Cruel Twitter trolls have attacked Donald Trump after the death of his brother, saying “the wrong Trump died”.
The President’s younger brother died on Saturday night after suffering brain bleeds from a recent fall, according to reports.
Robert was rushed to hospital in New York earlier this week, before passing away a day later at the age of 71.
But just minutes after his death, tweets calling for the president’s death were posted using the hashtag #wrongtrump, which quickly became the number four trending topic on the website
President Trump said in an emotional statement last night: “It is with a heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight.”
A cause of death has not officially been revealed, but a family friend told the New York Times that Robert had been suffering brain bleeds and had not been able to speak on the phone for the last few weeks.
