    The president’s brother, Robert Trump, recently made headlines after attempting to block the publication of Mary L. Trump’s book "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man", saying it violated a confidentiality agreement relating to the estate of his father, Fred Trump, signed by Ms Trump 19 years ago.

    Real estate developer Robert Trump, the younger brother of the US president, has been admitted to a hospital in New York after "falling very ill", according to ABC News, citing sources.

    ABC News reported that White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed the hospitalisation, adding that the president and his brother "have a very good relationship" and that Donald Trump would be providing more details on the matter sometime later.

    In June, Robert Trump spent more than a week in the intensive care unit at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, reports say.

    The 72-year-old former top executive at the Trump Organisation filed a lawsuit in June on behalf of the family trying to stop the publication of a book by the president's niece Mary titled "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man". The lawsuit was overturned by a New York appeals court and the book was released on 28 July.

    The book tells the story of the Trump family in detail and describes how Donald Trump became the man he is today, while making it clear that its author does not want her uncle to be re-elected.
