As of 11:45 Eastern, Trump had yet to say anything on Truth Social about his sister’s passing.
As CNN noted, Trump Barry was “selected by President Ronald Reagan to serve on the Federal District Court in New Jersey in 1983” and went on to serve in the 3rd Court of Appeals after a nomination from Bill Clinton. She worked into her eighties, retiring in 2019.
Her death follows that of Trump’s first wife, Ivana, the mother of three of his children, who passed away last year in her Manhattan home at the age of 73.
