President Donald Trump’s younger brother, Robert S. Trump, died on Saturday after an unspecified illness.
“He was not just my brother, he was my best friend,” Trump said in a brief statement.
Robert Trump was the one of four surviving children of real estate developer Fred Trump. He had previously worked for his older brother as a top executive at the Trump Organization. Once a regular bold face name in Manhattan’s social pages, he has kept a lower profile in recent years.
He recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Trump family seeking to stop publication of a tell-all book by the president’s niece Mary titled “Too Much and Never Enough.” She is the daughter of the eldest Trump sibling, Fred Trump Jr., who struggled with alcoholism and died in 1981 at the age of 43.
