Donald Trump claimed Monday that President Joe Biden’s seating in the 14th row at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral reflected a lack of respect for him ― and that Trump would have gotten a better spot “if I were president.”
“This is what’s happened to America in just two short years,” Trump, who wasn’t invited to the queen’s funeral, wrote on his social media platform with an image of Biden being seated.
“No respect! However, a good time for our President to get to know the leaders of certain Third World countries. If I were president, they wouldn’t have sat me back there — and our Country would be much different than it is right now!”

Biden and first lady Jill Biden arrived late to London’s Westminster Abbey after their armored vehicle ― for which they received an exemption while other world leaders took the bus ― got stuck in traffic, according to Time magazine.
In addition, “Commonwealth realms and their leaders take precedence” in terms of seating, SkyNews noted.
Trump, nevertheless, prattled on: “In Real Estate, like in Politics and in Life, LOCATION IS EVERYTHING!!!”
