Update: a federal appeals judge allows publication of Mary Trump's tell-all book to move forward. The book is schedule for July 28 release

(CNN) President Donald Trump said that his niece, who is set to publish a tell-all book about him and his family, had signed a nondisclosure agreement and is "not allowed to write a book."

Mary Trump, the President's niece and the daughter of his late older brother, Fred Trump Jr., has penned a book described as a "revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him." The book is set to be released on July 28, according to the book's publisher Simon & Schuster.
"She's not allowed to write a book," Trump told Axios in an interview Friday. "You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with — she's got a brother, Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total ... signed a nondisclosure."
Simon & Schuster declined to comment Sunday evening. CNN had previously reached out to Mary Trump for comment.
Trump has dealt with several unflattering portrayals of his presidency written by former staffers, including a soon-to-be published book by former national security adviser John Bolton. Mary Trump's book is the first from a family member that criticizes the President.

The Daily Beast first reported on Mary Trump's book, "Too Much And Never Enough," and that she had signed a nondisclosure agreement following a 2001 settlement from litigation disputing Fred Trump Sr.'s estate, citing people familiar with the matter.
