Robert, I Love You,” Trump tweeted Friday night. “Rest In Peace!”
“I think he’d be greatly honored,” Trump said earlier this week at the idea of a WhiteHouse funeral for his brother. “He loves our country. He loved our country so much.”

The event marked one of the rare instances during which a deceased person is brought to the White House.
The last instance was in 1963, after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.
