Maryanne Trump Barry, Donald Trump’s older sister, dead at 86

Maryanne Trump Barry, the older sister of former President Donald Trump, died Monday morning at age 86.

She was found in her home on the Upper East Side, in Manhattan, and the cause of death is unknown at this time, the New York Times reported.

A representative for Trump did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Although a vocal supporter of her brother’s business and political ambitions, Barry last made headlines when she was secretly recorded criticizing Trump by her niece, Mary L. Trump.

Barry, a former federal judge, spent decades in the legal world before retiring in February 2019 amid an investigation over alleged tax fraud stemming from her father, Fred Trump’s, real estate empire.

The eldest of Fred’s children, Barry made a name for herself in 1974 when she became an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey. She was one of only two women in the office.

In 1983, she was nominated by President Ronald Reagan to a seat on the  United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
