Donald Trump Jr., who was born to a multimillionaire father who himself inherited a great deal of wealth, has some thoughts on poor people.
Namely, isn’t it wild they can be happy?
Trump Jr. is in India, where the Trump Organization finalized a deal to sell its name to four properties. President Donald Trump pledged to do no new foreign deals while he was in office, but this one has proceeded because it was already in the works before the election.
At the onset of the trip, Trump Jr. sat down for an interview on Indian TV aired by NBC, where he talked about India’s less fortunate and how he was blown away by the fact they smiled.
“I don’t want to be glib, but you can see the poorest of the poor and there is still a smile on a face,” Trump Jr. said. “It is a different spirit that you don’t see in other parts of the world where people walk around so solemn, and I think there is something unique about that.
“I know some of the most successful people in the world, and some of them are the most miserable people in the world,” he added.
Condominiums in the Trumps’ newest development in Delhi—where the average citizen makes $4,600 a year—begin at $775,000.
People who put down down payments (approximately $38,000) will get a private meeting with the president’s son. Trump Jr. also plans on giving a foreign policy address.
