Robert Trump, 71, the younger brother of President Donald Trump, died Saturday at a New York hospital, Donald Trump announced in a statement.

"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," the President said.

Donald Trump is expected to attend his brother's funeral. However no details were immediately available on plans. Additionally, a source familiar said the President personally dictated the White House statement on his brother.

"Uncle Robert, we love you. You are in our hearts and prayers, always," Ivanka Trump posted on Twitter Saturday night.

This is terrible news. RIP Robert Trump. This would have been better news if this happened to another Trump. Sigh.

His little brother seems to have been a nice guy, and not universally hated. Hopefully he went painlessly.

Trump has to be hurting. He must be in terrible emotional pain. Losing a little brother for any reason must be painful.

It is what it is.

Thought had by person at the White House: If you can remember, man, woman, car, camera, TV, you are fit to lead a country and no one has anything to worry about

One can wonder what, lol.

Robert Trump lived in New York so it's natural to wonder if he died from Covid-19, at least that's my opinion. If he did, Trump would more than likely not want that information to be made public for obvious reasons.

70+ year old, in hospital and ICU for a long time in New York. Now sure, could be cancer, or heart problems.. but during a pandemic it could be .... And since they have not said he died of cancer or heart problems or anything, then one has to wonder if it was Covid.+19.

While his brother was dying in the hospital, Trump was golfing.

And while he was talking about his brother's condition a few days ago and that he was in a hospital in NYC Trump had to also campaign and mention that he has a real good chance of winning NYS in November.

The guy is a cold, callous, PoS..

Anyway RIP Robert.
