Earlier this year Robert Trump had requested a temporary restraining order in an attempt to stop the publication of his niece Mary's family exposé Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man.

He said he was "deeply disappointed" in his niece's decision to publish the book.

"Her attempt to sensationalise and mischaracterise our family relationship after all of these years for her own financial gain is both a travesty and injustice to the memory of my late brother, Fred, and our beloved parents," he told the New York Times.

"I and the rest of my entire family are so proud of my wonderful brother, the president, and feel that Mary's actions are truly a disgrace."
