Mary Trump Court Battle
Mary together with her brother Fred the 3rd sued Donald Trump and his siblings; Maryanne and Robert while contesting their grandfather’s will. They sought one-fifth of their grandfather’s estate claiming it would have been given to their father if he were alive. All of Fred Trump Sr.’s grandchildren received $200,000 from the estate, and the majority was split between his four surviving children. Mary Trump and Fred Trump III argued it should have been split five ways. According to the Daily News, Donald Trump said he was fulfilling his father’s wishes to not treat Mary and Fred III differently than the other grandchildren. He said his niece and nephew were not given special treatment because the family did not like their mother.
They also claimed that Donald, Maryanne and Robert Trump retaliated against them for filing the lawsuit by cutting off the medical coverage Fred Trump Sr. had provided to his family for decades. This affected Fred Trump III, whose son, William, was born cerebral palsy.
During an interview with The NT Times in 2016 Donald Trump said he withdrew the medical benefits that could have helped Fred Trump III’s son in revenge. “I was angry because they sued.”
Mary Trump Allegedly Leaked Fred Trump Sr.’s tax returns
According to The Daily Beast, Mary Trump will allegedly out herself as the source for The NY Times and detail her involvement working with journalists Russ Buettner, Susanne Craig, and Barstow to crack the story.
On October 2, 2018 NY Times published an article where they said that “President Trump participated in dubious tax schemes during the 1990s, including instances of outright fraud, that greatly increased the fortune he received from his parents.”
They revealed that Trump who proclaims himself as a self-made billionaire and alleges that he got no financial help from his father had actually received the equivalent today of at least $413 million from his father’s real estate empire, starting when he was a toddler and continuing to this day.
Much of the money was alleged to have come to Trump as he helped his parents dodge taxes. He and his siblings set up a sham corporation to disguise millions of dollars in gifts from their parents, records and interviews show. “Records indicate that Mr. Trump helped his father take improper tax deductions worth millions more. He also helped formulate a strategy to undervalue his parents’ real estate holdings by hundreds of millions of dollars on tax returns, sharply reducing the tax bill when those properties were transferred to him and his siblings.”
