Our prayers go out for the speedy recovery of Robert Trump.
The White House has confirmed that President Trump's brother has been hospitalized.
Multiple sources are confirming that Robert is "very ill."
It is well known that Robert Trump and President Trump have a solid relationship.
In fact, it was Robert who led the family lawsuit against Mary Trump for her exploitative "memoir."
The details of his condition have not been revealed, though we know that he is "very ill."
More information below:
It has also been confirmed that the President will be going to visit his younger brother.
Other details are not known at this time.
According to the New York Post:
President Trump’s brother Robert has been hospitalized in New York, the White House confirmed Friday.
Trump, who was expected to spend the weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, plans to visit his younger brother in hospital sometime on Friday, an administration official told The Post.
Robert, 72, is reportedly “very ill” but exact details of his condition are unknown.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told ABC News the two brothers have a “very good relationship.”
In June, Robert was hospitalized for more than a week in the intensive care unit of Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
He was most recently in the headlines in July after he tried to block the sale of niece Mary Trump’s scathing tell-all family expose, but his court bid failed and the book has since gone to print.
He was an executive in the family business but unlike his older brother, Donald, tended to avoid the spotlight.
Hopefully the media give the Trumps space to visit each other during this difficult time.
There is no word whether or not this is COVID-related.
If this is COVID-related, the media will likely try to spin this into an attack story on Trump.
Whether or not Robert is hospitalized due to COVID, we pray for a strong recovery!
The NY Daily News reports that Robert was hospitalized way back in June:
In June, Robert Trump was hospitalized in the intensive care unit at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York for more than a week.
But he had been well enough in recent weeks to lead a lawsuit on behalf of the Trump family which had been trying to stop publication of a tell-all book by the president’s niece, Mary, titled “Too Much and Never Enough”.
The Trump family claimed Mary Trump’s book was a violation of a nondisclosure agreement she signed in connection to a financial settlement she received from the family years before.
Robert Trump said at the time that he was “deeply disappointed” in his niece’s decision to air the family’s dirty laundry, and that he and the “entire family” were “so proud of my wonderful brother, the president.”
The president had been scheduled to go to his Bedminister, N.J. resort on Friday, but it is unclear if he will go there before or after his New York stop.
Either way, the NYPD would work with the Secret Service and help provide an escort to the hospital, and have cops stationed outside the hospital, a police source said.
The security detail at Trump Tower may also see additional cops, just in case Trump decides to go there.
Fred Trump Jr., the president’s older brother, died in 1981 at the age of 43 from complications with alcoholism.His brother’s early death has had a profound influence on the president’s life, and he has said he never drinks because of it.
His older sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, just retired recently as a federal judge.
Siblings Robert Trump and Elizabeth Trump Grau are both retired business executives. He was in real estate and she was in banking.
Robert Trump previously worked at the Trump Organization after following the future president into the family business.
This story is developing.
We expect more details to be released throughout the day.
