Donald Trump is no stranger to ridicule, and TV host Jimmy Kimmel is no stranger to ridiculing him. In a new video, shared by Kimmel on his Facebook page, he takes fresh shots at the Republican presidential candidate for his recent attempt at attracting Indian-American voters.

The video, a response to Trump’s borrowing of Indian PM Modi’s ‘Ab ki baar Modi sarkaar’ slogan, found Kimmel taking to the streets, after mocking his stilted delivery of course, and asking people if they understand what Trump is saying.

To be fair, Trump’s butchering of the PM’s slogan isn’t as confusing as some of the people’s reactions would suggest, but after playing the clip of him saying ‘Ab(i) ki baar Trump sarkaar’ numerous times, it becomes clear that most people were not only unfamiliar with basic Hindi, but also of PM Modi’s original slogan.

But it’s all in good fun and presumably, only those who didn’t quite catch Trump’s words were chosen for the video.

“That’s not Hindi,” one man declared. “His accent was very funny,” said another, possibly chosen because of his own comically exaggerated delivery.

When one man was asked if listening to Trump speak in Hindi would tilt him in his favour, the man replied, “No, because I hate him.”

Another man displayed a quick sense of humour, offering his own translation of Trump’s words, “With my orange face, I will rule the world.”
