"It raises questions about certain lines being blurred", said Sumit Ganguly, a political scientist at Indiana University, on PBS Newshour.
Trump Jr. was originally billed to give a foreign policy address on "Reshaping Indo-Pacific Ties: The New Era of Cooperation" at a business conference, immediately before remarks by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Trump Organization has licensing agreements with all its Indian business partners. Trump Jr said that the market for luxury apartments in India has discerning buyers who are widely travelled. An entrepreneur in the northern Indian region of Varanasi, Gaurav Kapoor said that the people of India are ready for such business ventures and that they have already been spending significant amounts of money to purchase such luxurious suits.

The Indian developers say the high-rise apartment complex boasting floor-to-ceiling windows, state of the art amenities and a "lifestyle concierge" has already clocked up sales worth almost $80 million.
Donald Trump Jr.is the U.S. president's eldest son who arrived in India using a family jet for a visit that would last an entire week. However that barrier has been breached multiple times over the past year, as the Trump hotels and resorts benefit from foreign governments and domestic groups hoping to curry favor with the president or buy access to his family.
On the development of luxury real estate projects in India, Trump Jr. stated that his business brought "authentic and truly global luxury" to India.
"With this trip to India, the Trump Organization is literally selling access to the first family", said Kathleen Clark, a law professor and ethics expert at Washington University in St. Louis. In April 2017, Eric claimed the the Trump Organization "would be doing 30 deals across the globe" were his father not the president; and as recently as Tuesday, Donald Jr. told English language Indian channel CNBC-TV18 that the organization was missing out on lucrative deals because of the family's promise to keep business and White House matters separate.
This is the astonishing Ferrari 488 Pista
Lighter than before, the 4-litre 90-degree twin-turbo V8 engine makes 709 bhp@8000 rpm and 78.57 kgm@3000 rpm (in 7th gear). The front features a Formula One-inspired S-Duct and front diffusers with a ramp angle to increase downforce.
And on Friday, Trump Jr. will deliver a foreign policy speech at an event with Prime Minister Narendra Modi - a speech that the USA embassy says it has no prior information about.
Friday's foreign policy speech is the best example of just how brazen Trump Jr.'s visit is.
The President's eldest son admitted it's hard to steer clear of politics in a local TV interview. "I've been coming to India for over a decade". The company has licensed its name to five real estate projects in India, including residential towers in Pune, Mumbai, Gurgaon and Kolkata and a proposed office tower also in Gurgaon, a suburb of India's capital also known as Gurugram. Considering the investigation into the U.S. president's campaign and actions, and the possibility that an early morning tweet could easily upend everything, that seems like a genuine risk that comes alongside being associated with the Trump brand.
The event organizers and the Trump Organization both declined to comment on the change to the schedule. That sparked a backlash from ethics watchdogs who are concerned the President and his family are putting a for-sale sign on United States policy.
