Regarding Joe Biden’s seating position at the late Queen’s state burial, Donald Trump has made fun of him.
In the south transept of Westminster Abbey, Mr. Biden was seated in the 14th row, just seven seats from the back.
On his social media platform Truth Social, Mr. Trump published a photo of the gathered world leaders with a red arrow pointing to his successor.
The former president insisted that he would have been seated more forward if he had still been in office.
He claimed it was evidence that since Mr. Biden took office, America’s status had declined internationally.
Mr Trump wrote: “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.”
He added: “If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there – and our Country would be much different than it is right now!
“In Real Estate, like in Politics and in Life, LOCATION IS EVERYTHING!!!”
The Bidens were seated behind Polish President Andrzej Duda.
Commonwealth leaders were seated in front of those from other nations out of protocol.
The Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was therefore nine rows in front of the US President.
The president of Switzerland, Ignazio Cassis, was sitting next to Mr. Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
Andrzej Duda, the president of Poland, sat in front of the Bidens, and Petr Fiala, the prime minister of the Czech Republic, sat behind them.
Vice President Wang Qishan, who represented China, was sat on the same row as the Bidens.
It was unclear which leaders Mr Trump meant when he referred to “Third World countries”.
