In a post on Truth Social, President Trump said: “Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, ALL Americans.
“Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loved so much, North Carolina.
“Silk was with her all the way, and at her passing.
“There was no better TEAM anywhere, or at any time!
“Diamond’s death was totally unexpected, probably her big and precious HEART just plain gave out.
“Rest In Peace our Magnificent Diamond, you will be greatly missed!”
“Anyone who believes in the power of prayer please pray for Diamond,” Diamond’s sister Silk (Rochelle Richardson) said.
“Prayers for Diamond’s speedy recovery and for you, Silk, prayers for the strength to help see your sister through this health crisis while the Good Lord does his healing work,” one Twitter user commented under the post.
“There is much work still to be done in his name.
“Blessings to you both.”
My thoughts and prayers are with @DiamondandSilk as they mourn the loss of Diamond, who passed away today.
It was an honor to know Diamond – a PATRIOT. RIP. pic.twitter.com/3kZXeUDsyS
