Former President Donald Trump’s eldest sister has died at the age of 86.
Maryanne Trump Barry, who was a federal judge and prosecutor, died at her Upper East Side home in Manhattan, two unnamed sources told The New York Times. One source said she was found on Monday morning, and neither disclosed the cause of her death.
Maryanne was appointed by then-president Ronald Reagan in 1983 to serve as a judge in New Jersey’s US District Court. The ex-president’s lawyer at the time, Roy Cohn, reportedly helped her achieve the appointment during the Reagan administration.
She went on to become an federal appellate lawyer judge and retired in 2019, putting an end to a probe on if she violated judicial conduct rules for playing a role in fraudulent tax schemes with her siblings.
