Donald Trump paid someone to take his SATs for him - according to Mary's new book
Mary Trump, Donald Trump's niece, claims that “as a high school student in Queens… Donald Trump paid someone to take a precollegiate test, the SAT, on his behalf.”, according to the New York Times.
This revelation comes as her new book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man," is set to be released two weeks earlier than originally announced, on July 14th. Simon & Schuster, the publisher has already printed 75,000 copies of the book, according to court filings. Before it's release, the book currently the No. 1 best-selling book on Amazon, surpassing John Bolton's memoir "The Room Where It Happened."
In the book, Mary Trump accuses Donald Trump's father of creating a toxic family dynamic that best explains how the President acts today, according to CNN who obtained a copy. Mary Trump, whose father, Freddy Trump, died following struggles with alcoholism, writes that she could "no longer remain silent" following the past three years of Trump's presidency. "Donald, following the lead of my grandfather and with the complicity, silence and inaction of his siblings, destroyed my father. I can't let him destroy my country,"
Mary Trump also claimed that the score he paid for on the SAT enabled Donald Trump to get into the University of Pennsylvania’s prestigious Wharton business school. The President often boasts about having attended Wharton.
On p. 72 of her the book, Mary Trump says Donald Trump paid Joe Shapiro — “a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker” — to sit in for him during the SAT so he could get into Wharton. Donald “paid his buddy well,” Mary writes.
