The president visited his ailing brother in the hospital Friday.
The president announced the death of his brother late Saturday.
“It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight,” he said in a statement. “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.”
Donald Trump reflected on the relationship he had with his brother, who is only two years younger, at a briefing on Friday.
