Donald Trump Jr. released a statement following the news of the passing of radio legend Rush Limbaugh, describing him as a “bonafide radio pioneer” and explaining that getting to know him on a personal level remains one of the “highlights of the past several years.”
“Rush Limbaugh is a bonafide radio pioneer and a true American icon. One of the highlights of the past several years for me on a personal level was getting the opportunity to get to know Rush and his amazing family,” Donald Trump Jr. said in a statement.

Limbaugh’s wife Katheryn announced his passing on Wednesday, which followed his year-long battle with advanced-stage lung cancer.
Kathryn Limbaugh said:
