Hours before President Donald Trump's maiden visit to India, Congress leader Manish Tewari on Monday took a jibe at the US President and said that in three years of Trump's Presidential tenure he has insulted America’s closest allies and also unleased suppressed bigoted & racist tendencies in the US.
Calling Trump's visit as a 36-hour long 'Tamasha', Tewari on his micro-blogging website said that the "US has degraded India to a lowly buyer state from a strategic partner".

1/3 Pak Special Relationship is back on track. Qua China except for an airy fairy Blue Dot network there is nothing to counter BRI in substantive terms. US - Iran Tensions hurt Indian Oil Refineries the most. Quad is a complete non- starter. India falls in between the cracks of..— Manish Tewari (@ManishTewari) February 24, 2020
1/4 Cent-Com qua Paf-Com.Visit is a fluff. A Specticalization of Diplomacy designed to detract from the fact that the NDA/BJP Govt has failed to secure India’s interest and the last big Idea in the relationship was in 2005 - India - US Nuclear Deal that smashed Nuclear apartheid— Manish Tewari (@ManishTewari) February 24, 2020
