The United States President Donald Trump while addressing the crowd at the NRG stadium at the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event on Sunday said, “Hello Houston, I am so thrilled to be here in the great state of Texas with one of America’s greatest, most devoted and most loyal friends, Prime Minister Modi of India, thank you!” to which the US President was met with thunderous applause.
President Trump added, “On this day, I am happy to report on the relationship between the United States and India is stronger than ever before. The ties between the two nations are grounded in our common values and our shared commitment to democracy, we are free nations with great faith and a fierce devotion to our national independence. We are governed by the rule of law guided by a commitment to justice and strengthened by the love of liberty.”
The US President further went on to talk about the respective constitutions, “Our two national Constitutions begin with the same three beautiful words, "We The People". That means that in India and America alike we honour, respect, trust and empower, and fight for the citizens we proudly serve.”
Trump went on to praise PM Modi and said, “Under Prime Minister Modi’s leadership, the world is witnessing a strong sovereign and the thriving Republic of India, in a single decade of Prime Minister Modi’s pro-growth reforms India has lifted nearly 300 million people out of poverty and that is an incredible number,” he added, “in the next decade, 140 million Indian households will rise to the middle-class. In both India and the United States, we are seeing something rather remarkable and our people are prospering like never before because we are slashing bureaucracy and cutting job-killing red tape.”
