President Donald Trump’s younger brother Robert was recently admitted to a hospital in New York City, where he is being treated for an undisclosed medical issue.
While the details of Robert’s condition are unknown, sources close to the situation described the president’s brother as “very ill,” according to ABC News.
Trump, who has a “very good relationship” with his brother, is scheduled to stop in New York City this afternoon to visit Robert.
“I have a wonderful brother,” the president told reporters. “We’ve had a great relationship for a long time, from day one. And he’s in the hospital right now, and hopefully he’ll be alright, but he is pretty — he’s having a bad time.”
As for Trump’s visit to New York, a police source told New York Daily News the NYPD would coordinate with the U.S. Secret Service to provide an escort to the hospital for the president.
Robert was also reportedly also hospitalized in June. He was treated for more than a week in the neurosciences intensive care unit of Mount Sinai hospital. On its website, the hospital described its NSICU as offering “state of the art, compassionate care of patients who suffer from subarachnoid hemorrhage, acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, subdural hematomas, coma, tumors of the brain and spine, severe or prolonged seizures, neuro-infections, [and] spinal cord injury among others.”
