Donald Trump's niece may hate his guts – but she still wanted to sit at his desk.
Mary Trump smiles as she sits at the Resolute Desk in the White House in this photo, exclusive to DailyMail.com.
The picture shows a photo of Mary's grandfather on the shelf behind her – a man she also wants to despise.
The photo was taken in April 2017 when Mary visited the White House to celebrate her aunt Maryanne's 80th birthday, one year after her uncle took office.
It may surprise readers of her book, which paints a dark portrait of the Trump family, saying that the president's father, Fred Sr, neglected him so much that it was "child abuse".
The psychological damage was so great that, according to Mary, Donald became a sociopath, a narcissist and a threat to the whole country.
Despite all of these concerns – Mary tweeted in 2016 that the election was "the worst night of my life" – she accepted the invitation to visit her uncle at the White House.

In Too Much and Never Enough: How my family created the most dangerous man in the world is described by Mary as she walks past paintings of former first ladies in the building on her way to becoming president
She put aside the 20-year-old resentment with the Trumps that dates back to 1999 when they found in court records that she was already a multi-millionaire thanks to the family property property payments.
The trip in April 2017 included a free night at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, where simple rooms cost around $ 300 a night.

She stopped at one of Hillary Clinton's and silently thought to herself, "How could that have happened?"
The whole Trump family was there, including Donald's son Eric, who didn't recognize Mary because they hadn't seen each other since school.
Mary says they all posed for photos in the Oval Office, including Mary, who chose one behind the Resolute Desk.
After looking at the photo of herself later, she saw Fred Sr. and described him as "floating like a ghost behind me".
Mary describes attending a meal in the White House Executive Dining Room and claims that the president has made a gross gag over his son Eric and Lara Trump.
At that point, they had been together for eight years, three of whom were married.
The President said, "Lara, I barely know who she was, frankly, but then she made a great speech during the Georgia campaign to support me."

The whole Trump family was in the White House to celebrate Maryanne's 80th birthday, including Donald's son Eric, who didn't recognize Mary because they hadn't seen each other since high school.

The president got angry when Maryanne reminded everyone of the time when Donald's late brother Fred Jr. threw a bowl of mashed potatoes on his head "because he was such a brat".
Everyone laughed except the President, who listened with his arms crossed and a scowl on his face, as if he were an angry seven-year-old.
Such behavior was typical of Donald, Mary writes in the explosive memoir.
She claims that her uncle spoiled her when she was 29 and in a swimsuit in Mar-a-Lago, his Florida home. Donald reportedly said, "Saints, Mary, you're stacked!"
She claims Donald paid a friend to take his SATs for him to go to the famous University of Pennsylvania Wharton Business School because his scores were so low.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg of the 200-page book that damn the entire Trump family.
Mary portrays her as deeply damaged people, from Fred Sr. and his wife Mary Ann to their five children.
Her own father Fred Trump Jr. died in 1981 at the age of 43 after fighting alcoholism and the Trumps and almost cutting them out of family ownership.
Mary writes: “Donald, who followed my grandfather's guidance and destroyed my father with the complicity, silence and inactivity of his siblings. I can't let him destroy my country.
Another section of the book reveals Mary Donald's eldest sister, Maryanne, a retired federal judge who made fun of his presidential election, called him "clown," and made fun of his "five bankruptcies."

The Trumps saw "cheating as a way of life" and empathy was for weaklings.
Mary, a trained psychologist, diagnoses her uncle as a sociopath for "chronic crime, arrogance, and disregard for others."
She writes that "Donald may also meet some of the criteria for dependent personality disorder".
The hallmarks are: inability to take responsibility, discomfort alone and extreme efforts to receive support from others.
On the back of the book it says that "child abuse in a sense is a question of" too much "or" not enough ", the title of the book.
It adds: & # 39; Donald's mother fell ill when he was two and a half years old and suddenly deprived him of his main source of comfort and human contact. His father, Fred Sr., became his only available parent. & # 39;
But Fred firmly believed that dealing with young children was not his duty, and he kept to his twelve hours a day, six days a week, as if his children could take care of themselves.
& # 39; From the start, Fred's self-interest distorted his priorities and caring for children reflected his own needs, not theirs. He could not empathize with Donald's plight, so his son's fears and desires remained unsmoothed.

& # 39; love meant nothing to Fred; he expected obedience, that was all. Over time, Donald became afraid that asking for comfort or attention would provoke his father's anger or indifference when Donald was most vulnerable.
& # 39; That Fred would become the main source of Donald's comfort, if he was much more a source of fear or rejection, put Donald in an unbearable position: total dependence on a caregiver who also caused him terror. Donald suffered hardships that would scare him for life. & # 39;
Simon & Schuster announced this week that Mary's memoirs will be published two weeks earlier.
It will now appear on July 14 instead of July 28, as it is number 1 on the Amazon bestseller list due to high demand and extraordinary interest.
Mary is the child of Fred Trump Jr., the president's older brother, who died in 1981 after struggling with alcoholism
The memoirs are still the subject of a lawsuit between Mary and the Trump family. A hearing before a judge in Dutchess County north of New York City is scheduled for Thursday.
Mary dropped out with her family in 1999 when she and her brother Fred Trump III questioned Fred Sr.'s will.
Mary complained that Fred Sr was "severely mentally impaired" and Donald and his siblings had manipulated him to almost cut her and her brother out.
Robert Trump made an affidavit that said, “Fred Sr. and our mother Mary Ann Trump have made these children (Fred III and Mary) multimillionaires over time.
"My parents provided Fred III and Mary with annual gifts of $ 20,000 for each member of their family."
Fred III's wife got an additional $ 20,000 when they got married, Robert said.
Robert wrote: & # 39; This is more than the income they received from family businesses, corporate interests, and leasehold contracts.
"I have every reason to believe that if the amount does not exceed Trump's $ 200,000 in revenue per year, they will each receive approximately $ 200,000 without lifting a finger at any point."
Robert claimed that Fred III and Mary also had an inheritance from their father and capital distributions that were $ 3 million between 1991 and 1993 alone.
