Donald Trump’s niece Mary sues him for ‘rampant fraud’


Mary Trump, the niece of Donald Trump, has sued the US President, accusing him and other family members of cheating her out of tens of millions of dollars from an inheritance.

The complaint filed in a New York state court in Manhattan on Thursday local time (Friday AEST) against Donald Trump, his sister Maryanne Trump Barry, and the estate of his brother Robert Trump, who died in August, accused the defendants of “rampant fraud” and conspiracy.
