The White House characterized a new book critical of President Donald Trump as being full of "falsehoods."

Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany addressed claims in a book written by Trump's niece Mary as "ridiculous, absurd allegations that have absolutely no bearing in truth" during a brief question-and-answer session with the media on the White House driveway Tuesday.

Several passages from "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man" have made their way into the media, including allegations that Trump has a "penchant for division" and that he could be "mishandling" the coronavirus pandemic on purpose. Mary Trump is a clinical psychologist.

"Have yet to see the book, but it is a book of falsehoods," McEnany said.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was also critical of Mary Trump, in particular her statement that her uncle is a narcissist and has a fragile mental state.

"As for books generally, obviously they're not fact-checked, nobody's under oath," Conway said.

She added that "family matters are family matters," and criticized Mary Trump for "giving her opinion about somebody who is not her" patient.

The president's brother Robert tried to bar publication of the book. Early copies of the book, slated for publication on July 14, became available on Tuesday.

A ruling briefly blocking its publication was lifted last week by a New York state appellate judge.
