KEY POINTS

  • The unit is in a luxury building designed by a Pritzker Prize-winning Italian architect
  • The building offers sweeping views of New York City and the Hudson River
  • Mary Trump published a memoir where she painted Donald as a fraud and a bully

Mary Trump, the niece of former President Donald Trump, bought a $7 million condo unit in New York City just half a year after publishing a tell-all memoir about the Trump family.

The unit is located at the 565 Broome in Soho — a luxury building designed by Pritzker Prize-winning Italian architect Renzo Piano. Mary’s three-bedroom condo measures approximately 2,250-square-feet, records obtained by the Wall Street Journal showed.  

The building’s amenities include a 24-hour concierge, attended lobby, private gated driveway, entrance with automated parking, a 55-foot indoor pool and an on-site fitness center. The building also provides sweeping views of New York City and the Hudson River. 

Mary, a trained clinical psychologist, first made headlines in 2020 after announcing plans to release a book titled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man” where she described her uncle, the former president, as a fraud and a bully. 

Released on July 14, 2020, the tell-all memoir sold 1.35 million copies in the first week of its release. The book was sold in five languages and included all formats. The book ranked No. 1 in Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. It also ranked No. 1 on Amazon’s Top 100 bestseller list. 

The book made a number of allegations, among them a claim that Trump once paid someone to take his SAT. Mary also said Trump exhibited a number of characteristics attributed to narcissism.

“This is far beyond garden-variety narcissism; Donald is not simply weak, his ego is a fragile thing that must be bolstered every moment because he knows deep down that he is nothing of what he claims to be,” Mary wrote in the book, a copy of which was obtained by CNBC.

Mary blamed “sociopath” Fred Trump Sr., the former president’s father and her grandfather, for Donald’s behavior. She said Fred destroyed her uncle’s ability to “develop and experience” human emotion. 

“That’s what sociopaths do: they co-opt others and use them toward their own ends — ruthlessly and efficiently, with no tolerance for dissent or resistance,” Mary added.

The 2020 memoir was followed by a 2021 book titled “The Reckoning: Our Nation’s Trauma and Finding a Way to Heal.”
