Trump Jr. arrives in India to address

British writer and historian Patrick French called it an "abominable invitation to dinner with Trump Jr".

Trump Jr.is touring India this week to promote several Trump Tower real estate projects, but he will also give a speech titled "Reshaping Indo Pacific Ties: The New Era of Cooperation" during a global business summit Friday night, the Post reported.

Unimark Group, which is building the Trump Tower Kolkata along with Tribeca Developers and local real estate firm RDB Group, referred questions about the event to Tribeca.

The ads, which have run repeatedly in the past few days, herald the arrival not of the American president but of his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who is in New Delhi to sell luxury apartments and lavish attention on wealthy Indians who have already bought units in a Trump-branded development outside the Indian capital. The marketing materials, however, don't mention the president - his name and image, as well as that of his daughter Ivanka, who joined his administration, were removed from brochures, websites and billboards from projects in India and elsewhere in the world. Currently, the Trump Organisation has 5 projects in India, making the nation Trump brand's largest brand outside the US.

He will also visit the cities of Kolkata, where a new project is set to break ground, and Pune, the only project that has been completed of the four. As with most of its foreign deals, the Trump family licenses its name to the projects, collecting hefty royalty fees but avoiding risky investments. The Trumps and their partners are offering buyers the opportunity to become "members of the Trump family", with the promise of exclusive amenities such as an infinity swimming pool, a billiards room and valet services.

"Trump's company is literally selling access to the president's son overseas", said Jordan Libowitz, the communications director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). That relationship has also sparked concern about potential conflict of interest. "We know that father and son talk all the time, and discuss business", he added. While one luxury complex has already opened in Pune, other developments are in different stages of construction in Mumbai, Kolkata and Gurgaon. 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.
