WASHINGTON — Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s older sis­ter, a for­mer fed­eral judge, is heard sharply crit­i­ciz­ing her brother in a se­ries of record­ings, at one point say­ing of the pres­i­dent, “He has no prin­ci­ples.”

Maryanne Trump Barry was se­cretly recorded by her niece, Mary Trump, who re­cently re­leased a book de­nounc­ing the pres­i­dent. Mary Trump said Satur­day she made the record­ings in 2018 and 2019.

In a record­ing, Barry, 83, says she had heard a 2018 in­ter­view with her brother on Fox News in which he sug­gested he would put her on the bor­der to over­see cases of sep­a­rated im­mi­grant chil­dren.

“His base, I mean my God, if you were a re­li­gious per­son, you want to help peo­ple. Not do this,” Barry says.

At another point she says: “His god­damned tweet and ly­ing, oh my God.” She adds: “I’m talk­ing too freely, but you know. The change of sto­ries. The lack of prepa­ra­tion. The ly­ing. Holy sh--.”

The record­ings came to light just a day af­ter the late Robert Trump, brother to Maryanne and the pres­i­dent, was memo­ri­al­ized in a ser­vice at the White House. Later, the pres­i­dent was dis­mis­sive of the record­ings.

“Every day it’s some­thing else, who cares. I miss my brother, and I’ll con­tinue to work hard for the Amer­i­can peo­ple,” Trump said in a state­ment.
