Robert Trump, the younger brother of President Donald Trump, is hospitalized in New York, the White House confirmed Friday.

Trump is expected to visit his brother Friday in New York, a source familiar with the matter told CNN. The details of his condition remain unknown though he is described by several sources as “very ill.”

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed the hospitalization to ABC News, adding that the president and his brother “have a very good relationship” and that the president would be providing more details later.

“Can confirm the report that the President’s brother is hospitalized,” deputy press secretary Judd Deere told CNN.

A senior administration official said Friday that the President “has a very good relationship with his brother and his brother is very special to him.” Robert Trump was a former top executive at the Trump Organization. He’s one of four other siblings to the President.

In June, Robert Trump was hospitalized in the intensive care unit at Mount Sinai hospital in New York for more than a week.

Robert Trump was most recently in the news after he led a lawsuit on behalf of the Trump family seeking to stop publication of a tell-all book by the president’s niece, Mary, titled “Too Much and Never Enough”. The Trump family claimed Mary Trump’s book was a violation of a nondisclosure agreement she signed in connection to a financial settlement she received from the family years prior.

Robert Trump said at the time of the suit earlier this year that he was “deeply disappointed” in his niece’s decision to write such a book and that he and the “entire family” were “so proud of my wonderful brother, the president.”

Should Trump appoint a new Supreme Court Justice before the election?
