Trump will be in country for 36 hours. The President and First Lady visited Gandhi's former residence as well as the Taj Mahal on day one.
More than 110,000 people packed into the world’s largest cricket stadium in India on Monday to cheer President Trump, who promised “an incredible trade deal” and “the most feared military equipment on the planet” at his biggest rally abroad.
Nearly everyone in the massive stadium held cardboard Trump masks and wore white hats with the name of the event, “Namaste, Trump” or “Welcome, Trump.” The stadium erupted in roars at the introductions of Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Trump wowed the crowd with a 30-minute speech, pledging to make the two nations even stronger allies.
“As we continue to build our defense cooperation, the United States looks forward to providing India with some of the best and most feared military equipment on the planet,” Trump said. “You have done a great honor to our country. We will remember you forever, from this day onwards India will always hold a special place in our hearts,” the president said to thunderous applause.
Trump said in a new deal set to be signed on Tuesday, the U.S. will sell to India military helicopters worth $3 billion, adding that America must become the top defense partner of India, which relied on Russian equipment during the Cold War. The president also said he had traveled 8,000 miles to deliver the message that “America loves India, America respects India and America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the Indian people.”
