About 20 members of the right-wing Hindu Sena political group cut the three-tiered cake and held a piece up to a photo of Trump while singing “Happy birthday to you.”

They invited journalists to the gathering under a tent decorated with balloons and posters of Trump, including one showing him wearing a suit and holding a rifle.

Sena leader Vishnu Gupta said they were inspired by Trump’s hard talk against Islamic militants, and called him the future “king of the United States.”

This is the second event the group has staged for Trump in New Delhi. Last month, a dozen members lit a ritual fire and chanted mantras asking Hindu gods to help Trump win the US presidential election.
