Former President Donald Trump’s niece Mary Trump, who regularly throws her own family members under the bus just to garner fame and fortune for herself, spoke out on Monday morning to claim that her uncle proved that “using racism as a platform” could be successful.
While appearing on the ABC talk show “The View,” Mary was asked why Trump didn’t promote the coronavirus vaccine more.
“Because he is not a generous, kind, empathetic and passionate human being,” Mary replied. “He likes it this way. He likes the division. He likes the chaos. He’s been doing this since 2015. Well, longer, but on the national stage, he’s been doing this since 2015. People seem not to understand not only did he have the best medical treatment money could buy when he got COVID, but he got the vaccine as did everybody else in his family.”
“It’s a travesty,” she added. “This person should be held accountable for that as well, but we have a terrible time in this country holding powerful white men accountable for anything, even if it is the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans, and it’s something we really need to change.”
When asked about Trump’s support, Mary said, “I think that says a lot more about the Republican Party than it says about anything else. I don’t know. What I do know is that one thing Donald proved is that using racism as a platform was successful. I think that’s why we see so much strife in this country, and we need to continue having the kinds of conversations about race and gender that you have.”
Mary then called out conservative cohost Meghan McCain, who did not take part in this interview.
“This is an incredibly powerful platform, and I think the more we talk openly about these things,” Mary said. “It’s a shame that your colleague didn’t have the courage to come on and have this conversation with me, but I appreciate that you were all willing to take up these very difficult subjects because racism, in my view, is at the heart of everything that’s wrong in 21st century America.”
