    • Narendra Modi led his party to a super-sized victory for a second term as Prime Minister.

      The 417-page book, 'A Very Stable Genius', written by Philip Rucker and Carol D Leonnig, detailed similar vivid incidents from Trump's tumultuous first three years as President, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. The businessman-turned-politician won the US presidential election in 2016 and assumed the position on January 20, 2017.

      US President Donald Trump has elevated America's ties with India and solidified the growing partnership between the two countries in ways not seen in any previous administrations, the White House has said.

      Goyal said that the UPA government was willing to make India a part of RCEP ‘without going into details of how it would impact’ India’s interest. This was checked when Nirmala Sitharaman, as commerce minister in the last government, wrote in an official file India’s interests would be impacted by China and other RCEP members.

      Sitharaman said the latest measures will promote growth and investment, but sidestepped questions on its impact on fiscal deficit.

      Trump is set to land in Ahmedabad around noon. A road show and a huge reception is planned in a 110,000-seat cricket stadium, said to be the world's largest. Many roads were blocked off in Ahmedabad, shops shut and police stationed on rooftops and balconies. School children boarded buses bound for the stadium shouting "We love Trump." Others were carrying Indian flags.

      Trump, who has pursued reworked bilateral trade deals as the centrepiece of his foreign policy, did not hide his disappointment ahead of the trip, but has remained enthusiastic on the overall prospects. His endorsement of a meme ‘USA and India united’, which portrayed him as Baahubali from the mega blockbuster, carried the message from the US President: “Look so forward to being with my great friends in India.”

      Looking forward to be with the people of India, US President Donald Trump on Sunday left for a historic visit to the country, which officials said will "demonstrate strong and enduring ties" between the two largest democracies of the world and significantly ramp up the defence and strategic ties.

      The Congress leader Anand Sharma said that the PM and the government must keep in mind “India’s sovereignty, self-respect and national interest” while conducting Trump’s visit. Sharma also pointed at the contrast between the simplicity and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and the government’s ‘extravaganza’ for Trump’s visit.

      Even since Trump's visit to the city was announced around two weeks back, local police as well as authorities had been claiming the mega gathering of over 1 lakh people in the stadium would also mark the inauguration of the stadium.

      The bonhomie between Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump is being celebrated in large hoardings that have come up along the roadside in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar.

      A trade agreement between India and the US would always be difficult – “fair and reciprocal” mean very different things in Washington and New Delhi. It’s the one area in the bilateral relationship which stays out of the “strategic” umbrella, leaving both sides to squabble like Tom and Jerry.
