President Trump is visiting India today to “further strengthen the United States-India strategic partnership and highlight the strong and enduring bonds between the American and Indian people.”
Trump and Melania are being hosted by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and their first stop is Ahmedabad where a motorcade will drive from the airport to a stadium that is filled with cheering Indian citizens.
“India looks forward to welcoming @POTUS @realDonaldTrump . It is an honour that he will be with us tomorrow, starting with the historic programme in Ahmedabad!”

Trump and Melania entered the stadium to a roaring crowd of over 100,000 people and the song “Macho Man” played over the loudspeakers. Trump was beaming to see this. Then he turned and looked at the crowd and what he saw stunned him.
Thousand and thousands of cheering Indian citizens were wearing white Trump hats in anticipation of his arrival.

The crowd then settled down to listen to President Trump speak.
“America loves India, America respects India, and America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the Indian people. … The story of the Indian nation is a tale of astounding progress, a miracle of democracy, extraordinary diversity, and above all, a strong and noble people.”
Trump praised Modi as a “true friend” who has risen to greatness from his beginning as a poor tea-seller in India. He also credited India’s prosperity directly to such a strong leader.
“India’s rise as a prosperous and independent nation is an example to every nation all over the world and one of the most outstanding achievements of our century.”
Democrats don’t want to see this so we have to show them how much the world loves Trump!
