‘Looking forward’ to India visit, says US President Donald Trump | India News

NEW DELHI: US President Donald Trump on Saturday said he was “looking forward” to his India visit later this month.
“Great honor, I think? Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that “Donald J. Trump is Number 1 on Facebook. Number 2 is Prime Minister Modi of India.” Actually, I am going to India in two weeks. Looking forward to it!” the US President tweeted.

Trump, along with the First Lady, is scheduled to visit Ahmedabad and New Delhi on February 24 and 25, according to a White House announcement early this week.
Earlier, PM Modi had taken to Twitter and said, “Extremely delighted that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS will visit India on 24th and 25th February. India will accord a memorable welcome to our esteemed guests. This visit is a very special one and it will go a long way in further cementing India-USA friendship.”

Afterwards, US First Lady and Donald Trump’s wife Melania Trump took to Twitter to thank PM Modi for the “kind invitation” and said that she was looking forward to visiting Ahmedabad and New Dehli later this month.

This would be President Trump’s first bilateral visit in the third decade of 21st century and also the first after his acquittal by the Senate in the impeachment trial.
Trump is expected to get a roaring welcome by lakhs of people when he arrives in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
He along with PM Modi are expected to deliver a historic speech in front of hundreds and thousands of people at the newly build Motera stadium, the largest cricket stadium of the world.
