‘Your presence at HowdyModi a watershed moment in ties’: PM Modi tweets thank you to US President Donald Trump
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the bonhomie with Donald Trump further after the Howdy, Modi!’ event with another tweet, underscoring the US president’s ‘respect towards India and the Indian diaspora’.
Donald Trump had joined the Prime Minister at the mega event in Houston, Texas as a “special gesture” by him to underscore the bond between the United States and India.
The Prime Minister had welcomed Trump, and the two leaders had embraced each other before walking together towards the stage for Sunday’s event. It was the first time that Trump and Modi shared a stage together.
On Monday, Modi underscored the ties with a tweet along with four photographs with the US president.
“Dear @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, your presence at #HowdyModi in Houston was a watershed moment in India-USA ties,” the Prime Minister posted.
“Since assuming office, you have been a steadfast friend of India and the Indian community. Your presence indicates your respect towards India and the Indian diaspora,” he tweeted.
Modi even cheered for Donald Trump’s re-election at the mega Houston address as the US president stood by his side. The Prime Minister used the ‘Abki baar, Modi sarkar’ campaign punchline for his ‘friend’ Trump to ‘abki baar, Trump sarkar’.
