Nitin Kumar, the designated guide said, “I told them the story of the Taj Mahal, the construction, and the story behind it. President Trump got very emotional after knowing the story of Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal. How he was kept under house arrest by his own son Aurangzeb, and buried here at Taj, next to Mumtaz's grave, after his death”. 

Agar welcomes Trump

Donald Trump’s convoy's route from the airport to the Taj Mahal was about 13 km and it was dotted by thousands of artists who welcomed them with special performances. Over 3,000 artists performed at 16 different points and 21 stages were built to showcase the culture of the state.

Massive billboards greeting the US President and reflecting the bonhomie between him and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were put up in Agra along the road. Cutouts of Trump and PM Modi were also placed under pillars and lamp posts leading to the east gate of Taj Mahal from where Donald Trump and Melania Trump entered.
