The Hindu Republican Coalition in New Jersey organised a fundraiser event on Saturday with Donald Trump as its chief guest. The event that included skits and dance performances by well known faces from the Indian entertainment industry also saw the Republican Presidential nominee deliver a speech on his love for ‘Hindu’ and India.

“I am a big fan of Hindu and I am a big fan of Hindu and I am a big fan of India,” said Donald Trump after he lighted the ceremonial diya.

He went on to announce that if he is elected the Indian and Hindu community would have a true friend in the White House.

Remarking upon the contribution made by the Indian community in the United States, Trump said that “generations of Indian and Hindu Americans have strengthened our country and strengthened it like few people could ever even believe.”

“Your values of hard work, education and enterprise have truly enriched our nation and we will be celebrating a Trump administration together. Indian Americans have the highest rate of entrepreneurship and college graduation in our country,” said Trump.

Applauding India’s contribution in the fight against terrorism, Donald Trump remarked that “we all know that we cannot have prosperity without security and that is why we appreciate the great friend India has been to the United States in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism.”

He went on to remark upon India’s experience of cross border terrorism and made his biggest faux pas when he conveyed his grief upon the attack on Parliament in Mumbai.

“India has seen first hand the brutality of terrorism and cross border violence, including the attacks in Mumbai,” said Trump. He further added that “for all of the people in Mumbai, the attack on Indian Parliament, absolutely outrageous and absolutely terrible. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism.”

He went on to explain his strategy to cut down taxes and increase jobs in America while cutting down immigration, particularly from China and Mexico.
