According to sources the eldest son of the US president is visiting India this week and will promote the Trump Towers development near Delhi. Meanwhile the critics say the Trump family is cashing in on the president's name. But Mr. Trump Jr has said he has been building relationships in India for years. Meanwhile the 47 storey towers in Gurgaon, close to the Indian capital, are being developed by the Trump Organization and local partners.
Accordingly the Trump Organization, formerly headed up by President Donald Trump, is an umbrella company for hundreds of investments in businesses including real estate. Donald Jr is now its executive director. Sources have added that India is the group's biggest property market outside the US, and in 2016 the Trump family earned up to $3m (£2.14m) in royalties from ventures in India.
Previously in November last year, President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, was criticized for speaking at a global entrepreneurs summit in Hyderabad, with some saying the summit had become more about Ms Trump and her namesake brand than the wider issue. Further critics have claimed the US president is continuing to profit from his family's business interests and furthermore they have also accused the Trump family of playing up its connections with the White House in order to influence business deals.
