President Trump's Brother Has Died


President Trump's younger brother, Robert, has died – but not before the President was able to visit one last time. Apparently, the 71-year-old Trump had been ailing for months and was reportedly gravely ill when he received the President Friday. Trump said at the time he had a wonderful brother who was having a hard time.

There's been no disclosure of Robert Trump's illness. As the youngest brother he was not groomed to take over the family business as his older brothers were, though he did work for the Trump Organization as executive vice president. He oversaw the casinos in Atlantic City.

He has recently been in the news leading the lawsuit against his niece, Mary Trump, in an attempt to prevent the publication of her book about the President. Mary Trump is the daughter of the President's older brother, Fred, who died in 1981.
