Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted today that he was “delighted” that US President Donald Trump would join him at the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event in Houston on September 22, and called it a “special gesture”. White House officials have been quoted as telling the Press Trust of India that when PM Modi requested a joint address in France last month on the sidelines of the G7 summit, the US president “immediately accepted” it.
The special gesture of President @realDonaldTrump to join us in Houston highlights the strength of the relationship and recognition of the contribution of the Indian community to American society and economy. #HowdyModi
