Donald Trump, US president, hoped that he would see more than 10 million welcoming him in India. People came but not ten million online, only 10 thousand. Trump wants to show his country that he is also very respected & renowned outside the country.
Because of ongoing protests against new citizenship law in India & controversial decision to revoke Kashmir’s autonomy, Indian PM Narendra Modi is also waiting for such kind of hot news.
At first, Indian people welcomed him at Ahmedabad airport. Then, they took the president to the Motera cricket stadium in Gujarat. Their Trump started his speech With “Namase”. He praises about Indian PM Narendra Modi. On that day, due to a violent protest against citizenship law, at least 13 people died.
A bitter tariff war has started between these two countries since last year. In such cases, the prospects of a commercial contract are minimal. Mr. Although Trump is expected to sign a $ 25.2 billion deal, that has not happened.
Mrs. Madan says there is nothing to be disappointed about. She also said, “The visit will at least push India down the trade hit list of the Trump administration as negotiations continue for the trade deal. You can’t expect a nuclear deal every time. largely stayed with the script this time.”
But, there was another deal that has happened. India will buy US military equipment & attack helicopters from the USA.
Besides, India will also import Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) from the US.
Mr. Rao said, “India needs energy security to feed its growth, and it had been looking to diversify its petroleum import portfolio anyway, so this one fits in.”
Without naming, Trump many times blamed China. He said, “During our visit, we discussed the importance of a secure 5G wireless network and the need for this emerging technology to be a tool for freedom, progress, prosperity, not to do anything with where it could be even conceived as a conduit for suppression and censorship.”
Deputy director at The Wilson Center, Michael Kugelman, didn’t surprise after hearing the statement of USA president. He said that “China looms large in this relationship. You can talk about shared values, the Modi-Trump friendship, but it’s the converging interests that bring the two countries together.
Trump mentioned this region as Indo-Pacific instead of Asia Pacific because he wanted to make China understood that the USA doesn’t count them. After noticing that, Mr. Kugelman added that, “The quad has ebbed and flowed. But over the last years, there have been efforts to bring it back in the limelight, and Mr. Trump’s mention of the project in India is a significant step to revive it.”
But, Donald Trump didn’t say anything about Indian current political situation. But, he said that the USA would work to eliminate the ongoing tension created for Kasmir
between India & Pakistan.
The bromance between Trump & Modi
“Bromance” between Mr. Trump and Mr. Modi was entirely shown. According to Mr. Rao, “Mr. Trump wanted a big crowd, and a larger-than-life spectacle and India gave him that.”
