US presidential candidate Donald Trump said that he is “a big fan of India” and praised India Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that that if he was elected, India and the US would become best friends.

Speaking at the Indian-American charity event that was held on Oct 15, Trump said “Under a Trump Administration, we are going to become even better friends. In fact I would take the term better out and we would be best friends.”

Trump was all praises for Narendra Modi, calling him a very energetic man and a great leader. He went on to say that Modi’s view of government was in line with his own. “I look forward to doing some serious bureaucratic trimming right here in the United States,” Mr. Trump said.

This is the first time that a presidential candidate has attended an Indian American event this election season.

“Generations of Indians and Hindu-Americans have strengthened our country…their values of hard work, education and enterprise have truly enriched our nation and we will be celebrating a Trump administration together,” Trump said.

Trump appreciated India’s efforts to curb terrorism.

“We appreciate the great friend India has been to the US in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism,”

“We will stand shoulder to shoulder with India in sharing intelligence and keeping our people safe mutually,” Mr. Trump said.

Trump then went on to blame Hillary Clinton, for the rise of terrorism, saying  “This is so important in the age of ISIS, the barbaric threat Hillary Clinton has unleashed on the entire world.”
