PM Modi and newly elected President of USA Donald Trump spoke on the phone last night at about 11:30 PM. Modi became the 5th world leader Trump spoke to, after Canadian PM, Mexican Premier, Israeli PM and the Egyptian President. Many speculated as to what transpired between the two leaders, with chief issues speculated as being Pakistan, terrorism, H1B Visas among others.
PM Modi later updated about this telephonic conversation where the two leaders agreed upon to strengthen their bilateral ties. President Trump was also invited by the PM to visit India.
Though Trump hasn’t yet tweeted about it, the White House put out a press release regarding the phone call wherein Trump stressed that The US considers India a true friend and partner. Two leaders also had a discussion about strengthening their economic and defense partnerships and discussed the security situation in South and Central Asia. They also resolved to become allies in the global fight against terror and Trump extended an invitation to Modi to visit the US.

But such diplomatic talk is not for the Twitterati, who can see humour in everything. So as usual there were many reactions to this phone call between the two world leaders. Here are a few:

So is this the reason the ‘orange president’ called Modi up before most world leaders?
Donald Trump is called orange President, Nagpur is famous for oranges, Nagpur has RSS headquarters. Still wonder why Trump called Modi?

Everyone including the PM has this problem
Modi- *receives Trump’s call at midnight*
His mom-yeh ladka raat din phone pe hi laga rehta hai

So is this why they talked so late into the night?
Donald Trump couldn’t call Modi all day because Modi’s phone is always on Flight Mode.

Though the way Trump is taking on his media, maybe it should be the other way round
Trump is calling Modi to get tips on how to handle Barkha’s, Sagarika’s, Rana’s & Rajdeep’s of America.

Maybe Trump has grand expansion plans:
Trump comes to India. Calls NDTV fake news in official press conference. Republicans sweep 2019 elections. https://t.co/xU6dkP8sQV
