Former President Donald Trump is claiming he would have gotten a better seat than President Joe Biden at Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.

Monday’s state funeral was one of the biggest gatherings of world leaders in years, to carry closure to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who died Sept. 8 at age 96.

Greater than 500 overseas heads of state, monarchs and dignitaries attended the event, together with Biden and first woman Jill Biden.

The primary household’s leaders have been positioned within the 14th row of the church’s south transept, seven rows from the again, The Times of London reported.

On his social media platform Truth Social, the previous president mocked Biden by posting {a photograph} that confirmed all of the assembled world leaders sitting within the abbey, with a purple arrow pointing to Biden seated towards the again. 

“If I have been president, they would not have sat me again there.” Trump wrote. “In Actual Property, like Politics and in Life, LOCATION IS EVERYTHING!!!”

In a separate publish on his platform, Trump later wrote: “That is what’s occurred to America in simply two quick years. No respect!”

A seating chart printed by The Instances of London reveals these seated apparently organized within the following order: the queen’s household, monarchs, leaders of the Commonwealth, and different world leaders. 

The Telegraph reported that leaders of Commonwealth international locations have been put in entrance of different leaders “resulting from protocol.”

Biden will not be associated to the queen, a monarch or a Commonwealth member.

Neither is Trump, due to this fact his placement would possible have been no totally different.
