Want an evening out with Trump Jr? You're probably too late

Meanwhile Trump Jr's arrival was heralded, says The Times, by "breathless, full-page advertisements asking, 'Trump is here - are you invited?' Potential buyers have shelled out almost £30,000 for dinner and a chat with the President's son".

"Trump is here, are you invited?" Junior himself just had his moment of controversy for "liking" conspiracy tweets casting aspersions on a teenager who had survived the Florida shooting. It is true that President Trump, a super-rich businessman from the US, already has several business interests in India even before becoming America's premier.

The Post reportedly changed its headline.

Donald Trump Jr is being criticised for his "tone-deaf remark" about India's poorest residents during a visit there this week to promote Trump-branded luxury apartments. The report is based on 2013 data. Robert Menendez, ranking Democratic on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote that he expected the U.S. State Department and embassy would treat Trump Jr. like any other American on private business and "will take every effort to avoid any perception of special treatment or a conflict of interest".

The U.S. State Department, responding to questions from AP, said the embassy was supporting the Secret Service team responsible for Trump Jr. but otherwise had no role in his visit.

But it is not quite so straightforward.

The Trump Towers project comprises two striking glass facade towers of 23 stories each, with 46 single-floor, 5 BHK residences starting at INR 15 crore. "Of these, five to seven deals could have happened, but couldn't due to my father's presidency", Trump Jr said.

The development is a result of the coming together of two global powerhouses in the world of real estate, Trump Organization and Lodha Group.

Even though the Modi government may have faced a backlash from several quarters, Trump Jr. seems impresses with the reforms and said they were corrections in the right direction. "The irony is that, having taken so long to get this far, we can now only complete existing projects and not venture into new ones", he added. The Republican Hindu Coalition, the largest of its kind congregation of Hindu immigrants in the US, love Trump for many of the same reasons that they love Modi. "In the future, we will definitely". "People want to be able to say: 'Come, let's go have a drink at Trump Tower'".

Leading the cinema pack in box office sales are SM Mall of Asia (P10.56-M), SM Megamall (P8.87-M) and SM North EDSA (P8.65-M). Other celebrities including Robin Thede, Trevor Noah and Kerry Washington also applauded the movie.

While American real estate might have declared a break from Trump developments, Indian markets still hold lucrative prospects for the Trump organization.

Whether anything is illegal or unethical, in a more normal world, all of this lurid scandal would usually amount to bad news for a brand.

"Donald Trump Jr.is going to India to sell real estate for his family business". Maybe a word on China?

His comments about India's smiling poor also caught the attention of some on social media.

Because as we are well aware, the Trump brand, or indeed their Indian counterparts, are not immune to corruption.

Nauert said the US embassy is in touch with the Secret Service, because he is provided Secret Service protection.

He said that working with Chordiyas has been spectacular. The Trump Organization charges a licensing fee to its Indian partners who build the properties under the Trump name.

He also said that India is now more investment-friendly as the government keeps its promises, which attracts investors.
