The former president and Diamond and Silk’s verified Twitter account both reported Monday night that Diamond had passed away. 51 years old.
According to their 2020 book, “Uprising,” both ladies, sisters named Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, respectively, were born in 1971, with Diamond making her public debut on Thanksgiving Day.
On his Truth Social platform, former President Donald Trump said, “Our beloved Diamond of Diamond and Silk has just gone away at her home in the state she loved so much, North Carolina,” calling her passing “very awful news for Republicans.”
Her demise had no recognized reason. “Diamond’s death was very unexpected,” Trump stated.
The world recently lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity, according to the couple’s verified Twitter account.
Any donations were requested to go to a crowdfunding website’s memorial campaign page.
The Diamond and Silk Twitter account requested prayers for Diamond in late November. It was unclear why precisely. Anyone who believes in the efficacy of prayer is urged to pray for Diamond, the message said.
The sisters were up on a portion of the Deep South’s lush land, where their father’s father and grandparents were landowner farmers, according to the autobiographical book “Uprising,” yet they were not without class, taste, or an anchor.
When Trump ran for president in 2016, the two ladies attracted attention by endorsing him on their YouTube channel. Once being lifetime Democrats, the pair claims they switched parties in order to support Trump after he announced his candidacy in 2015.
