Majority of Indian-Americans prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump as their choice for the next US President when it comes to issues of immigration, religious freedom and outsourcing, a Silicon Valley-based think tank has said. However, the New York-based billionaire has an edge over Clinton when it comes to India-specific foreign policy of the United States and the fight against terrorism, the Indian-American think-tank said Tuesday quoting its recent survey.

      Donald Trump is the narendra modi of USA. And Modiji is similar to Trump in many respects . They have the same level of vision , foresight and intelligence. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;All Hindu Americans must vote for him , otherwise they should be considered as traitors to India.

            It may sound wierd to suggest that Trump would but be the right person for India. This is a parochial perspective though!lt;br/gt;Trump would take a hardline against stan. Clinton would flip flop and be wayward much like;br/gt;She'll be a weak-kneed and a lame duck President.
