Joe Biden received criticism from Donald Trump when the president said he would have received a better seat for the Queen’s funeral on Monday while sitting 14 rows back.
The former president claimed that it demonstrates how drastically Britain’s “respect” for the US has decreased since Biden’s time in office and suggested that Biden start attempting to develop relationships with leaders of “third world countries” instead.
Along with other heads of state and dignitaries, Biden and the First Lady, Jill, were invited to the Queen’s special funeral service in Westminster Abbey on Monday afternoon.

Approximately 2,000 mourners were crammed into the revered cathedral, but because invitations were only extended to current world leaders, former President Trump was left out. Nevertheless, the MAGA leader paid tribute to the late Queen in an open letter by complimenting her grace, charm, and dignity.
Trump pointed out that Biden had been sitting seven seats back, behind the president of Poland.
“This is what’s happened to America in just two short years. 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!”,said Trump.
Biden has continuously denigrated America’s closest ally throughout his term. He removed a bust of Sir Winston Churchill that had been given to Trump by the British Embassy as soon as he entered the Oval Office.
The comparison he made in July between Britain’s relationship with Ireland and Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian people set up a tremendous response and condemnation.
