Furthermore, deputy press secretary Judd Deere confirmed the news of his hospitalization to CNN.

A senior administration official said that the President “has a very good relationship with his brother and his brother is very special to him.”

Sources told numerous media outlets that Robert is “very ill.” The 72-year-old was previously hospitalized in June for over a week in the intensive care unit at Mount Siani Hospital.

Donald’s schedule originally placed him at his resort in Bedminster, New Jersey for the weekend. Donald is going to visit his brother in the hospital, his administration confirmed.

Robert and Donald’s Relationship

In a 2016 interview with Page Six, Robert said he supported Donald running for president, “one thousand percent.” “If he were to need me in any way, I’d be there,” Robert shared. “Anything I could do to help.”

“I think he’s doing a great job,” he added. “I think he’s got a great message.”

Additionally, Robert was previously a top executive at the Trump Organization but unlike his brother, he did not seek out the public spotlight. Robert married his brother’s former assistant, Ann Marie Pallan in March. They are reportedly living in a mansion in Long Island, New York.

Who is Robert Trump?

Robert is one of Fred and Mary Trump’s children. Additionally, Robert has three other siblings aside from the President. His brother, the late Fred Trump Jr. passed away in 1981 from alcoholism. Maryanne Trump Barry is a retired senior judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. Elizabeth Trump is a former Chase bank executive.

“He’s not flamboyant,” an anonymous town local told Town & Country. They described him as a classy and dignified guy. “He couldn’t be more different than his brother, quite frankly,” they added. “I don’t even know how they’re in the same family.”

Furthermore, Robert appears to still hold fundraisers for the Republican party in his hometown. He has held events at Millbrook’s Monte’s Local Kitchen & Tap Room restaurant. The same restaurant catered a previous Donald Trump rally in Poughkeepsie this past April.
