President Trump has said that his Indian counterpart has promised him that 5-7 million people will gather to welcome and cheer them on at the airport, also will take part in the Gujarat event.
Trump is likely to visit India on February 24 and 25, announced White House last day. Donald Trump, on Tuesday, said that he is waiting eagerly to visit India and has spoke to PM Modi over the weekend about his visit.
While informing media about his visit, Trump said, "I am (going to India). He (PM Modi) said we will have millions and millions of people. He thinks we will have 5-7 million people just from the airport to the new stadium."
Trump also mocked on "Howdy, Modi" event which had held in Houston last year or his own events in the US and said it does not feel good when 50,000 people attend such gatherings.
"When we have 50,000 people, I'm not going to feel so good we'll have to five to seven million people just from the airport to the new stadium. And you know it is the largest stadium in the world. (They are) building it now. It's almost complete and it's the largest in the world," said Trump.
He further added, "I look forward to going to India." However, it has been announced by the Oval Office that Trump will be travelling to Ahemadabad and New Delhi on February 24 and 25.
When asked about the relation Trump and Modi shares, Trump said, "He (Prime Minister Narendra Modi) is a friend of mine. He's a great gentleman."
It is notable that last year in the United States, Houston, Modi hosted a grand event, President Trump was invited there to see the immense gathering of 50,000 Indian-Americans cheering on the two leaders. In 2019, the two leaders had met four times which has strengthened bond they share.
'Howdy, Modi!' turned out to be a mega success, largest-ever gathering hosted by a foreign politician in the US and Donald Trump even called PM Modi a "rockstar."
With the aim to further strengthen strategic ties, now, Trump is scheduled to visit India later in February. Trump has also shown his firm believe to sign a trade deal if he finds it worth.
"They (Indians) want to do something and we'll see... if we can make the right deal, (we) will do it," said Trump, prior his visit to the country as the 45th US president.
PM Modi and Donald Trump are expected to joint address a massive public rally at the newly built Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Being built at an estimated cost of $100 million, the Motera Stadium with a seating capacity of 100,000 spectators will be the world's largest cricket stadium overtaking the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia.
