* I have great respect for Hindus. I have so many friends that are Hindu and they are amazing entrepreneurs. I have jobs going up in India right now. I have great respect for India. It’s an amazing country.

* (The India Pakistan conflict) is one of the great conflicts in the world right now. Hopefully everything will work out but there is tremendous conflict between India and Pakistan. There has been for quite some time. Just recently you had a lot of people killed.

At the event, Trump spoke about Narendra Modi, his likeness of Mumbai and the relations between India and US under the Trump administration.

* I look forward to working with Prime Minister Narendra Modi who has been very energetic in reforming India’s bureaucracy. Great man. I applaud him for doing so.

* I am a big fan of Hindu. I am a big fan of India.

* If I’m elected President, the Indian and Hindu community will have a true friend in the White House. That I can guarantee you.

* I’m involved in two massive developments in India…and that is because I have great confidence in India. Generations of Indian and Hindu Americans have strengthened our country…your values of hard work, education and enterprise have truly enriched our nation.

    He is praising hindu religion and india's talent not abusing christian religion so in this way this is not a sin . Is there mentioned anywhere in bible that praising any religion or a people is a sin ? why u americans are feeling jealous to us. N plz stop criticising Mr. Donald .

      The people from India need not call themselves as "Hindus" but Indians which includes all communities. The Hindu group organiser have had a hope that he or his daughter might get a job. Probability of his daughter getting an intern job in White House is brighter. May God help them.

            Brshmins are amazing. It's a hearsay that they have been the most virulently advanced cl of people and very brave. They are so brave that they won't mind risking the chasy( if ithet existed) of their women folks after the SHRI TRUMPJI's win.

              Modi has asked Aishwarya Rai to be ready any time. Remember why Modi asked her to meet Holande. She was the real Rafael deal breaker. Poor Abishake Bachchan.

                Trump does not want to send the American military to Iraq or anywhere in the middle east to fight terrorism . He just want to prevent terrorist entering he's country.

                            Brahmin American Foundation(cowardly calling itself Hindu American Foundation) is the major contributor to TRUMPJI. Brahmins are a well known destabilizes all over the world. They are always restless and will sell their women folks even to achieve a dominating status. All for that "NON-EXISTENT BRAHMIN ANIMALlt;br/gt;EGO".

                                        Really, do you guys really believe that Trump is not Racist. Not condemning David Duke, Judge born in Indiana, he is Mexican, Mexican are rapists. So Indian kids who are born in America won''t be Americans. Is this what kind of future your Indian Americans kids to have. Not respecting Women, where in India worship Indian women As GOD. Wow I am amazed. lt;br/gt;Make America Great Again is a great slogan. But Trump we all know what you mean by that. Your polarity for politics all started with First Black President and your dislike for him and your Birther movement. Even after the birth certificate you still did not believe him. You did not approve that just like lot of your supporter did not approve Mr. Obama because he is not White. They and you did not like to have a Black President Period !!! Just like it took you some years to say our First Black President was born in US. So for Minorities like me, we are really scared what will HAPPEN when you say we need to take our country back again or make America great again. Do you want to take it back before the Civil Rights act was signed. Before 1968. We need to make America Great again. But not the way you want to divide Black, brown,red, orange and white people in this country. So guys if you are not Racist it''s should be really clear who to vote for. Not For TRUMP PERIOD!!!
