The U.S. president made headlines this week after visiting the Queen of England.
Some critics believe that the said visit was more of a lavish family tour rather than a state-sanctioned endeavor.
Based on the official list of delegates, the president’s daughters Ivanka and Tiffany joined in the said U.K. trip. Spotted also in the tour were Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter-in-law Lara Trump.
Some people raised the possibility that the trip was made to expand the business foothold of the family. In retrospect, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. assumed the responsibility of managing the first family’s businesses since 2017.
Based on the president’s official statement, the people who joined in the trip hold a particular position in Trump’s administration. To note, Ivanka is a senior adviser, and Lara is Trump’s political strategist. The President also highlighted that the visit equipped the officials with the latest strategies and techniques in running their respective offices. Moreover, the U.S. officials agreed that there’s nothing wrong in spending some breather while visiting a beautiful European country.
Meanwhile, the royal family welcomed the U.S. top officials with a sumptuous ceremony followed by a tour around the Westminster. After the event, the first couple settled in the Winfield House along the Regent’s Park, while Trump’s children stayed in a luxury Corinthia hotel.
The U.S. president attended the 75thD-Day commemoration together with Justine Trudeau, Canada’s Prime Minister. After which, he talked to France President Emmanuel Macron.
Despite some doubts, the U.S. government stood firm that visiting the Queen is just one way of reestablishing goodwill and commitment to a foreign ally. The president is eying to expand bilateral relations and visit more countries in the coming months.
The U.S. top official made this trip abroad after facing several issues, including a strong call for his resignation.
