Trump Jr. Blurs Line Between Business And Politics In India Trip

Newspaper ads carried in nearly every major Indian newspaper promise that buyers who order apartments in the development by Thursday will receive "a conversation and dinner" with Mr Trump Jr a day later.

In all 254 flats of different sizes are up for sale costing almost 820,000 USA dollars and above.

Watchdog groups told The Post that the advertisements to meet Trump Jr. and him delivering a foreign policy speech while on a business trip created a complicated situation. The younger Trump's visit this week is expected to reinforce that trend, they said, even as many other luxury housing towers have hundreds of empty units.

"The venue and date of the dinner have been kept secret, and will only be informed to those who make a booking with us", said the marketing executive.

The eldest son of President Trump was arriving on the family jet for the week-long visit that will include meetings and dinners with investors, businessmen and prospective buyers who have shown interest in the four Trump Tower projects under construction in the cities of Gurugram, Mumbai, Pune and Kolkata.

The rest of the details of Donald Trump Jr.'s itinerary are hazy despite repeated emails to the Trump Organization and its Indian partner Tribeca.

Critics wary as Google's ad-blocking crackdown
Chrome will tackle the problem of disruptive advertising by removing ads from sites that do not follow the Better Ads Standards . As a result, the company will now be blocking some ads in an effort to make searching the web easier.

Trump Jr.is scheduled to speak at the Global Business Summit in Delhi, which will be held on February 23 and 24. "What is to stop a foreign national with interests before the USA government from purchasing a flat, or tagging along with someone who did, simply to ask Don Junior to raise some issue or concern with his father?" The family earned up to $3 million in royalties in 2016.

The overlap between the Trump Organization's interests in India and the president's negotiations with the country have made some uneasy.

If the brand of Trump Towers isn't enough, the chance to meet the son of President Trump is an effective way to target buyers interested in the property.

The Trump Organisation has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners, who build the properties and acquire the Trump name in exchange for a fee. An apartment in the Trump Towers complex in Gurgaon runs between $775,000 and $1.5 million.

He will give an address on "Reshaping Indo-Pacific Ties: The New Era of Cooperation" at a global business summit on Friday evening where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also be present and speak on the topic of "Preparing India for the Future".

And in November previous year, President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, was criticised for speaking at a global entrepreneurs summit in Hyderabad, with some saying the summit had become more about Ms Trump and her namesake brand than the wider issue.
