If we go back seven decades back Indo-US relations weren’t so great because of India’s NON-ALIGNMENT Policy followed by the then Third world Nations which also included India. But today the same Nation which distanced itself from the US has made some fabulous arrangements to treat the host MR. DONALD TRUMP, President of the United States of America.
Today Mr.Trump paid his first-ever visit to India with his family and delegation of the US. The Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi himself welcomed the president Trump by his Iconic Handshakes and Hugs. From Ahmedabad Airport the powerful global leaders reached Sabarmati Ashram with a huge crowd accompanied them. President and the First lady tried their hands on Charkha at Sabarmati Ashram. While leaving Mr.Trump had some good words in Visitors book thanking Prime Minister Modi.
