Donald Trump has mocked United States president Joe Biden by claiming he would have gotten a better seat at Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral.
The state funeral was attended by several world leaders, and the former president stated he would have been closer to the front if he were still in charge. He also said that Biden’s placement shows how far the United States has fallen.
“If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there.” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social. “In Real Estate, like politics and in life, LOCATION IS EVERYTHING!!!”
In a second post he added: “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 say me back there-and our country would be much different than it is right now!”
Joe Biden’s seat
At the funeral held at Westminster Abbey, Biden was seated behind Andrzej Duda, the Polish president, and directly in front of Petr Fiala, the prime minister of the Czech Republic.
According to the Daily Mail, protocols state that Commonwealth leaders were placed in front of those from other countries, which is why Biden was nine rows behind his Canadian counterpart, Justin Trudeau.
The first few rows were occupied by King Charles III and members of the royal family, while guests were seated to the left, right and in front of the platform holding the monarch’s coffin.
On Monday morning, upon arriving at the abbey, the Biden family held hands. The president wore a black suit and tie. While the first lady wore a black Schiaparelli dress.
