Donald Trump's Niece Considering Changing Her Name To Distance Herself From Former President

Donald Trump's Niece Considering Changing Her Name To Distance Herself From Former President

Donald Trump's niece says she is considering changing her name to get some distance from the disgraced former US President.

Mary Trump has long been outspoken in her opposition to her uncle, criticising his actions over the past four years.

Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, the 55-year-old said she has been considering changing her name to separate herself from him once and for all.

And she told the publication that the 74-year-old's influence on the country is 'incalculable'.

She said: "The damage Donald has done to this country is incalculable. We're just waiting to find out how much is irreparable."

But this isn't the first time the clinical psychologist has spoken of her concerns regarding Trump and the possibility of her changing her name.

In an article she wrote for the Guardian last year, Mary said: "Donald Jr, Ivanka and Eric also know their relationship with their father is both conditional and transactional. I have been saying since 2016 that I was going to have to change my name. I think they're going to have to change theirs."

Trump's time in the Oval Office finally came to an end last week when Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.

And it didn't take long for his successor to make some changes, one of them being his 'Diet Coke' button.

Yes, I'm aware that this sounds like a joke, but several respected political journalists have all attested to the fact that on Trump's Oval Office desk there was a small box with a little red button on it.

When pressed about what the box and the button did, Trump would push it and - ta dah - a member of staff would appear carrying his favourite fizzy drink on a silver platter.

Joe Biden To Repeal Donald Trump's Anti-Abortion Policy

The existence of the box was revealed all the way back in 2017, when Associated Press journalist Julie Pace wrote: "Midway through my interview with President Donald Trump, he reached over and pressed a red button on his desk in the Oval Office.

"It didn't trigger a nuclear launch or send advisers scurrying into the room.

"Instead, a White House butler walked in with a single glass of Diet Coke on a silver tray for the commander in chief."

Times Radio's Tom Newton Dunn, who was one of the first to point out that Biden didn't have the button, shared a similar story on Twitter.

He wrote: "President Biden has removed the Diet Coke button.

"When @ShippersUnbound and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did.

"Eventually, Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It's gone now."
