President Trump Pays Tribute To Younger Brother Robert Who Died At 71

“It is with a heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight,” President Trump said.

“He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace,” he added.

Other members of the Trump family paid tribute as did even Joe Biden. From The Daily Mail:


Robert, who reportedly took blood thinners, had suffered recent brain bleeds that began after a recent fall, according to a close friend of the family, who spoke to The New York Times.

Over the past few weeks, he had not been able to speak on the phone, according to the family friend.

Rudy Giuliani, the president’s lawyer, was among the first to pay tribute to Robert. 

‘Robert Trump has a big heart,’ he tweeted. ‘As a former Mayor I know how much he did to help New Yorkers in need.

‘We have lost a really good man. My love, prayers and condolences to the #Trump family.’

Eric Trump then tweeted fond memories of his uncle, describing him as ‘an incredible man’ who was ‘strong, kind and loyal to the core.’ 

Ivanka Trump followed with a tribute on Twitter on Saturday night saying: ‘Uncle Robert, we love you. You are in our hearts and prayers, always.’

Donald Trump Jr tweeted Sunday morning: ‘Uncle Rob, we love you and we will miss you. RIP.’

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden shared his condolences Sunday morning in a tweet addressed to Donald Trump saying ‘Jill and I are sad to learn of your younger brother Robert’s passing’.

‘I know the tremendous pain of losing a loved one — and I know how important family is in moments like these. I hope you know that our prayers are with you all,’ Biden added.

Robert Trump had no children, but he helped raise Christopher Hollister Trump-Retchin, the son of his first wife, Blaine Trump.

Besides the president, he is survived by his second wife, Ann Marie Pallan, and his sisters, Maryanne Trump Barry and Elizabeth Trump Grau.
