It seems like the US Prez can’t get over the love & warmth he received on his recent trip to India. After addressing the strength of a massive 50-60,000 people during his visit to the country & addressing the crowd at the Motera stadium in Ahmedabad, Trump apparently felt hard to get enthused while speaking to a gathering of 15,000 at South Carolina.
On Saturday, while addressing the rally, the US President said, “I was with the Prime Minister of India, Modi. Great guy, loved by the people of India. And we had an amazing thing. And I went in, and here’s the problem. This is a big crowd. And normally I like talking about my crowds because I get the crowds like nobody, but I just got back from 40 or 50 or 60,000 people and now I’m coming here. What does this place hold, 15? It’s hard to be enthused. You understand that?”
Adding how worthwhile his trip was, he said, “I may never be excited again about a crowd after going to India. Think of this, they have 1.5 billion people. We have 350, so we’re doing pretty well, I’ll tell you what, but I love this crowd, and I love that crowd too. Tell you they have a great love for …. They have a great love. They have a great leader, and they have a great love for the people of this country. That was really a worthwhile trip.”
Trump, along with his wife Melania Trump, daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, & a high-level delegation, made their maiden visit to India on February, 24. For their 36-hour visit, they first reached Ahmedabad’ Motera stadium for addressing the “Namaste Trump” event. Then, to visit the Taj Mahal, the Trump family flew to Agra & then reached the National capital for receiving a ceremonial welcome at Rashtrapati Bhavan. After which, both Trump & Modi sat down for delegation-level talks & finalised upon three agreements.
While Trump was in India, Delhi, on the other hand, saw high voltage violence against the CAA & when asked about the same, Trump said, “I heard that, but I didn’t discuss that with him (Modi).” And, about the law he said, “I want to leave that to India”.
