Excerpt from US President Trump’s speech


‘Friendship is where trust is unshakable’

PM Modi addresses the Namaste Trump community programme in Ahmedabad

  • Five months ago, I had started my American trip from #HowdyModi. Today, my friend POTUS Trump is starting his trip from #NamasteTrump in Ahmedabad.
  • The world’s biggest democracy welcomes you, Mr. Trump. We may be in Gujarat, but entire India is excited to invite you. The arrival of POTUS, FLOTUS, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner gives the Indo-US ties a familial touch and adds warmth to it.
  • You’re on the banks of Sabarmati River, which played a crucial part in India’s struggle for Independence. You’re in India that is diverse. It uses several languages, has different cuisines, different traditions, and several communities.
  • While US is the land of free, India treats the whole world as one. While US values its statue of liberty, India prides her for the tallest statue of unity in the world! Unity and vibrancy in diversity form the base for a strong US-India relationship.
  • The core principle of a relationship between two people or countries is trust. ‘Friendship is where trust is unshakable.’ In the last few years, the new highs the trust between India and US has reached is historic!
  • I’ve witnessed the rise in this trust in my visits to the US. I vividly remember when I met POTUS Trump for the first time in Washington, he had said that: “India has a true friend in the White House.” He has always presented his love and affection for India.
  • India and the US together are capable of leading the digital age in the 21st century. New alignment, new competition, new challenges and new opportunities are building the foundation for change in the 21st century.
