Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump, who has written a shocking tell-all book about her uncle, has confirmed that she has heard the president use racist and antisemitic slurs.

During an eye-opening interview on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Mary Trump revealed numerous unsavoury allegations about the current commander in chief.

In an unsurprising or perhaps shocking revelation, depending on your perception of the president, Mary claimed that she had heard Trump use numerous derogatory slurs after being pressed on the issue by Maddow.

The reporter said:

Just to ask, if your uncle was an exception to that in your family or if you ever heard him express antisemitic slur or the n-word or other sentiments like that. Do you mean this was an ambient thing in your family and you never heard it from him or did you hear it from him to?

Trump replied:

Oh yeah, of course, I did and I don't think that should surprise anybody given how virulently racist he is today.

Maddow momentarily paused before adding:

Have you heard the president use the n-word?

Trump simply replied "yeah" to which Maddow said:

And antisemitic slurs specifically?

Once again the answer from Trump was "yes."

The 55-year-old had previously said that this type of language was commonplace in her family but that she didn't share these views or ideologies despite how frequent racism was expressed within her family.

It was perfectly commonplace and ordinary to say such things. I didn’t share their ideas about race and Judaism at all. But you know, when you grow up with that being perfectly normal, you don’t really think twice about it.

Earlier this week, Mary Trump had given another interview, this time to The Washington Post where she had also said that this type of language was very common amongst the Trump family when she was growing up.

Growing up, it was sort of normal to hear them use the N-word or use antisemitic expressions.

Mary Trump's book which is called Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man has already become a best-seller after revealing several damaging claims about the president such as him paying someone to sit exams for him, his families poor treatment of his troubled brother Fred Jr and him compliment Mary on her breasts. The president unsuccessfully tried to have the book blocked from being published and denies much of its content.
