US President Donald Trump on Tuesday called Prime Minister Narendra Modi the “Father of India”.
“I remember India before, it was very torn. There was a lot of fighting and he brought it all together like a father would bring it all together. Maybe he’s the father India; we’ll call him the father of India. He (Modi) is a great gentleman and a great leader,” Trump was quoted as saying by ANI following the bilateral meeting in New York.
The US President also likened PM Modi to Elvis Presley after attending the Howdy: Modi event in Houston.
It may be mentioned here that Trump suddenly dropped at UN Climate Action Summit on Monday to hear PM Modi’s speech. He had faced much criticism from environment activists after pulling US out of the Paris Agreement.
