US President is all set for his maiden India visit along with First Lady Melania Trump on February 24-25. The formal announcement to this effect was made by The White House on Tuesday.
“President @realDonaldTrump & @FLOTUS will travel to India from February 24-25 to visit Prime Minister @narendramodi! The trip will further strengthen the US-India strategic partnership & highlight the strong & enduring bonds between the American & Indian people,” White House said in a tweet.
In addition to national capital Delhi, President Trump will also be visiting Ahmedabad where a massive “Kemcho Trump”! (Howdy Trump) rally has been planned to welcome the US President. It’s also a kind of return gesture for “Howdy Modi” event in Texas that was organised to welcome the Indian Prime Minister when he visited the US last September.
President Trump and PM Modi are also expected to inaugurate the Motara Stadium in Ahmedabad, one of the largest sports arenas with a sitting capacity of 110,000. The two leaders are also likely to take a walkthrough at the Sabarmati wavefront.
However, there is no official word on President Trump’s visit to Agra as it was being speculated in the media.
