Trump brother Robert’s ex bids him farewell in post, won’t be at WH service

Robert Trump’s ex-wife has paid tribute to him on Instagram — as she revealed that neither she nor her son had been invited to his White House funeral service.

Blaine Trump, who was married to President Trump’s younger brother from 1984 until 2008, posted a photo from their wedding renewal in the 1990s, as friends and family prepared to bid farewell.

The photo showed the couple beaming at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, which bills itself as the “World’s First Elvis Wedding Chapel.”

As the president prepared a memorial for his brother at the White House Friday, Blaine wrote: “Godspeed Robert! I received this yesterday, reminding me of the time we renewed our wedding vows.

“Thank you for the memories. it was a great ride.”

Robert, who died at age 71 on Aug. 15 in New York City, had adopted Blaine’s son, Christopher, from her first marriage.

Blaine added: “Christopher and I will be thinking of you today and sad we will not be at your funeral today but we are there in spirit.”

Robert wed longtime love Ann Marie Pallan in March, as revealed by The Post’s Cindy Adams. She will join the president and 200 guests at the service, which was due to be held in the East Room of the White House. The president is expected to cover all costs personally.

Robert, like his brother, was in the New York real estate business, running a majority of the remaining company founded by their father, Fred Trump Sr.

The president visited his brother just one day before his death, calling him his “best friend” in a statement reacting to his passing. “His memory will live on in my heart forever. Robert, I love you. Rest In Peace,” the statement concluded.

Details of Robert’s illness have not been released, however, he had been sick for several months, according to reports.
