Robert Trump, 72, 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 made a last minute decision to go to New York Friday to visit his brother as he headed to New Jersey for the weekend.

Robert Trump had been admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan.

4. I highly suspect it.

All the articles when he was hospitalized said “undisclosed illness.”

40. I was worried I would see this kind of post regarding Mr. Trump's death.

Please wait for a tiny bit of verifiable evidence.

(jeeze)

Also, don't forget that according to Mary Trump, he dumped mashed potatoes on Donnie's ugly-ass head once.
