The New York Times reports:
Robert S. Trump, the younger brother of President Trump, died on Saturday night in Manhattan. He was 71. The White House, which announced his death, at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, did not give a cause.
Robert Trump, who took blood thinners, had experienced brain bleeds, which began after a recent fall, according to a family friend. President Trump went to Manhattan on Friday to see his brother at the hospital.
On Saturday, when Robert Trump was not expected to live much longer, the president called into the hospital from his Bedminster, N.J., golf club. He shortly held a news conference but did not mention his brother’s health. Friends who spoke to him said he was downcast.

Today is August 15 — the day Trump said he would be too busy to throw out the first pitch at the Yankees game. Surprise! He was golfing. https://t.co/vjKWufTbV8

Something tells me we’re not going to find out why Robert Trump died and something tells me we all know why.
