The striking luxury property advertisement marked Trump's son's visit to India.
"Trump is here. "The ad, which has been repeatedly published in recent days, marks the arrival of Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., who is in New Delhi to sell luxury apartments and pay close attention to the wealthy Indians and have bought residential units in the Trump-branded real estate development project outside the capital of India.
The advertisement in the paper promises buyers who book an apartment on the day Thursday will have a chance to "talk and have dinner" with Trump Jr. a day later.
Trump's past president has promised to avoid new foreign business during his tenure in order to avoid potential conflict of interest. Although the project promoted by Trump Jr in India was signed before his father was elected, ethics experts have long regarded, the use of Trump's name to promote business as a problematic issue.
Some agreements with foreigners who last year were boasted by Trump children "expands the definition of the businesses that have been worked on," said Scott H. Amey, legal counsel for the non-partisan Government Monitoring Project in Washington.
"The president should put public interests above his business interests. It is not possible if his son travels around the world and is trying to trade while his father is president, "he said.
This is not the first time President Trump's children have raised concerns about ethics while they continue to promote the Trump brand worldwide. Trump Jr. and his brother Eric opened a Trump-branded golf club in Dubai. [my/jm]
