HOUSTON (AP) – President Donald Trump joined a Texas welcome party for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who’s visiting the United States amid trade tensions between the allies.
Deafening drums marked the entrance of President Trump and Prime Minster Modi as they clasped hands and walked across the stage in a packed Texas stadium Sunday to send a message of unity between the world’s two largest democracies despite tensions over trade.
Modi called Trump “my friend” and Trump highlighted Indian-American contributions to the U.S.
After Houston, Trump stopped in Ohio where he joined Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison at an Australian-owned manufacturing plant.
