Two days after being elected as the President of United States, there have been reports suggesting that Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi may go on to become “best of friends”. In an interview to news agency Reuters, Shalabh Kumar, an adviser to US President-elect, confidently said that the leaders of the two large democracies will become “best friends” while spearheading their nations towards strong bilateral relations.

“They will be best friends – not only the two nations will be best friends, but these two guys will be best friends. Donald Trump knows about Modi through me. He is very keen to learn about Modi. A meeting would come a little bit later – he has too much of an aggressive agenda, too many wrongs have been done to the nation that need to be sorted out,” said Kumar, the head of Republican Hindu Coalition, who has been instrumental in consolidating the Indian-American voter base for Trump.

Kumar was also recently quoted as saying that Trump was very fond of Modi and that the US President-elect was reading up on the Indian Prime Minister.

Addressing the issue of cross-border terrorism, the Chicago-based businessman added that Trump was the first president to acknowledge that “Pakistan is a perpetrator of terrorism.” Kumar also expects Trump’s supports towards the surgical strikes operation that took place on September 29. He also said, “The war against radical Islam is going to be properly prosecuted. He is going to find great partnership with India in that.”

Kumar and his family had earlier claimed donating $1.1 million to the Trump Campaign. “The Kumar family in total would contribute $2 million for the Trump Campaign and the Republican Party. It is in the best interest of the India-US relationship that I have decided to work for the victory of Trump in the November general elections,” he had said. Interestingly, Kumar had also taken a Congressional delegation to meet the then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

                Both of them are s of the highest degree. Both are a menace to this peaceful world. I hope Islamic countries take note of this and shame them at the global stage.

                              If Mr. Trump work like Mr. Modi does honestly and sincerely, then I think this pair will be able to remove lot of bad things, peoples and happening in the world.
