The Washington Post reports:
The president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., is making what’s been dubbed an unofficial visit to India to promote his family’s real estate projects there. But he’s also planning to deliver a foreign policy speech on Indo-Pacific relations at an event with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Beginning Tuesday, the junior Trump will have a full schedule of meet-and-greets with investors and leading business leaders throughout India where the Trump family has real estate projects — Mumbai, the New Delhi suburb of Gurgaon and the eastern city of Kolkata.
Indian newspapers have been running full-page, glossy advertisements hyping his arrival and the latest Trump Tower project under the headline: “Trump is here — Are you Invited?” The ads also invited home buyers to plunk down a booking fee (about $38,000) to “join Mr. Donald Trump Jr. for conversation and dinner.”
An unelected member of the Trump family who supposedly doesn’t work for the White House is going to give a foreign policy speech with a world leader while selling luxury condos and selling the privilege of speaking to him. Gosh, a crazy person might consider that a giant honking conflict of interest.
