“A very sad day, but at the same time a celebration of a wonderful and beautiful life,” former President Donald Trump wrote on Truth Social, his social media platform.

Donald Trump Jr.’s tribute followed shortly after. “In the tumultuous times of the last few years, with all the attacks that we faced,” Trump Jr. said, “she was the first person to call and see if maybe he wanted, or maybe needed, to move back in with her. That call was both the sweetest and most emasculating thing that ever existed. And she could do that with the best of wishes, and it was usually on purpose.”

Ivanka Trump also spoke of her mother, saying she “hated funerals,” with tears in her eyes as she spoke of the “pioneer, admired by men and women alike” for her “grace and beauty,” but also for her skill. business and his relentless work ethic.

Nearly two hours after the funeral began, pallbearers carried the casket outside with an end-of-service anthem performed by Christopher Macchio, who also sang at the Republican National Convention as the former president accepted his party’s 2020 nomination. Trump and his current wife, Melania, followed the body, followed by Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr.
