New York (AP) -- President Donald Trump ' s younger brother , Robert Trump , a businessman known for an even keel that seemed almost incompatible with the family name, died Saturday night Robert Trump had reportedly been hospitalized in the intensive care unit for several days that same month.

“It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight,” the president said in a statement. “He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.”

The cause of his death is unknown. According to the New York Times, he had experienced brain bleeds after a recent fall, and was on blood thinners. A CNN source said he had been sick for several months. Trump told reporters on Friday — the day of his hospital visit to his brother — that Robert was having a “hard time” with an unnamed health issue.

Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday before visiting him in Manhattan, “We’ve had a great relationship for a long time, from day one.” But much of their relationship was defined by conflict, according to some family members and colleagues.

“Donald had discovered early on how easy it was to get under Robert’s pale skin and push him past his limits; it was a game he never tired of playing,” Mary Trump, the niece of Donald and Robert, wrote in her recently published memoir. “Nobody else would have bothered — Robert was so skinny and quiet that there was no sport in tormenting him.”

Robert was the youngest of five children, and in contrast to his brother Donald, tended to avoid the spotlight. During his life he worked as business executive and real estate developer in various parts of the Trump family business.

According to a former Trump casino executive, John O’Donnell, an intense argument between Robert and Donald after the botched opening of a casino in 1989 “changed forever” their relationship. Robert stopped reporting to Donald after the incident, and wounds caused by the fight reportedly took years to heal.

Donald Trump , who was stopping in New York on the way to his golf club in nearby Bedminster, New Jersey for the weekend, told reporters Friday only that "he' s having a hard time." While far less famous than his older brother , Robert Trump , who was born in 1948, had long been an integral part of the

Robert did offer some support to Donald’s political career. When Trump ran for for the White House in 2016, Robert gave a full-throated endorsement for his bid. “I support Donald one thousand percent,” Robert told the New York Post. “I think he’s doing a great job. I think he’s got a great message.”

“If he were to need me in any way, I’d be there,” he added.

The brothers were photographed hugging after Trump’s election night victory in 2016. But after that, Robert rarely surfaced in public.

Robert Trump’s most notable public appearance since then may be his leading role in an unsuccessful lawsuit to block the publishing of Mary Trump’s memoir, which draws from personal experience with the Trump family and describes the president as “the world’s most dangerous man.”

Other members of the Trump family have expressed sadness about Robert’s passing on social media.

Robert Trump is survived by his wife Ann Marie Pallan, an adopted son from his first marriage, and two other siblings: Maryanne Trump Barry and Elizabeth Trump Grau,
