President Donald Trump of the United States of America is bereaved. He just lost his younger brother, Robert.
Trump, who is currently in an intense battle to retain the seat of the president ahead of an election in his country, made the announcement in a statement shared in the night of Saturday, August 15, by Kayleigh McEnany, White House press secretary.
"It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight. 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 said.
The Straits Times reports that Robert, who died at the age of 72, was into real estate while alive.
Trump, the report said, had visited his brother shortly before he passed on. It is believed he will attend the funeral of his brother whose cause of death is not yet announced.
The report quoted family sources as saying he had not been able to speak in the last couple of days before his death and was kept in the intensive care unit of the Mount Sinai hospital in New York.
The report said Robert had no children but helped raise Christopher Hollister Trump-Retchin, the son of his first wife, Blaine Trump.
It is noteworthy that in July, according to the report, Robert had won a court case restraining temporarily Trump's niece, Mary, from going ahead with publishing a book that dug into the life of the president and his family.
