Former President Donald Trump expressed deep sorrow over the passing of his elder sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, praising her intellect and judicial career.
He noted that her life became difficult after he decided to run for President, as she faced relentless scrutiny from the media.
Despite her influential career in law, she resigned amid an ethics investigation in 2019. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)
Trump’s tribute to his sister. He starts out talking about her appearance, of course (“a truly beautiful woman, tall and elegant”), then immediately makes it about himself (“until I made it difficult for her…”). He’s such a jerk. pic.twitter.com/c1qyw1Gfhk

Trump emphasized her contributions and the loss felt by both the Trump family and the legal community.
“Her life was largely problem free, PERFECT, until I made it difficult for her when I decided to run for President,” Trump posted on Truth Social.
“The Fake News, and others, went after her mercilessly, and because of the fact that she felt it inappropriate, due to her position, to defend herself, it just never stopped!” he wrote.
“While tough and strong, she was made to suffer in those years from 2016 until her Retirement.”
“I will never forget the many times people would come up to me and say, ‘Your sister was the smartest person on the Court.’ I was always honored by that, but understood exactly what they meant—They were right! She was a great Judge, and a great sister. She will be truly missed!”
