Mary Trump Dismisses President Running Again in 2024, Says Claims Are Just to Soothe His Ego at Losing

President Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump has said her uncle's claims of a 2024 presidential run is just to "assuage his ego" as Republicans continue to undermine the election process with claims of voter fraud.

"I think [running again in 2024] was floated initially as a way to appease him and assuage his ego," Mary told CNN's Chris Cuomo Friday.

The author of a tell-all Trump family memoir added that her uncle will not want to lose again, dismissing notions of a second bid for the White House.

"He will never put himself in a position where he can lose like this again, first of all," she said.

"Secondly, it would mean for four years that he is playing essentially a supporting role, which will be very difficult for him to sustain."

Mary went on to say that running again in four years might not be a possibility for Trump due to health or legal concerns.

"And you know, most importantly, in four years he will be the same age Joe Biden is now," she said. "However, Donald is a very unhealthy person. He has a terrible diet. He doesn't exercise. And he has, you know, psychological disorders that continue to go untreated."

She added: "So I don't even imagine that he'll be able to run in four years. Plus the fact, of course, he may be looking at serious charges being brought against him."

Earlier in the interview, Mary hit out at Republican senators for "enabling" Trump's refusal to concede the race, deeming it a "dangerous situation."

"This is the awful part of this," she said. "He should have been rendered completely irrelevant by now. Whether he concedes or not, it doesn't matter. It's up to the Republicans to say it's over, we're moving on. As long as they don't do that, they continue to give him power. They continue to give him the ability to rile up his base and other people who voted for him.

"It's an incredibly dangerous situation."

Mary claimed Trump allies are "making an incredible miscalculation here by pretending that they can control this monster that they're unleashing upon us."

The president's niece named checked Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and criticized him for focusing on "short-term needs"—the two special elections for Senate in Georgia.

"If he continues to allow this to go on between now and January 6, we're going to be in a much more difficult position," she said.
