Mary Trump is sharing her reaction to her uncle's highly publicized lawsuit against her and The New York Times. Although former President Donald Trump is suing her for a staggering $100 million, she does not seem phased by his legal action. Describing her uncle as "a fucking loser," Mary revealed there are aspects of the lawsuit that she finds interesting, reports The Daily Beast.

Appearing on The Daily Beast podcast "The New Abnormal," Mary Trump offered her take on the lawsuit saying one of her "favorite things" about the suit is the quotes he actually pulled from her book, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Man."

Mary said, "Probably my favorite thing about the suit is that he quotes the Times article extensively, which outlines all the awful things Donald had done. And then he quotes extensively from my book. Thank you! Should I be angry, or should I send him flowers for selling more books for me? I think it's the latter. Donald and Meghan McCain are like my best salespeople."

Another aspect that caught her attention in the suit is the suggestion that "somehow these New York Times reporters coerced me. Like, there's a difference between convincing someone over time and coercing them but apparently, I'm such a weak child that they were able to strong-arm me into smuggling my own documents and handing them over."



So will the lawsuit actually garner the result Trump is hoping for? With Trump's tainted legal history and his reputation of filing frivolous lawsuits, Mary Trump is not sure this lawsuit will

"I don't think he has lawyers left at this point who probably do anything other than operate out of strip malls. But he's probably worried about my lawsuit against him, because this is how the Trump family communicates: We sue each other," Mary said.

She also briefly discussed her fraud lawsuit against the former president and his siblings. She said that she believes "there will be discovery" in that fraud case because "it's an incredibly well-crafted suit, there's a lot of merit. Mary Trump also made one thing clear. "I'm not backing down, she said. "I'm not settling."
