Donald Trump Jr: The seven minute appearance at Trump Towers in Pune

Donald Trump Jr

Trump Jr has also been accused of cashing in on the presidency by offering the opportunity to have dinner with him as a reward to buyers of the luxury apartments, being developed in four cities across the country.

Praising the "poorest" populations of India wasn't the only eyebrow-raising thing Donald Trump Jr. said during his visit there on Tuesday.

The Trump Organization has also lent its brand to developments being built with local partners in Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.

Jordan Libowitz, communications director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, said: "Trump's company is literally selling access to the president's son overseas". And 80 percent of them live in rural areas, far from the glitzy capital city of New Delhi where Trump hawking his apartments.

Imagine, in a nation where 60 per cent of the people are poor (if we believe the latest World Economic Forum (WEF) report), a small group of super-wealthy can afford to stay in multi-crore houses boasting of floor-to-ceiling windows, state of the art amenities and a "lifestyle concierge". Apartments in the complex, which is scheduled to be completed by 2023, cost from $775,000 to $1.5 million.

President Trump has pledged to avoid any new foreign business deals during his term in office to avoid potential ethical conflicts. "To that end, I ask that you confirm that the State Department, including the Embassy, is not providing any special assistance or support for this visit", the Senator wrote.

"Post 2016 (after Donald Trump became president of United States), we have limited ourselves and we are not doing new international deals and that takes a big part of what we are doing right off the table".

His father is never out of the conversation for long even as his minders warn against asking him any political questi-ons.

"I'm here as a businessman", Trump Jr. said.

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.

On Feb. 20 he held meetings at Delhi's Oberoi Hotel with developers partnering with his firm in the upcoming Trump Towers project in Gurugram near Delhi. Harsh Patodia, chairman of Unimark, which is building them, says the response has been "phenomenal" and the "visit of Don Jr will certainly add to the momentum". "It's sort of a shame", he said. The tower is located in the upscale Kalyani Nagar neighbourhood of Pune.

"Not to say that there aren't hardships - I understand that and fully recognize that", Trump Jr said.

The president's eldest son, 40, is executive vice president of the Trump Organization, the global family real estate business that President Donald Trump still controls.

"After my surgery, I was determined to get back on my feet, clear my debt and put away some money", she says. Modi is the keynote speaker at the event.

The embassy was responding to questions about a letter released Wednesday by Sen.

Mr Trump Jr may have thought he was complimenting India's poor, Goa paediatrician and charity founder Dr Luis Dias told media outlet NPR. We are focusing on our operations.
