Trump to visit brother hospitalized in New York

President Trump will be visiting his younger brother, Robert Trump, in a New York hospital on Friday, a senior administration official confirmed to reporters. The reason for the hospitalization is unclear, but he is said to be very ill. 

Mr. Trump told reporters Friday ahead of his visit that he's a "wonderful brother, we've had a great relationship"

"Hopefully he'll be all right, but he's having a hard time," the president said. 

Robert Trump is about two years younger than the president.

Over the summer, Robert Trump requested a temporary restraining order in an attempt to stop a book by Trump niece Mary Trump from being published. Her memoir, which is about President Trump, was published in July.
