Luis Dias, a pediatrician and founder of children's charity Child's Play India, told NPR that Trump Jr's remarks were "condescending" and "a sweeping statement about a demographic he has never really seen or spent time with, either in India or the rest of the world".

"While he will be in office, there will be some self-imposed rules on new deals", said the eldest son of the US President.

Donald Trump Junior, executive vice president, Trump Organisation said, "Mumbai has emerged as one of the most preferable destinations for luxury real estate and we are honoured to have a place within the city".

"I expect that the US State Department, including US Embassy Delhi, will treat Mr. Trump no differently than it would any other American individual visiting on private business, and will take every effort to avoid any perception of special treatment or a conflict of interest", Senator Bob Menendez said in the letter, a copy of which was given to Reuters.

Menendez wrote a letter as he said that he was concerned about a speech tomorrow at business summit by Donald J. Trump Jr. which may send a "mistaken message that he is speaking on behalf of Donald Trump".

He continued: "It's sort of a shame".

The president's eldest son is set to give a foreign policy speech at a global business summit in New Delhi on Friday titled "Reshaping Indo-Pacific Ties: The New Era of Cooperation" alongside India's prime minister, Narendra Modi, and other high-ranking Indian government officials. During his trip, he will dine with buyers of the Trump-branded apartments in at least two cities, and his visit was heralded by a series of front-page ads in two of the country's biggest newspapers.

Media access to Trump Jr. has been limited, with only hand-picked journalists allowed access to events that he attends.

"I know some of the most successful businessmen in the world, and some of them are the most miserable people in the world", Trump Jr added.

The Trump Organization has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners.

Trump Jr. also unveiled the newly fashioned show residence of the tower, designed by renowned interior designer Hirsch Bedner Associated (HBA), and got a glimpse of Mumbai from the 78th floor of the building.

The 37-year-old Lodha Group is ranked the largest in India by sales, having clocked over Rs 8,200 crore last year from 7,200 units across various projects. In Pune, a Trump-branded project has been built.

The company, however, has not signed any new project here since Donald Trump took over as the president in January 2017. Trump Jr. has made several visits to India over the years and has repeatedly talked of great business opportunities in the country.
