Following the telephonic call from the outgoing US President Barack Obama, today Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will get a call officially from the new US President Donald Trump at 11:30 PM in the night which is expected to go well beyond the midnight in India.
Mr Modi will be the fifth world leader to receive Trump’s call since his take over on January 20. Otherwise, Modi was quick to congratulate Trump after his election. About India, Trump has mixed feelings unlike Obama.
In a New Jersey address during the campaign, he tried to please majority Indian community there promising, “Under a Trump Administration, we are going to become even better friends, in fact I would take the term better out and we would be best friend… We are going to have a phenomenal future together.”
Otherwise, Indian community in the US was strongly behind Trump during his campaign and in return the top posts went to Nikki Haley among others. The conversation tonight will throw some light into the priority of the White House towards India in the next four years.
