US President Donald Trump announced that his younger brother Robert died on Saturday. The President’s statement was spread by the White House press service.
“With a heavy heart, I announce that my wonderful brother Robert passed away in peace today. He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be sorely missed, but we will meet again. The memory of him will always live in my heart. Robert, I love you. Rest in Peace, ”the American leader said.
Trump visited his younger brother at a hospital in New York on Friday. The White House press pool circulated footage of the head of the state’s motorcade driving up to the hospital, after which he entered the building. No other details were given.
NBC previously reported that 72-year-old Robert Trump was hospitalized due to a serious illness. The sources did not say what specific health problems were discussed. Trump, in turn, said that Robert is going through “difficult times”, but he hopes for his recovery.
Robert Trump this summer tried in court to prevent the publication of the scandalous book of the head of state’s niece Mary Trump “Too Much and Always Little: How My Family Created the Most Dangerous Man in the World.” The book was published in July, in it the niece of the American leader, who has a doctorate in clinical psychology, claims that Donald Trump, due to the negative influence of the family, is deprived of the ability to empathize with other people and suffers from many complexes.
