I love Indian media, says Donald Trump Jr

I love Indian media, says Donald Trump Jr

Trump junior is in India to promote a series of luxury apartment developments being marketed under his father's name.

Mehta came to notice soon after President Trump's November election victory, when pictures of him and two other Trump Indian real estate partners with the president-elect in NY made a big splash in Indian and American media.

Hours earlier, as criticism mounted that Trump Jr. was pushing an ethics boundary by making what seemed to be a foreign policy speech at the Global Business Summit, conference organizers hurriedly changed the speech's title.

The President's son was originally slated to speak on "Reshaping Indo-Pacific ties: The new era of cooperation", and this led to criticism that a foreign policy speech during a business visit was unethical. With summer already approaching, it's already far too warm to be lighting cosy fires in New Delhi.

"Mumbai has emerged as one of the most preferable destinations for luxury real estate and we are honoured to have a place within the city", said Trump Jr., who is Executive Vice President, Trump Organisation, as he recalled his association with the project from inception.

"Given that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and multiple government ministers will speak at the same event, I am concerned that Trump's speech will send the mistaken message that he is speaking on behalf of the President, the administration or the U.S. government, not as a private individual, or that he is communicating official American policy", Menendez said.

Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday cut a ribbon to mark the completion of construction of the city's first and only 78-storey ultra-luxury Trump Tower Mumbai, which will likely be the first in India to offer the facility of a "private jet" service to its residents.

"I am concerned that Mr. Trump's speech will send the mistaken message that he is speaking on behalf of the president, the administration or the United States government, not as a private individual, or that he is communicating official American policy", Sen. Full-page glossy advertisements urged buyers paying a booking fee of about $38,000 by Thursday to "join Mr. Donald Trump Jr. for a conversation and dinner" on Friday.


The Trump Organization has also pledged not to sign new deals during Trump's presidency.

Mr Trump Jr was scheduled to speak at the same business summit as Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday.

The State Department says he is traveling as a private citizen.

Trump Organization, run by Trump Jr. and his brother Eric Trump since the president was sworn in, has five ventures in India-the largest number of projects outside the U.S.

Trump Jr. holds no official role in the administration, unlike his sister and her husband, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. All the projects, which are being built by Indian developers, bear the Trump name from licensing agreements.

India is Trump Organisation's biggest global market, with four real estate projects underway in Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, and Gurugram.

The US president has ceded control of the Trump Organization to his adult sons, but refused to divest his assets, sparking concerns about a conflict of interest.
