Washington: The U.S. President Donald Trump, on Thursday, said that he wants to do everything possible to keep peace for the people of India and China. The Trump administration has moved forward in support of India against China.
“Trump said I love the people of India and I love the people of China and I want to do everything possible to keep the peace for the people,” said White House Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, on Thursday, as a response to a question on Trump’s message to India, which recently had a clash with China in eastern Ladakh along the Line of Actual Control.
Earlier in the day, White House Economic Advisor, Larry Kudlow remarked India as a great ally, stating President Trump is a great friend of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“India has been a great partner. They are an important partner of ours. I have a great relationship with my foreign minister counterpart. We talked frequently about a broad range of issues. We talked about the conflict they had along the border with China. We’ve talked about the risk that emanates from the Chinese telecommunication infrastructure there,” Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo told in response to a question.
Mason said in a statement, “Only President Trump has had the courage to say that I love India, America respects India US stands with India – and that also, to over one billion Indians in India at the Namaste Trump rally held in India and that too near India’s neighbour China,” adding, “He is consistent in his love for India and Indian-Americans.”
