Robert Trump, the president’s younger brother, dead at 71

NEW YORK (AP) – President Donald Trump’s younger brother, Robert Trump, has died after being hospitalized in New York. He was 71.

The president visited his brother at a New York City hospital Friday after White House officials said he had become seriously ill.

The president says his brother was his “best friend” and died Saturday night. The youngest of Trump’s siblings remained close to the president.

As recently as June, Robert Trump filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Trump family that unsuccessfully sought to stop publication of a tell-all book by the president’s niece.
