What Donald Trump Had to Say
Trump addressed the passing of the iconic James Bond star on Sunday November 1.
“The legendary actor, 007 Sean Connery, has past on to even greener fairways,” he began. “He was quite a guy, and a tough character. I was having a very hard time getting approvals for a big development in Scotland when Sean stepped in and shouted, Let him build the damn thing. That was all I needed, everything went swimmingly from there. He was so highly regarded & respected in Scotland and beyond that years of future turmoil was avoided. Sean was a great actor and an even greater man. Sincere condolences to his family,” he concluded.

Tragically, Connery passed away on October 31 at the age of 90. His wife Micheline Roquebrune was at his bedside when he passed away. She also revealed that he had been battling dementia. “It was no life for him. He was not able to express himself latterly,” she told The Daily Mail. “At least he died in his sleep and it was just so peaceful. I was with him all the time and he just slipped away. It was what he wanted. He had dementia and it took its toll on him. He got his final wish to slip away without any fuss.”
Additionally, she shared the last picture that they took together. The image shows Roquebrune looking at him lovingly while he held her hand.
