Washington: “I know India and I understood those young people (Kimberly, Donald Trump Jr and Ivanka) that you mentioned. They’re very good young people. And I know their relationship to India is very good and so is mine,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
Trump was responding to a question about the role of the three important members of his family who will be playing the election cycle along with respect to the Indian American community.
“Would Kimberly, Donald Trump Jr., and Ivanka Trump, who are very popular among Indian Americans, would be campaigning on your behalf among the Indian Americans with your views on India-US relationship?” the president was asked.
“I appreciate the nice sentiments. They think (Kimberley, Don Jr and Ivanka) a lot of India and so do I. And think a lot of your prime minister (Narendra Modi),” Trump said in response to the question.
“We have great support from India and PM Modi. I think Indian people would be voting for Trump,” the US President said.
Donald Trump always describes himself as the best friend ever of India. In the 2016 elections, the Trump family had approached the Indian American community and had held meetings with the community members and visited Hindu temples.
On this year’s Independence Day of India, Trump had also sent his best wishes to PM Narendra Modi and the country.
