(PoliticalLookout.com)- President Donald Trump told the media on Saturday that he was mourning his “best friend,” his brother Robert Trump, following his passing in a New York hospital. It came just a day after the White House informed the media that President Trump would be paying a visit to the hospital to visit his brother, who was described as “Very ill.”
“He was not just my brother, he was my best friend,” President Donald Trump said in an official statement. “He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again.”
The president told reporters during a Friday press conference, before he visited his brother in the hospital, that his brother was “having a hard time.”
“I have a wonderful brother. We’ve had a great relationship for a long time, from day one,” he told the press.
Robert Trump has long been an advocate of his brother’s presidency, and while he never shared the same level of spotlight as President Trump, he had long worked for the family company and has been described as extremely likeable. He was the youngest child in the Trump family.
“His memory will live on in my heart forever,” President Trump said. “Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.”
As President Trump mourns the loss of his brother, Democrats on Twitter launched into a vile hashtag campaign suggesting that the “Wrong Trump” died. The #WrongTrump hashtag was trending on Twitter for hours over the weekend, with the social media giant taking no action to correct it. It makes you wonder what would have happened if a relative of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had died, and Republicans had used the hashtag “#WrongBiden.”
Can you imagine the outrage? Twitter would have immediately shut it down, banned accounts for promoting violence, and given the Democrats the material they need to call Republicans every name under the sun.
President Trump is expected to attend his brother’s funeral over the coming days, according to the press. In the meantime, we might expect Democrat supporters on Twitter to continue their heartless tirade against the Trump family.
