The trumps’ first stop over in Ahmedabad was at Sabarmati Ashram where they visited Hriday Kunj-Mahatma Gandhi’s dwelling unit from 1918-30. For him sitting on the floor and running the Charkha (spinning wheel) was not an easy job.
In the visitor’ book Trump wrote “to my great friend Prime Minister Modi, thank you for this wonderful visit-Donald Trump/Melania Trump.” Ironically Trump’s message had neither one word of tribute to Mahatma Gandhi nor even a mention of the Father of the Nation.
Latter on Trump and Modi took up photo shoot by sitting in the courtyard of Gandhi’s house.
On his way to Ahmedabad’s Motera stadium Trumps were greeted by roughly millions of people. US President Donald Trump on Monday addressed the ‘Namaste Trump’ at Ahmedabad’s Motera stadium during the first leg of his India visit. The president spoke about several issues related to India including its economic growth, Bollywood, cricket, terrorism faced by India and the India-US relations.
President Trump was accompanied by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and First Lady Melania Trump at the event.
Here are some excerpts of President Trump’s speech:
