    I don’t know the details but my experience working around Indians and now an increasing number of Chinese, they don’t like each other.

    That’s what I see and what I hear from others

    If that is the case, by taking on the Chinese, Trump just score a huge victory with the Indians.

      You need to look at all the articles Sundance has posted on the “Indo-Pacific” trade strategy. He’s leveraging a strong relationship with India to pressure China on trade.

      Politically, “Indians” means Hindus. The “Indians” at the event are probably all Hindus.
      There are .7M Hindus in the U.S., and 1.3M Muslims
      Hindus make minimal demands for accommodation as an immigrant group. Muslims, on the other hand . . . . ?
      I suspect that VSGDJT will utilize the “Indian” bloc adroitly vis-a-vis the Muslim bloc in domestic politics and in the election.
      Why the Hindu bloc in the U.K. gets almost no publicity and demonstrates so little political clout, compared to the Muslims, is a mystery to me.

        Even so, it is disconcerting that PM Modi is so openly Hindu centrist. He has let down many religious minorities in India and I’d hope that President Trump has his ear on this issue.

        “Hindus, particularly the Nair and Kodava communities were persecuted by Tipu Sultan and they were subjected to forcible conversions to Islam, death, and torture. The Nairs were treated with extreme brutality for their Hindu faith and martial tradition. It is estimated that out of the 30,000 Nairs put to captivity including women and children, most perished.”

        ” Trump won Texas with 52.2 per cent of the vote in 2016, losing out in the bigger cities and along the border. Asian Americans, with Indian Americans as a subset of that group, is the largest growing voter groups in the U.S., nearly doubling in the last decade – and Trump is looking to improve his standing with them next year.

        A study shows that people of Indian origin in the U.S. are among the strongest supporters of the Democratic Party. ”

        Can Sundance explain why would any Core American be orgasmic about iconography on this apparently Texas Pulpit?

        ” When asked, ahead of the 2016 election, who they planned to vote for, 60 per cent of Indian-Americans said they viewed the GOP unfavorably.”

        Same’s gonna happen in 2020.
        Trump won 2016 because of Sailer Strategy/ Cold Anger.

        Pandering to Hyphenated, Dual Flag Waiving, Americans won’t do any good to this country.

        Balkanization is not the future.

                I actually own Indian pop music CD’s, and other middle-Eastern music. As with other music genres, I’m particular about it. None of it sounds right, when I’m expecting serious talk.

                  While shared, I think this may qualify as Trump’s biggest political rally ever. And the Modi endorsement assures that Trump has ripped a chunk of “people of color” that the democrats purport to represent.

                  Being that Indians represent a higher than average income, It bodes well for the Republican party coffers. A win for Trump is a win for India. A win for India is a win for Trump. You cannot beat that.

                  A spectacular day of winning.

          • Wow, compare the enthusiasm here at this event to the pathetic “steak fry” the poor Democrats tried to pull off yesterday in Iowa.

            Yesterday the Australian PM was praising our POTUS to the high heavens and now we have the PM of India who seems to enjoy the same opinion.

            The Democrats are in big trouble.

    As a rule in football, the player gets the ball runs and then falls down.
    What is most important about this is where the player falls down.

    VSGPDJT has the football (all of them), he hasn’t fumbled, he hasn’t fallen down.
    He’s still running as hard as he can with the American football, no goal post in sight.

    Run PTrump Run !

    Great introduction of PDJT, very complimentary and heartfelt. I would recommend increasing the playback speed as PM Modi’s word pace is very slow (for the venue, for effect, maybe his normal style of delivery) Playback speed setting is under the settings button in Youtube.

    Not sure what to make of this friendship. Modi does seem to like PT a lot but is it because of the need to keep Indians coming to America to be educated, work and reap American financial rewards or is it a real friendship between men of two powerful nations? If these Indians, those who are naturalized citizens, vote Dem more than not, what is this really a signal of? If these people are naturalized or second generation American citizens, why not wave American flags? Glad they like both men, but is it true support for America and PT?

      This isn’t about immigrants from India.
      This is about a strategic pivot from pandering to Pakistan whose Taliban surrogates in Afghanistan hosted the perpetrators of the 9-11 attacks.
      This is about forging a new economic and perhaps military alliance with the country that is becoming the most populous nwtion on Earth, is the most populous English speaking country on Earth, and the most populous democracy on Earth.

      That flushing sound you hear are all the tens of millions of jobs draining out of China to the US, to Mexico, to Japan, to Taiwan, to South Korea, to North Korea, and may be India.

    So, Indians mostly vote democrat.

    The Trumpet might have just given the Five-Finger Death Punch to the democrats. If there are close to 3 million Indians in the USA, and he converts 1/3, he had essentially sealed up 2020.

    When a thinking Republican does an analysis, the Tech giants aka “Masters of the Universe” are run by the Indian CEOs & algorithms/ code writers are mostly of Indian origin! How many ppl here have seen the Google top management video of their bamboozled behavioral response to their Indian code writers employees that how the heck Trump won over Hill?
    I would rather Trump have a test run in deep blue Sanctuary state of California than red state of Texas to make sure this show was show for Modi & not for Trump.
    Indians’ DNA being socialists for long time needs a closer scrutiny bc of their numbers!
    Look in MSM how many Indian attorneys Obama mouth pieces are spewing stuff on regular basis on Fake News!
    Indians are one of slickest learners of colonial politics!
    How much contributions were made for Republicans & Trump will be a proof of proverbial pudding!

    Why are Republicans trying to give away American jobs to imported Indian Nationals via Visas?

    We pay our taxes that pay the salaries of DC., while they replace our children with immigrants on Visas.

    We raise our children and send them to college for STEM degrees, not Gender Studies or Art History.

    Yet we support watching the good jobs in engineering and other technical areas go to Indians? Who vote Democrat?

    Why are we celebrating India? Because they are our alternative to China?

    Excuse me if I don’t find this anything to celebrate.

      Most Indians are relatively new immigrants into USA. Almost every Indian is a legal immigrant. Do not direct your criticism towards the Indian Americans, it is the politicians and the corporates that are responsible for what is happening. If not Indians, it would be people from some other country.

      Large number of Indians are without green cards. 60% of my friends do not have green cards. We still love our birth nation, does not mean we do not love the nation that adopted us. We are law abiding and hard-working people that are contributing to the prosperity of USA. Probably the lowest percentage of people on government handouts.

      Similar to USA, Indian education and media is controlled by left leaning corporates. They romanticize communism. We have been fed the message that Republican are racists, do not like/or welcome non-whites. This was the message we saw in Indian media and see the same in US MSM.

      Republicans need to open up to the changing demography and understand that if the party needs to have a future it better take active measures to educate immigrants about the history of slavery, white supremacy and the party that was responsible for it and the party that fought against it.

      PDJT is doing it in his own small way. It is the responsibility of every Republican and every responsible citizen to educate immigrants to learn the real history of America, not what is taught in schools. It needs grass root work to change this. Every county should have a republican out reach team that works with new immigrants to educate them on the history of America and how to find their way around in their new surroundings. It is important to remind the reason so many people want to come to US is not because of socialism or communism but because of capitalism, because it is the nation of opportunity.

      I think Republican party should be party of pro growth, pro workers, pro life, pro 2nd amendment, pro legal immigrants, pro middle class, pro America and pro capitalism. Trump is already doing this. I salute him and I hope we have more leaders that follow in his path.

      BTW, I am relatively new citizen of USA, who has been following Trump from the day he came down the escalator to announce his intent to run for US presidency and I have supported him from day one. I could not vote in the last elections, but eligible to vote this time around.

      I have been on CTH for more than 2 years. Love you Sundance and credit you and the great comments here for most of what I have learnt and thank every one for the same.

        A lot of this responsibility falls upon people like you. New arrivals will believe you as a naturalized citizen and not born and bred Americans nearly as much. I too am an immigrant so I know. It is human nature. Go proselytize to the newly arrived. Educate them to the BS the Dems will feed them and help them see the light before they fall for the Dem dog and pony show.

        I agree that the Republican party has done a crappy job with outreach, but it isn’t the Republican party any-more. It is Trump’s party now.

        I am a generational American who had ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War and every war since.

        Pardon me if I do not support your wish for the Republican party to be “Pro-Immigrant.” Nearly 1/4 of adults in the USA are foreign born. That is too many, too much, and destroying the fabric of MY generational home country.

        How would you feel is someone just floated over to your country and started lecturing you about your nation’s immigration policy? Just ask yourself how that would make you feel? Happy? Grateful? Enraged? Bitterly angry? Yeah, try the last two.
