Barry was a federal judge in New Jersey and retired from her position in 2019. The former president and his sister were reportedly very close but tensions arose when their niece, Mary L. Trump, promoted a memoir about the family and released audio showing Barry critical of her brother.
Trump’s first wife, Ivana, passed away in 2022 while his younger brother Robert passed away in 2020. Trump held a funeral service for Robert at the White House.
