    Trump to Modi: How often do you do such big meetings?

    Synopsis

    “Trump was surprised by this and then asked the PM if he did such regular public meetings while he was in the US too, to which PM Modi said — not regularly — but pointed to his earlier events with the diaspora in Madison Square and San Jose,” an official said.

    On September 24, Trump asked his staff to ensure that a framed photograph presented to him by Prime Minister Modi from the Houston event is “put up in the Oval Office” of the White House.
    New Delhi: US President Donald Trump after seeing the big crowd at the ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event in Houston is believed to have asked Modi how frequently he did such large public meetings, officials aware of their deliberations told ET. Modi, in response, told Trump that on average, one such large public meeting was done by him almost every week and the same was normal in India.

    “Trump was surprised by this and then asked the PM if he did such regular public meetings while he was in the US too, to which PM Modi said — not regularly — but pointed to his earlier events with the diaspora in Madison Square and San Jose,” an official said.

    Over 50,000 people had attended the Houston event.

    Such a crowd strength is unheard of even during US presidential campaigns.

    On September 24, Trump asked his staff to ensure that a framed photograph presented to him by Prime Minister Modi from the Houston event is “put up in the Oval Office” of the White House. Trump also thanked PM Modi for the photo.
