“We are moving to have a phenomenal future together,” Trump said as he praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking India on a fast track growth with a chains of economic reforms & reforming the government, which he said is required in the US too. “I look forward to working with Prime Minister Modi,” he said, adding that the Indian leader is very energetic.
It was for the first time a presidential candidate organised an Indian American event this election season.
“I am a big fan of Hindus and I am a big fan of India. If elected, the Indian & Hindu community would have a true friend at the White House,” Trump said, adding that he has strong confidence in Modi & India.
“I was there 19 months ago and look forward to going there multiple times,” he said at the event organised for the Kashmiri Pundits and Bangladeshi Hindu terrorist victims.
