My Uncle Is Responsible for 210,000 Deaths and Is Now "Willfully Getting People Sick"

As President Trump compares the deadly COVID-19 outbreak to the flu despite being hospitalized for the virus, Democracy Now! speaks  to his only niece, Mary Trump, about his increasingly erratic behavior in the final weeks of the election season and how his family views illness as a weakness.

"To be treated for something is to admit that you need the treatment, and I don't see him having any self-awareness," she says. "Clearly the people closest to him don't care about his well-being.

If they did, he'd still be at Walter Reed." She also warns that the "worst-case scenario" would be for President Trump to overcome his illness relatively quickly, because it would convince him to continue ignoring the pandemic. Mary Trump is a clinical psychologist.

In July, she overcame Trump's legal threats and published the now best-selling book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man."
