US President Donald Trump calls PM Modi ‘Father of India’, says Modi will “take care” of radical Islamic terrorism

Prime Minister Modi and US President Donald Trump were addressing the media at the UN headquarters ahead of a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of UN General Assembly.

United States President Donald Trump last night called Prime Minister Modi ‘Father of India’ and said that he will take care of radical Islamic terrorism.

On answering a media query on the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event which President Trump had attended in Houston, Texas on 22nd September where PM Modi addressed Indian diaspora, Trump said, “He is a great gentleman and a great leader. I remember India before was very torn. There was a lot of dissension, lot of fighting and he brought it all together. Like a father would. Maybe he is the ‘father of India’.” He further added that the Indian diaspora at the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event loved Prime Minister Modi. “People went crazy. It was like Elvis. He is like an American version of Elvis. They love your Prime Minister,” he said. Elvis Presley was an iconic American actor and singer and is often referred to as “The King of Rock and Roll”.

On Islamic terror

In another question, a journalist asked President Trump that during the Houston event, Trump had said that US stands with India in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism. With reference to that, how would he see Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement that Pakistan’s ISI had trained Al Qaeda terrorists.

To that, President Trump looked at PM Modi and said, “I have not heard that and your Prime Minister will take care of it.”

The heads of two nations were addressing the media at the UN headquarters ahead of a bilateral meeting on the sidelines of UN General Assembly. Trump also added that the US will have a trade deal with India real soon. “We will have a larger deal down the road a little but we will have a trade deal soon,” he said. In June this year, the US had ended the privileges India was enjoying under the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) which was implemented since 1974.
