According to protocol, Biden’s position at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral

As the Telegraph reports, at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, political leaders from Commonwealth nations outnumber those from the rest of the world, even if they come from smaller or less powerful countries. This modus operandi is what led President Biden to sit seven rows behind Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump mocked Biden

That didn’t stop Donald Trump from mocking Joe Biden, posting on Truth Social that he “wouldn’t have sat me back there” if he had been invited.

“This has happened in America in just two years. No respect! However, it is a good time for our President to meet the leaders of some Third World countries. If I were president, they wouldn’t have put me back there – and our Country would be a lot different than it is now!”, Donald Trump emphasized on social networks.
