Trump to welcome India's prime minister to White House

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and U.S. President Donald Trump will have a one-on-one meeting in the Oval Office of the White House for 20-minutes between 3.50 p.m. and 4.10 p.m. (EST) (that is tentatively between 1.20 a.m. and 1.40 a.m.IST on Tuesday June 27).

Trump, six months into his presidency, is no longer entirely new to foreign visits, but administration officials said the President intends to "roll out the red carpet" for Modi on Monday.

The prime minister said that there has not been a single allegation of corruption against his government in the last three years.

"This meeting is, above all, an introduction, an opportunity for the two men to meet each other, to size each other up, and to get a sense of how each one views the other and the bilateral relationship on the whole", said Michael Kugelman, deputy director of the Asia Program at The Wilson Center.

"Preparing the ground for the meeting between the leaders. Mr".

Trump built a Trump Tower property in Mumbai and spoke warmly of India during his presidential campaign past year.

In another tweet , Trump also congratulated Republican Ralph Norman, who won a special congressional election in SC . During a Wednesday night re-election rally in #iowa, Trump was quick to double down on the issue at hand.


"I think we've now come to a fork in the road, and it's not clear which way we are going to go", he says. "That is our heritage and we have to strengthen that heritage", Modi said. The two are meeting for the first time at the White House Monday afternoon, Modi having arrived for a brief, two-day call - not a state visit, but a working one. "The only way is up".

Bezos was among the 20 United States business leaders who interacted with Modi as part of a roundtable interaction. "If they click, we go up higher".

For two decades, US and Indian leaders from across the political spectrum have embraced a shared vision: that the world would be a safer and more prosperous place if the world's two largest democracies were the closest of friends, and that the rise of India was in America's strategic interest.

He has called for reform of the H-1B visa system, which has benefited Indian tech firms. When President Trump pulled out of the Paris climate agreement, he said India had predicated its participation on receiving "billions and billions and billions of dollars of foreign aid", a remark that incensed New Delhi, where leaders said it was patently untrue.

Prime Minister Modi met with the top officials of Google, Amazon and Apple and told them how India has emerged as a business-friendly destination, particularly with the upcoming implementation of GST, which he termed a game changer. The significant advances in the complexity of US and Indian military exercises, intelligence sharing, defense sales, and co-production opportunities, as well as counterterrorism cooperation, point to a deepening of the strategic partnership.

Any tightening in relations between India could jeopardize the US-Pakistan relationship. -Indian relations since Trump took office on January 20 add gravity to the meeting.
