DONALD Trump's sister Maryanne Trump Barry said she pleaded with her brother to "stop" and get rid of his Twitter account in conversations secretly recorded by the president's niece.
The details emerged weeks after Trump's niece Mary, 55, published a damning tell-all book about the president's family history titled, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.
“Cut off his Twitter account,” Barry, 83, said in a recording obtained by VICE News.
In the conversation, Mary Trump could be heard agreeing with her aunt and suggested such action "could potentially save the future of the planet if they just…wouldn't let [Trump] on Twitter."
"I said that to him about, six months, a year ago. ‘Get rid of Twitter. Stop this,’” Barry concluded to her niece that the president couldn't help himself.
Barry, who previously served a senior federal judge on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, also said that Trump “doesn’t understand” concepts like dignity.
“He goes to a September 11th memorial and he sees a crowd and he fist bumps,” Barry complained.
Mary Trump’s private audiotapes were obtained by Vice News just days after The Washington Post first got its hand on the secret files and published an explosive story about Barry blasting her brother for having “no principles."
Earlier, Barry was reportedly heard saying: "All he wants to do is appeal to his base.
"He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”
In the recording, the 83-year-old sister of the president was also heard complaining about her brother's lying.
“His goddamned tweet and lying, oh my God.
"I’m talking too freely, but you know. The change of stories. The lack of preparation. The lying. Holy shit.
“It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel," his sister said.
Her scandalous statements were recorded in 2018.
When Trump's niece asked Barry what Trump has read, she answered: "No. He doesn't read."
She blasted the president for not reading her immigration opinions and said she did not agree with "what they’re doing with kids at the border."
Barry also called her brother a "brat" and claimed to have done his homework for him in addition to driving “him around New York City to try to get him into college.”
Barry was born in 1937 and is Trump's eldest sister.
The audio reveal comes a week after their brother, Robert Trump, died at 71 years old.
Robert was one of the four siblings to Trump.
Trump's three older siblings are Maryanne, Fred Jr, and Elizabeth.
Two months ago, Robert filed a temporary restraining order in an attempt to block the publication of his niece Mary’s tell-all book.
