US President, Donald Trump on Friday held a private White House funeral service for his younger brother, Robert.
According to Independent Uk, Bagpipes played alongside the procession as pallbearers carried Robert Trump’s casket into a hearse waiting near the North Portico of the White House. A service was held in the East Room, which has rarely been used for funeral services.
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 White House 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.
