Donald and Melania Trump visit the Taj Mahal on their trip to India. 

After a 20-minute drive, the motorcade arrived close to the Taj Mahal where everybody transferred to a “golf cart motorcade” for a short ride.

The usually overcrowded streets leading to the UNESCO World Heritage Site were totally empty.

The very peaceful and enchanting atmosphere as the sun was going down. Many birds but not monkeys at this stage.

Soon after 5 pm, POTUS and FLOTUS stood watching the beautiful white marble mausoleum located on the bank of the Yamuna River.

A few minutes before them, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner also stood on the same spot for the photographers.

POTUS and FLOTUS walked together to the mausoleum which they visited while the pool stayed behind next to the small bench where Princess Diana sat alone on February 11 1992, in an image that soon became iconic.

”Really incredible, an incredible place”, said POTUS once again as he walked back from the mausoleum to the entrance of the site.

Back in the “golf cart motorcade” at 5:55 pm then in the regular motorcade at 6 pm.

We are rolling, heading to Agra Air Base.
