India’s Prime Minister Modi Plans Big Welcome for Trump

Feb. 12, 2020 (EIRNS)—Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is planning quite a welcome for President Donald Trump when he goes to India on Feb. 24-25, Trump indicated to reporters on Tuesday. In fact, Modi told him that there will be “millions and millions of people” out on the streets to greet him. “Maybe 5-7 million people just from the airport to the new stadium and you know, it’s the largest stadium in the world. He’s building it now. It’s almost complete,” Trump reported. The President then joked that after that, he’s not going to feel so good when he gets only 40-50,000 people out for a rally, as he did in New Hampshire on Feb. 10. He’s clearly looking forward to this trip, calling Modi “a friend of mine, he’s a great gentleman and I look forward to going to India.”

The President and First Lady will be going to New Delhi and also to Ahmedabad, Gujarat, the Prime Minister’s home state.
