Mary Trump: Of Course My Uncle in a Fascist But He Doesn’t Understand What That Word Means
Listening to Donald Trump speak, it is clear that despite going to an Ivy League school, he isn’t an educated man. In fact, language experts have found that he only speaks at a 3rd grade level.
Despite his lack or oratory skills, Trump’s words have a major impact as his supports hang on his every word. During a recent interview, Mary Trump noted that her uncle is a fascist but he doesn’t understand what that word means.
She told Business Insider:
“He is a fascist. But he probably doesn’t know what fascist means. He thinks he deserves all the power in the world just because of who he is,” she said. “In his mind, he’s always at the center of the universe and thinks he should be deferred to even though he’s ignorant, the weakest, and the least intellectually curious person I’ve ever met. The only thing that matters to him is what he views, in his mind, to be strength. I guess his definition of strength is being cruel and disruptive as possible and getting away with it all the time.”
Trump was also asked about her uncle’s praise of other fascists like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un. “He is so needy,” she said. “He raises anybody who puts him on a pedestal. No matter how bad they are.”
