Donald Trump Jr. to Deliver Foreign Policy Speech in India

Donald Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr. arrives in India on Monday to promote new Trump Towers and be a keynote speaker with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, raising concerns about mixing his father's family business interests with US foreign policy.

But Trump Jr. did not respond to a question from CNN outside the New Delhi meeting about whether his visit to the Trump Organization's biggest global market would fuel concerns about mixing business and politics.

During his week-long India visit, he would speak at Delhi's Global Business Summit on 23-24 February to be attended by PM Modi, politicians, and businessmen.

Donald Trump Jr. gives a thumbs-up beside his father after Trump Sr.'s debate with Hillary Clinton on September 26.

The full-page advertisement, which ran as the front cover of several Indian newspapers over the weekend, featured a picture of Mr Trump Jr together with text: "Trump is here".

Trump Jr. took on day-to-day control of the Trump Organization when his father became president in 2016.

For example, there is only one remaining USA producer of the high-quality aluminum alloy needed for military aerospace. The measures are meant to increase US production to 80 percent of capacity in both industries.

During his visit, Trump Jr will also visit Kolkata, where the construction of a project with 137 luxury units is set to soon begin. Trump Jr and his brother will serve as the trustees of the company for the duration of Trump's presidency.

Trump Jr. responded to the latest claims by arguing that he's been building relationships in India for years, reported BBC News, and that his itinerary during the trip was created to "steer clear of politics".

Mr Trump Jr, the son of the USA president and head of the family business, will be helping to drum up sales of opulent flats in four cities that could net profits of more than $1bn.

According to business partners in India, many units in the Trump Towers are selling about 30 percent per square foot higher than the current market rates. The projects are named after the elder Trump and are licensed by the his firm Trump Organisation, which is a private conglomerate owned by him. In fact, he will launch two real estate projects one in Gurgaon near Delhi and the other in the eastern city of Kolkata.

Talking about his trip earlier this month, Trump Jr. said, "India is such an incredible country and our brand has enjoyed tremendous success in the region for many years".

Trump's schedule in the coming days includes a dinner to mark the official launch of the Trump Towers development in Kolkata (later on Tuesday) and another with buyers of apartments in the Trump Towers in Gurgaon, outside New Delhi (on Friday).
