I don't believe my cousins would exercise that kind of loyalty towards him because his relationship with them and their relationship with him is entirely transactional and conditional. — Mary Trump, niece of former president Donald Trump

Trump's children will not remain loyal to him like Allen Weisselberg, says his niece Mary
  • Trump's children Ivanka, Eric, and Donald Jr. will likely flip on their father, his niece Mary says.
  • She believes her cousins will not show the same loyalty to Donald Trump as Allen Weisselberg has.
  • "They're not going to risk anything for him just as he wouldn't risk anything for them," she said.
Donald Trump's children would likely flip on their father Donald if they face criminal charges, the former President's niece Mary has suggested.

She told MSNBC on Thursday that Ivanka, Eric and Trump Jr. would be unlikely to show the same sort of loyalty to their father during a criminal case, as Trump's long-serving chief financial officer Alan Weisselberg has.

Weisselberg was this week served with multiple criminal charges after he refused to co-operate with officials investigating the former president's financial arrangements.

Weisselberg's 25-page indictment said that other executives also benefited from the scheme, raising the prospect that Donald Trump's children could be next to face charges.

"I think [Donald Jr., Ivanka, and Eric] should be quite anxious right now," she told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Thursday.

Mary Trump told the channel that while her uncle will "expect the same kind and level of loyalty as he expects from Alan," it would likely not be forthcoming.

"I think [Donald] would be surprised to learn that I don't believe my cousins would exercise that kind of loyalty towards him because his relationship with them and their relationship with him is entirely transactional and conditional.

"They're not going to risk anything for him just as he wouldn't risk anything for them," she said.
