Who is Mary Trump and why has the publication of her book been blocked?
On Tuesday a judge from New York temporarily banned Mary Trump’s book about her uncle, President Trump, from getting published and the decision could be permanent.
A New York judge on Tuesday temporarily blocked president Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, from publishing her new tell-all book titled “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.” The book was scheduled to be released on 28 July but that could change.
According to the publisher, Simon & Schuster, the book is a "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him."
The President’s brother, Robert Trump, has been working to block the book from getting published and now Mary Trump has to appear before the judge on 10 July. The judge also ordered the publisher not to release the book until the case is decided and it may be permanently banned.

Rober Trump’s lawsuit over the book alleged that Mary Trump is violating a non-disclosure agreement dating back to an inheritance dispute in the family regarding Fred Trump Sr.’s estate. The president also said that the non-disclosure agreement means his niece is not “allowed” to publish the book.
"Pending the hearing and determination of Petitioner Robert S. Trump's within motion for a preliminary injunction, Mary L. Trump and Simon & Schuster, Inc., together with their respective members, officers, employees, servants, agents, attorneys, representatives and all other persons acting on behalf of or in concert with either or both of them, are hereby temporarily enjoined and restrained," the judge ordered, per the Daily Beast.
Mary Trump's attorney, Theodore Boutrous Jr., in a statement to the Daily Beast said: "The trial court's temporary restraining order is only temporary but it still is a prior restraint on core political speech that flatly violates the First Amendment. We will immediately appeal."
