Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump told a rally of Hindu-Americans on Saturday that there would be a “phenomenal future” for India and United States of America under his administration while raging against the dangers from “radical Islamic terrorism” facing them.


He also praised India’s nationalist prime minister, Narendra Modi, at an Indian-American charity organized by Hindu Republican Coalition.



In an exclusive interview given to NDTV, he said, “I have great respect for Hindus. I have so many friends that are Hindu. They are great people, amazing entrepreneurs,”


“I’ll be honest, I have great respect for India. I actually have (real estate) jobs going up in India. (It’s) tremendously successful. It is an amazing country.”, he continued.


The Event’s them was the fight against terrorism – one of the major subjects chosen by Donald Trump for his election campaign this year.



He during his speech made a successful attempt at praising India’s gen-x. “If I am elected President, the Indian and Hindu community will have a true friend in White House,” Trump told the gathering, many of whom had soaked up two hours of tacky Bollywood entertainment before his arrival. After lighting a lamp on the stage at the cavernous Raritan Center, Trump said he became familiar with India and Indians because he had two “massive” projects in India, both “very successful with very wonderful partners,” and in which he became involved because he had “great confidence in India.”

“Incredible people and incredible country,” Trump enthused, counting down superlatives as he praised the Indian and Hindu spirit of hard work, education, and enterprise while relating how he went to India 19 months ago and looked forward to going back “many, many times.



When asked about India and Pakistan, he said “There’s a tremendous conflict between India and Pakistan. Just recently you had (the Uri attack), a lot of people killed. Hopefully, everything is going to work out,” he said.




Looking at the Past, Trump’s star aren’t going much in his favor as myriad controversy are piling up one after another, the event organizers also debarred everyone from asking questions related to sex tape controversy.
