President Donald Trump’s younger brother, Robert Trump, has been hospitalized in New York, according to the White House.
The president is expected to visit his 72-year-old brother at a hospital in Manhattan on Friday, according to White House spokesman Judd Deere. Trump was already scheduled to visit his property in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Friday.
The White House did not immediately release details about why Robert Trump had been hospitalized, but officials said that he was seriously ill.
Trump “has a very good relationship with his brother who is very special to him,” Deere said.
Robert Trump had previously worked for his older brother as a top executive at the Trump Organization. Once a regular bold face name in Manhattan’s social pages, he has kept a lower profile in recent years.
He married his longtime girlfriend, Ann Marie Pallan, in March, according to the New York Post. He divorced his first wife, Blaine Trump, more than a decade ago.
In a 2016 interview with the New York Post, he described himself as a big supporter of his brother’s run for the White House.
“I support Donald one thousand percent,” Robert Trump said.
