After Donald Trump exhibited his preposterous knowledge on the Kashmir issue by citing 'religion' to be the cause of conflict between India- Pakistan rather than a territorial issue, for "hundreds and hundreds" of years, netizens took on the US President for his foot in the mouth moment.
In a statement that lacked historical facts over Jammu and Kashmir, Donald Trump claimed that the Prime Ministers of both nations, Modi and Imran Khan.
Here is what netizens had to say over Donald Trump's statement:
He's a big buffoon, the biggest motormouth with no real knowledge of any global issue lol. It's a shame he's the leader of the only superpower in the world and can influence these things drastically. Someone should write the situation and explain him in bullet points.— Chitresh Bhatt (@BhattChitresh) August 21, 2019
@realDonaldTrump Sir please look for another matter like hongkong & China, mediate there, we don't need you here it's our business. We & @ImranKhanPTI— Manish Pathak (@ManishP16274238) August 21, 2019

Why does he want to mediate he should meditate than mediate he requires meditation to transform him— Vinay (@vinaygo03260194) August 21, 2019

Really? The guy who doesn't even realise that it's a no-brainer from the start and goes ahead and babbles on about buying Greenland -- from Denmark as if it was Denmark's to sell, is going to sort out Kashmir? Tragically funny.— Muhammad Abbass (@Rabbitnexus) August 21, 2019
“Kashmir is a very complicated place. You have the Hindus, and you have the Muslims, and I wouldn’t say they get along so great. And that’s what you have right now.”— 🇮🇳 Indian_नारी 🇮🇳 (@Madame_bhartiya) August 20, 2019
In other words, I HAVE NO CLUE.
In a statement that reeked of ignorance towards the historic issue of Jammu and Kashmir, Donald Trump claimed that heads of both the countries, PM Modi and Pak PM Imran Khan were caught in skirmish due to 'religion' in the Kashmir valley.
Donald Trump had said, "We have been having these talks for hundreds of years, even under a different name, but this is about Kashmir and Kashmir is a very complicated place. We have the Hindus and the Muslims, and I wouldn't say they get along so great and that's what you have right now. You have millions of people that want to be ruled by others, maybe on both sides and you have two countries that haven't gotten along for a long time and frankly its a very explosive situation. I spoke to Prime Minister Khan and I spoke with Prime Minister Modi. They are both friends of mine, they are great people. They both love their countries and they're in a very tough situation."
"Kashmir is a very tough situation. This has been going on for decades, shooting, I don't mean shooting, like with a rifle, I mean, the major shooting of like heavy arms. But as you know, I get along with both of them. Prime Minister Khan was here recently, and I'm going to be with Prime Minister Modi over the weekend in France. There are tremendous problems between both the countries and I would do the best I can, to meditate, or do something. I share a great relationship with both of them, but they are not exactly friends at this moment, its complicated situation. A lot too has to do with religion, religion is a complicated subject," Trump added.
On August 5, PM Modi led government abrogated the Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir that provided special status to the state, and bifurcated the state into two union territories of- Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
Soon after the diplomatic relations between the two nuclear nations further degraded as Pakistan expelled India's High Commissioner, both sides curbed the Samjhauta Express train, and Pakistan engaged in peddling fake news to irk the peace in Kashmir valley.
