Trump’s brother emerged from ICU for brain condition to file restraining order to stop niece’s tell-all book: report

Published

President Donald Trump’s younger brother emerged from a neurosciences intensive care unit to file a temporary restraining order to stop the publication of their niece’s tell-all family memoir.

Robert Trump spent at least 10 days at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where he was treated for a serious but undisclosed condition, and was discharged Sunday and filed the order Monday  through one of his older brother’s personal attorneys, reported The Daily Beast.

“Her attempt to sensationalize and mischaracterize our family relationship after all of these years for her own financial gain is both a travesty and injustice to the memory of my late brother, Fred, and our beloved parents,” Robert Trump said in a statement released 48 hours after his release. “I and the rest of my entire family are so proud of my wonderful brother, the president, and feel that Mary’s actions are truly a disgrace.”

Mount Sinai’s website says the hospital’s 16-bed NSICU specializes in “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.”

Robert Trump did not respond to multiple requests for comment, and his attorney Charles Harder — one of the president’s personal attorneys and Hulk Hogan’s lawyer during the defamation case that effectively killed Gawker.

Attorneys for Mary Trump, the daughter of the eldest Trump brother, Fred Jr., are expected to file their response soon, which is expected to center on public comments by other signatories of the 2001 agreement — including Donald and Robert Trump and their sister Maryanne — which they could argue invalidated the pact.

“She’s not allowed to write a book,” the president said last week. “You know, when we settled with her and her brother, who I do have a good relationship with — she’s got a brother, Fred, who I do have a good relationship with, but when we settled, she has a total… signed a nondisclosure.”

GOP operatives linked to Kayne West’s presidential bid in potential ‘spoiler’ effort: NYT

Published

on

There are questions as to whether Kanye West is running a "spoiler" bid for president to help re-elect his friend, Donald Trump, according to a new report by The New York Times.

"At least four people who have been active in Republican politics are linked to Kanye West’s attempt to get on the presidential ballot this year. The connection raises questions about the aims of the entertainer’s effort and whether it is regarded within the G.O.P. as a spoiler campaign that could aid President Trump, even as those close to Mr. West have expressed concerns about his mental health as he enters the political arena," the newspaper reported.
