Former US President Donald Trump criticized the absence of his successor Joe Biden at the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday, in an interview with the ultra-conservative British channel GB News broadcast on Wednesday, assuring that he would be come if he was still in power.
“I believe he physically can't do it”, “I believe it's hard for him to do it physically”, said Donald Trump , 76, in an interview with Nigel Farage, former leader of the europhobic and anti-immigration Ukip party, converted television presenter.
Donald Trump, candidate against Joe Biden in 2024, said to himself ” very surprised” that the current president does not come to the coronation, judging this absence “very disrespectful”. Interviewed in a golf course that belongs to him in Scotland, Donald Trump assured that he would have come if he had still been in power.
Joe Biden, 80, will be represented by his wife Jill at the coronation. Never has an American president attended the coronation of a British monarch, American and British officials recently recalled.
The White House had insisted that the absence of Joe Biden otherwise known to be proud of his Irish roots “was no mark of contempt”. Joe Biden has already accepted the king's invitation to make a state visit to the United Kingdom.
