US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania reached India along with a 12-member delegation. The Namaste Trump event began in Motera cricket stadium. We list out the major takeaways of the speech delivered by Donald Trump
Key highlights of speech:
US President Donald Trump: America loves India, America respects India and America will always be a faithful and loyal friend to the Indian people.
We will always remember this remarkable hospitality. India will hold a special place in our hearts. PM Modi started out as 'tea wallah', he worked as a tea seller. Everybody loves him but I will tell you this, he is very tough.
I'm pleased to announce that tomorrow our representatives will sign deals to sell over US $3 Billion, in the absolute finest state of the art military helicopters and other equipment to the Indian armed forces.
Both countries are united in defending citizens from threat of radical Islamic terrorism. Under my administration we unleashed full power of American military on bloodthirsty killers of ISIS. Today ISIS territorial caliphate is 100% destroyed. Monster Al Baghdadi is dead
As we continue to build our defence cooperation, the US looks forward to providing India with some of the best and most feared military equipment on the planet. We make the greatest weapons ever made. We make the best and we are dealing now with India.
5 months ago, the United States welcomed your great Prime Minister at a giant football stadium in Texas and today India welcomes us at the world's largest cricket stadium right here in Ahmedabad.
PM Modi you are not just the pride of Gujarat, you are living proof that with hard work & devotion, Indians can accomplish anything at all, anything they want. The Prime Minister is a moving story of an incredible rise.
All over the planet people take great joy in watching Bollywood films, bhangra, and classic films like DDLJ and Sholay. You cheer on great cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli.
