A memoir portraying President Donald Trump as a liar and narcissist who was coddled by an overbearing father, an incurious press and reckless banks before turning to politics will go on sale tomorrow as planned after a judge refused to issue an injunction against its release.

The president’s brother, Robert Trump, who sued to block the book’s publication, failed to show that either he or the public would be harmed if the memoir by his and the president’s niece, Mary Trump, is released, state Supreme Court Justice Hal Greenwald in Poughkeepsie, New York, said in his Monday decision.
