pennsylvania, which the White House has denied, though she acknowledged that she can’t prove the identity of the person.
She also accused Donald Trump’s father of creating a toxic family dynamic that explains the President’s behavior, telling Stephanopoulos she sees “parallels” between how the family operated and how the country is operating.
Mary Trump added: “I saw firsthand what focusing on the wrong things, elevating the wrong people can do — the collateral damage that can be created by allowing somebody to live their lives without accountability. If I can do anything to change the narrative and to tell the truth, I need to do it. Because I don’t believe the American people had the entire truth four years ago.”
