US President Donald Trump is a "cruel", "liar" and devoid of principle, according to his sister, whose secretly recorded words were reported by the Washington Post on Saturday.
Maryanne Trump Barry particularly attacked the migration policy put in place by the president, which led to the separation of children and their parents at the border and their sending to detention centers.
"All he wants is to please his electoral base," according to these records, obtained by the American daily. “He has no principle.
The recordings are the work of the president's niece, Mary Trump, who also recently published a book denouncing "the toxic family" from which he came.
Robert Trump, younger brother of the president who died last week, had unsuccessfully taken legal action to try to prevent the book from being released. Some 950,000 copies had been sold from day one. The White House denounced him as "a lie. »
"This is the mistake of all of this. The lie and this cruelty. Donald is cruel," Mrs. Trump Barry told her niece on the recording.
She further claims that the billionaire cheated in college contests, an allegation also present in Mary Trump's book. "He entered the University of Pennsylvania because he gave someone else the exams," she said, indicating that she remembered the man's name.
Neither the president nor the White House commented immediately.
