President Donald Trump went to see a movie while his older brother, Fred Trump Jr., died of a heart attack caused by alcoholism in 1981, according to a New York Times report on Trump's niece's forthcoming book.
No family members accompanied Fred Trump Jr., known as Freddy, to the hospital the night he died at age 42, Mary Trump wrote in her tell-all book, set to be published next week, according to The Times.
Mary said that Freddy and Donald were both abused by their father, Fred Trump, who favored Donald. She wrote that her grandfather would tell Freddy, "Donald is worth ten of you."
Freddy left the family real-estate business to become a pilot for Trans World Airlines, allowing Donald to ascend in the family business.
The White House responded to the book by claiming that Mary Trump wrote it to make a profit, rather than for the public interest, and denied her claims that the president's father, Fred Trump, was emotionally abusive.
"President Trump has been in office for over three years working on behalf of the American people – why speak out now?" White House deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews told Business Insider in an email. "The President describes the relationship he had with his father as warm and said his father was very good to him. He said his father was loving and not at all hard on him as a child."
Matthews did not respond to the specific allegation that Trump went to the movies while his brother was hospitalized.
