Nothing reminds you of your own mortality more than losing a sibling.

RIP Robert.

He was just re-married in March 2020. Really sad for his wife/family.

President Trump released a statement

"It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight," the president wrote. "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."

Rest in peace Robert and prayers to the president and his family during such a personal loss so many of us have had to endure.

True and death is certainly a leveling field for us all...we all can at least sympathize and even in some cases, empathize...:(

I have no love for Donald Trump, but I have brothers, and a lot of love for them - the same love, I'm sure Trump has for his brother.

Rest in Peace.

... the same love, I'm sure Trump has for his brother ...

Not always, according to someone who knows better: “I can’t speak to what their relationship is like now, but when I was still in the family, they hated each other. I’m glad Donald is visiting him in the hospital ..."

this fellow litigated against the release of his niece's book - while he was in ill-health?

I don't care about tabloid bull****.

I'm not going to attack the President in response to his brother's death. Simple as that.

As a man with brothers, I can only imagine his pain in my darkest moments.

Trump doesn't love anyone but himself. But I appreciate your optimism.

Your imagination is surely the extent of it. If anything, Trump is annoyed by the distraction.

That's lovely. I wonder who wrote it.

visited him in the hospital on the way to play golf

when his older brother died he and his sister went to see a movie rather than be at the hospital

it is certain he is overwhelmed with grief ... that his tee time was delayed

I am glad that Donald Trump got to see his brother before he passed away.

President Trump made the dreaded side-trip to Manhattan to see him.

You have no knowledge of how often he visited his brother nor do you have any knowledge how many times a week he called his brother. You have no idea how many times his brother was a guest at the WH or Mar a lago. You have no idea how many times Robert, his family and his two sisters and their families have been part of family gatherings during Trump's presidency. In otherwords you don't know ****.
What a hateful vindictive person you reveal yourself to be.
