The president’s brother Robert Trump has already asked a court in Queens to issue the temporary restraining order, which was rejected. According to his, Mary signed a non-disclosure agreement in 2001 which she was violating. The judge of Queens said she was not the right jurisdiction to seek an injunction against the “tell-all” book.

The Daily Beast reported earlier this month that the book will reveal that Mary Trump was the crucial source for explosive New York Times reporting on Trump’s finances, which suggested the billionaire paid little in tax for decades.
