Donald Trump’s older sister, Maryanne Trump Barry has died. She was 86 years old and a former federal court judge. Her body was found dead at her apartment at about 4am. There were no signs of foul play.
The former president, Donald Trump did not make any comment or acknowledge her death, not even on his social media blog.
Barry who was a senior judge in the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit retired in 2019. She was appointed to the US District Court for the District of New Jersey by President Ronald Reagan in 1983.
She was later appointed to the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1999 by President Bill Clinton.
She retired while an investigation into judicial misconduct related to tax and financial fraud in relation to her brothers and her father was ongoing. The investigation however was closed and proved inconclusive.
Donald Trump’s three siblings have now died with the youngest, Robert Trump dying in August 2020 at 71.
RIP Maryanne Trump Barry
Fred Trump Jr died of a heart attack at a young age of 42 in September 1981.
Maryanne Trump had a bad relationship with her brother Donald Trump. His niece Mary Trump released audio recordings of Maryanne and published her statements in her book.
Maryanne had said of her brother, “All he wants to do is appeal to his base. He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my god, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.”
Apparently there was some attempt at reconciliation when Maryanne met up with Donald earlier this year in the summer at Bedminister in New Jersey.
Maryanne had one child with her first husband David Desmond, they divorced in 1980 and she married John Barry, a trail lawyer. He died in 2000 at the age of 60.
According to a Times report despite her harsh summation of her brother, Trump did heed his sister’s advice more often than that of his inner circle.
