Trump mocks Biden over seat in 14th row

- By Nick Allen in Washington

DONALD TRUMP has ridiculed Joe Biden over the seat given to him for the late Queen’s state funeral.

Mr Biden was placed in the 14th row, only seven from the back, in Westminste­r Abbey for the service on Monday.

The former president claimed had he still been in office, he would have been further forward. He argued it was a sign that the standing of the United States had fallen under Mr Biden’s presidency.

Mr Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social: “This is what’s happened to America in just two short years. No respect!”

Owing to protocol, Commonweal­th leaders were placed in front of those from other countries.
