U.S. President Donald Trump is planning his first visit to India next month, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday (Jan 14), citing a senior Indian government official.
The United States and India are in touch to work out mutually convenient dates for the visit, according to Bloomberg. Late last year, Trump joined Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a massive gathering of Indian-Americans in Houston, in a symbolic show of the bond between the two leaders and countries.
The visit will come as India faces the slowest economic growth since 2009 and rising social unrest against Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government, which has been pushing its Hindu nationalist agenda through new laws that are widely seen as discriminating toward Muslims.
