A video of American conservative political commentator and former television host Tomi Lahren is being widely shared on social media, after she thanked Indians for supporting Donald Trump and said the US president was an ‘ullu’.

In the video, Lahren thanked the Indian community in the US for supporting president Donald Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ and his ‘Keep America Great’ agenda for the 2020 polls.

“Because President Trump is wise like an owl, or as you guys would say in Hindi – I hope I’m pronouncing this right – President Trump is wise like an ‘ullu’. I hope I said that right,” she said.

Unfortunately for Lahren, the term ‘ullu’ does refer to an owl, but isn’t used to denote wisdom and is usually used to indicate the opposite.

Lahren’s approach to reach out to the Indian diaspora backfired on social media with many laughing about her use of the term.

Take a look at some of the reactions here:

Meanwhile, the Republican National Convention started on Monday with the renomination of Trump as the party’s presidential candidate for the upcoming elections.
