Trump mocks Biden for getting ‘back seat’ at Queen’s funeral

‘If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there’: Trump claims US president Joe Biden’s seating position shows a lack of respect.

Businessman and former United States (US) Donald Trump has mocked his successor Joe Biden following his seating position at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral on Monday 19 September.

According to the Daily Mail, Biden, who was among 2000 distinguished guests at the Queen’s send-off at Westminster Abbey, was seated 14th rows back — a position Trump says he would not have been placed had he attended.


Trump, who was ranting on his social media platform Truth Social, said that it showed there is “no respect” for the United States anymore.

Continuing his rant, the former US president went on to say it was a good time for Biden to get to know “leaders of certain Third World Countries”.

“This is what’s happened to America in just two short years. No respect! However, a good time for our President to get to know the leaders of certain Third World countries. 

“If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there—and our country would be much different than it is right now!” he wrote.

Trump, who made his money in real estate, said “location is everything”.

The businessman made these claims ignoring the fact that Biden, unlike other world leaders who attended the Queen’s funeral service, arrived in an armoured presidential limousine nicknamed “The Beast” — which is, in fact, Trump’s favourite limo.

According to US Today, the White House said that Joe Biden and US First Lady Jill Biden were the only ones who were invited. They were told by British authorities that they would not be cleared to bring an American delegation with them because of a “high demand” for seats at the funeral.

On Monday, Trump did, however, pay tribute to the Queen and offered her loved ones his “sincere condolences”.

“What a grand a beautiful lady she was — there was nobody like her,” he wrote on Truth Social.

In a tribute to the Queen that was published by the Daily Mail on 10 September, Trump lauded the late Queen’s “grace, charm and nobility”.

“She was an icon to the world and her loss is felt by billions,” he said in part.
