The family of the former President of the United States is in mourning following the death of Maryanne Trump Barry. The 86-year-old woman, who was the eldest sibling of Donald Trump, had served as a United States federal judge and a prosecutor. She resided in New York and died in her home in Manhattan.

Both Reuters and The New York Times, among others, reported the news of Maryanne Trump Barry's death. The 86-year-old woman had passed away at home, and her body was discovered on Monday morning.

Maryanne Trump Barry had an extensive career before Donald Trump became the President of the United States. In 1983, then-President Ronald Reagan appointed her as a judge of the District Court in New Jersey.

Later, Bill Clinton nominated Maryanne Trump Barry for the federal appellate court. However, her career on the judiciary bench ended in 2019.

Maryanne Trump Barry's Complicated Relationship with Her Brother

The New York Times highlights that Donald Trump greatly valued his sister's input. Nevertheless, she consistently criticized the leader of the American Republicans and the former president.

However, a significant downturn in their relationship occurred when the President's niece, Mary L. Trump, released a recording in which Maryanne Trump Barry spoke critically of her brother using quite unfavorable terms. This recording was released as part of a family memoir.

In total, Donald Trump has two other siblings. His brother, Robert Trump, passed away in 2020 after a long illness. The former president has often remarked on his strong bond with his siblings, which lasted until their deaths.

It's worth noting that Donald Trump will likely run for the Office of the President of the United States again. The U.S. elections are scheduled for 2024. Joe Biden has confirmed he will seek re-election.
