New Delhi: On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump was asked questions about CAA, Kashmir, Delhi violence and so-called big trade deal with Indian government. Here is how Trump replied:
“I don’t want to discuss the CAA, I want to leave that to India and hopefully they will make the right decision for their people.”
“PM Modi gave me a powerful answer. He said there are 200 million Muslims where there not long ago there were 40 million. We discussed it; PM Modi said they work very closely with Muslims”.
“I didn’t say anything about that (being mediator on Kashmir). Kashmir obviously is a big problem between India and Pakistan, they are going to work out their problem. They have been doing it for a long time”.
On Delhi Violence:
“We did talk about religious freedom. The PM said he wants people to have religious freedom. They have worked really hard on it. I heard about the individual attacks but I did not discuss it. It is up to India.”
On Big Trade Deal:
We have been charged large amounts of tariff. That cannot happen.Harley Davidson paying huge tariff on bikes exported to India while Indian bike companies exporting bikes to the US at 0% tariff.. US has to be treated fairly. We are working on that.
