Donald Trump struck out at his niece Mary and former National Security Advisor John Bolton Friday over their tell-all memoirs about the president.
In a Twitter tirade, Trump claimed that he is the ‘ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club’ because of the recent string of scathing stories told about him in new blockbuster books.
The president launched into Bolton calling him a ‘lowlife dummy’ and a ‘war mongering fool’ before accusing him of breaking the law.
He then rounded on niece Mary Trump who he called a ‘mess’ and claimed that his parents couldn’t stand her while also accusing her of breaking the law.

‘I am the ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club,’ Trump began Friday evening.
‘First I have lowlife dummy John Bolton, a war mongering fool, violating the law (he released massive amounts of Classified Information) and an NDA in order to build badly needed credibility and make a few dollars, which will all end up going to the government anyway.
‘Next up is Mary Trump, a seldom seen niece who knows little about me, says untruthful things about my wonderful parents (who couldn’t stand her!) and me, and violated her NDA,’ he continued.
‘She also broke the Law by giving out my tax Returns. She’s a mess!
‘Many books have been written about me, some good, some bad. Both happily and sadly, there will be more to come!’
It was revealed Thursday that Mary L. Trump’s scathing memoir about her uncle has sold nearly a million copies from preorders alone.
Publisher Simon & Schuster revealed that the book, named ‘Too Much and Never Enough’ had sold a company record of 950,000 copies in combined print, digital and audio editions as of its date of sale, earlier this week.

John Bolton’s memoir ‘The Room Where It Happened’ was released last month
Simon & Schuster were also the publisher’s of Bolton’s ‘The Room Where It Happened’, which sold nearly 800,000 copies in its first week when released last month.
Trump and his allies had tried to stop both books from coming out, alleging that Bolton had revealed classified information and that Mary Trump had violated a nondisclosure agreement.
Judges in each case denied requests for injunctions.
In her book, Mary Trump has claimed that she heard her uncle use the n-word and anti-Semitic slurs and that the family engaged in casual bigotry throughout her childhood.
The White House has called Mary’s allegations ‘a book of falsehoods’, adding: ‘The president doesn’t use those words.’
Mary described what her family engaged in as ‘a knee-jerk anti-Semitism, a knee-jerk racism.’
‘Homophobia was never an issue because nobody ever talked about gay people, well, until my grandmother called Elton John’ an anti-gay slur,’ she also told The Washington Post.
In the book, she describes her grandmother Mary calling the choice to have John sing at the funeral of Princess Diana ‘a disgrace’ and said he was a ‘little’ six-letter slur.
She said that led to her decision not to come out to her family.
Mary Trump was secretly engaged to a woman, but had to push back her wedding because her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., had died.
