Trump Jr. launches luxurious residential project in Pune

Donald Trump Jr. said any talk of his family profiting from his father's presidency is "nonsense" during a trip to India that has raised ethical concerns about using the name of the American president to promote worldwide business ventures.

Donald Trump's USA presidency has cost the family real estate firm a huge sum of money in lost business, his eldest son says, rejecting criticism that the family is cashing in on the office. "Because we put on all these impositions on ourselves and essentially got no credit for actually doing that ... for doing the right thing", he added.

The visit is set to include dinners and meetings with investors, prospective buyers, and businessmen who have expressed signs of interest in the four projects to be dubbed as Trump Towers.

"We certainly are aware that Mr Trump is in the region, that hes there as a private citizen, not as a official U.S. government in any capacity", State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters yesterday at her daily news conference when asked about Trumps sons India visit.

His visit prompted a USA senator to ask if the embassy in New Delhi had provided any aid or guidance. Sen.

Tiger named as US Ryder Cup vice captain
He served as a Ryder Cup vice captain at Hazeltine in 2016 as well as at last year's Presidents Cup alongside Stricker. I think what we decided at the time was really to do what was best.

Nauert said the United States embassy is in touch with the Secret Service, because he is provided Secret Service protection.

"I think there is something about the spirit of the Indian people that's unique here to other parts of the emerging world", Trump Jr. said in an interview with CNBC-TV18. Trump Jr. serves as the executive vice president of the business corporation that was founded by his father known as the Trump Organization.

Media access to his events in the country has been limited and only news organizations chosen by his team have had access to him. The largest project of the Trump Towers is found in Gurugram which is a city that is growing at a tremendous rate just outside of New Delhi which offers over 250 condos for sale.

"I expect that the US State Department, including US Embassy Delhi, will treat Mr Trump no differently than it would any other American individual visiting on private business, and will take every effort to avoid any perception of special treatment or a conflict of interest", he said as he listed a series of questions to Juster on the visit of the son of the US president.

The Trump Organization has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners.
