Maryanne Trump Barry was a retired federal judge and older sister of President Donald Trump
Maryanne Trump Barry, 86, the oldest sibling of former US President Donald Trump, was found dead on Monday in her New York City apartment.
Police found her lifeless body inside the 5th Avenue apartment in Manhattan’s Upper East Side around 4am, according to the Post Millennial. The city’s medical examiner has not yet announced the cause of death, but police said there were no signs of trauma or foul play.
Born in 1937, Maryanne was the oldest of the five Trump brothers and sisters. She was nominated to the US District Court in New Jersey by President Ronald Reagan in 1983, and to the US Court of Appeals (Third Circuit) by President Bill Clinton in 1999. Barry Trump became an inactive judge in 2016 and retired in 2019, leaving the public eye during her brother’s presidency.
“I knew better even as a child than to even attempt to compete with Donald,” she told New York magazine in 2002. “I wouldn’t have been able to win. He was building models when he was very young. Huge buildings.”
