In a slap to faces of Republicans and former President Donald Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper said that it would be “clever” for President Biden to invite former President Donald Trump to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
According to The Hill, Tapper explained that the United Kingdom is asking each country to decide on their own who they want to send to the funeral.
“I mean, the U.K. has made it very clear, that’s up to the president. He’s invited. He can bring whatever delegation. So obviously, Obama, you know, Carter, Bush, no-brainers. What about Trump? Will he invite Trump?” Tapper asked.
Tapper then said, “I think that the clever move is to invite him and see if he goes. I don’t think former President Trump would want to be subordinate on Air Force One, and I think probably he prefers his own plane anyway.”
After Queen Elizabeth’s death Trump took to social media and said that he “never forget Her Majesty’s generous friendship, great wisdom, and wonderful sense of humor. What a grand and beautiful lady she was—there was nobody like her!”
