We at Unite America First extend our fullest and most sincere condolences to the family of Robert Trump on the occasion of his death at 72, and especially to our President, Donald J. Trump, Robert’s older brother.
The White House released a statement that said, “It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight,” he said in a statement. “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,” President Trump said Saturday evening while announcing the news.
“I have a wonderful brother, we’ve had a great relationship for a long time, from day one,” President Trump said earlier in the week talking about the plans to make a hospital visit.
Robert Trump was the youngest of five children by Fred and Mary Anne Trump, along with the president, Fred Trump Jr., Maryanne Trump Barry and Elizabeth Trump Grau.
He was married to Ann Marie Pallan in March, according to the New York Post. President Trump saw his brother on Friday. There were no details about the death of Robert, he had been in the hospital on and off since June.
Robert was remembered on social media:
WE LOVE YOU, ROBERT TRUMP!#RestInPeace🙏

Robert Trump has a big heart. 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.
