Cause Of Death:  Donald Trump is mourning the death of Diamond Lynnette Hardaway, best known as one half of the “Diamond and Silk” combo, who died Monday night at the age of 51.

Hardaway was one of Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters, and his “unexpected” death was described as “very awful news for Republicans” by the former president.

“Really bad news for Republicans and frankly, all Americans,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Our beautiful Diamond, of Diamond and Silk, has just passed away at her home in the State she loves so much, North Carolina.”

The former president referred to Hardaway as “Magnificent Diamond,” and stated her sister Silk Herneitha Rochelle Hardaway was “with her all the way, and at her passing.”

“There was no better team anywhere or at any time,” Trump added.

“Diamond & Silk” rose to prominence during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign after they famously turned from lifetime Democrats to diehard Republicans after Trump’s presidential bid was announced a year before.

Throughout Trump’s presidency, the vloggers became social media stars and frequent Fox News guests, including appearances in the Oval Office with Trump.

“There has never been a better TEAM anywhere or at any time!” Diamond’s death was completely unexpected; most likely, her large and beautiful HEART simply gave out. “Rest in Peace, our Magnificent Diamond; you will be sadly missed,” he said.

In her honor, a GiveSendGo page has been established. A note on the page reads, “The World just lost a True Angel and Warrior Patriot for Freedom, Love, and Humanity!”

“Diamond forged a trail, centered on her enthusiasm and love for the entire race of humanity,” the statement reads. “The memory of her passing should forever live in our hearts. Please respect the privacy of Diamond’s family during this difficult time, but remember and enjoy the gift she provided us all.”

Hardaway’s health caused alarm in November, when the duo’s official Twitter account asked fans to pray for her.

“Anyone who believes in the power of prayer please pray for Diamond,” the tweet read, however, a reason for the sudden plea was never given.
