MY TIMES TODAY. US President Donald Trump overnight Wednesday described ties with India as “close” and said he was “grateful” for his friendship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
At an event to mark Diwali organised at the White House, Trump also said the two sides were working towards a trade deal as he described the Indian side as “very good negotiators.”
It was my great honor to host a celebration of Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, in the Roosevelt Room at the @WhiteHouse this afternoon. Very, very special people! https://t.co/kQk7IvpSFo pic.twitter.com/tYlBABg4JF
