Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump has announced that she wants to change her name to distance herself from the former president.
In an interview with The Telegraph, Mary said, "I am prepared to change my name if need be," as she fears the negative connotations some associate with the Trump name.
The 55-year-old clinical psychologist also took the opportunity presented by the interview to address the rumors of an impending divorce between Donald Trump and Melania.
She said that the former first lady may not divorce her husband, who is the only president in history to have been impeached twice, but asserts that he does not understand "affection or intimacy."
Rumors of a rift between the couple began to circulate when Melania walked off as Trump posed for photographers in Florida after moving out of the White House.
In her memoir about her uncle, Too Much and Never Enough, Mary described Donald Trump as the "world's most dangerous man."
"The damage Donald has done to this country is incalculable," she said. "We're just waiting to find out how much is irreparable."
As per the Independent, Mary is the daughter of Donald's brother Fred Trump Jr, who passed away at the age of 42 died in 1982.
Mary Trump and her brother Fred Trump III claimed that the former president's family tried to cut them out of their inheritance, which is why they challenged their father's will.
In an interview with CNN last week, Mary said that the day Trump had to hand over the Oval office to Joe Biden was "probably the worst day of his life."
"The other thing I just want to point out about that speech, it was reminiscent of a video he made after the insurrection saying the movement is just beginning, which seems like a bit of a threat to me," she said to CNN, presumably in reference to the assault on the Capitol building which took place earlier this month.
The 55-year-old then speculated that her uncle is going to do everything in his power to change the narrative around his presidential legacy.
