Trump mocks Biden at Queen’s funeral

For once, US President Joe Biden is not playing first fiddle at the funeral service for the late Queen at London’s Westminster Abbey. He and his wife Jill are seated relatively far back in the church. This is a godsend for his predecessor Donald Trump.

Former US President Donald Trump is known to be particularly good at gossip. And so he again mocks his successor, Joe Biden. The reason: Biden’s seat at Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral, which took place Monday at London’s Westminster Abbey.

In fact, incumbent US President and First Lady Jill Biden didn’t exactly hold a top position at the memorial. On the contrary, the two were 14 rows behind King Charles III. placed in the back of the church.

On his social media platform Truth Social, Trump now claims that America has lost respect on the international stage under Biden’s leadership. “It happened to America in just two short years. No respect,” writes the 76-year-old, adding, “If I were the president, they wouldn’t have put me there — and our country would be very different than it is now! ”

In another post on the platform, Trump emphasizes the importance of location: “In real estate, as in politics and in life, location is everything!”

The Bidens traveled individually

Biden was one of the few heads of state to drive his own car to the funeral service at Westminster Abbey. As a result, he and his wife Jill would have missed the pre-arrival timeslot. So the Bidens apparently had to wait at the entrance before entering the church, as a procession as part of the service took precedence.

Other heads of state, who were among the 2,000 guests at the event, traveled on buses. It’s possible the Bidens’ solo approach and late arrival meant their seats were so far back.

As “The Telegraph” reports, state funeral protocol also stipulated that Commonwealth government leaders should be given precedence over other heads of state. In addition to incumbent Prime Minister Liz Truss, other former British heads of government gathered at Westminster Abbey to bid farewell to the Queen: John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson were on the scene with their husbands. They were also prominent. For the Bidens it was probably an exception: please be at the back of the queue.
