Trumpís triumphal visit to India has all the right people worried

It’s unfortunate that live coverage of President Trump receiving what AP calls “adulation from a massive, colorful crowd” of 125,000 took place during the wee hours of the morning for most Americans. But the consequences of his roughly 36 hours in India will be long lasting and important. He is about to retire for the night in New Delhi after the enormous rally in Ahmedabad, the economically advanced capital of the state Gujarat, Prime Minister Modi’s home turf, and a quick visit to the Taj Mahal.

However personally gratifying it may have been to equal the overseas crowds Barack Obama was able to draw in Berlin, giving the lie to media claims that Trump is hated overseas, this visit has some very serious goals that are being accomplished. First of all, a trade agreement that lowers India’s high tariffs on American exports, a relic of the days of import-substitution manufacturing by an impoverished India. Now, the United States has become India’s number one export market, and Trump has plenty of leverage to use in lowering those barriers and rapidly increasing American sales to the subcontinent. India’s population is predicted to surpass China’s in the near future, meaning that Indian markets can pick up the slack if China falters under the weight of coronavirus.

Side Bar: I will be shutting my mouth, standing back as the Democrat Party & their lock Step” media does a magnificent job destroying itself politically. Their leaders are a joke, their 2020 POTUS Candidates are a joke, their DNC is a joke!!! I just think they are in total chaos & full bore panic!!! Here’s why?

POTUS, Donald J. Trump will carry Texas, Florida & Ohio with his eyes closed. But... Trump will not be closing his eyes or his mouth or, his rallies!!!! Trumpie will run like an “Energizer Battery” that never loses its charge...period!!!

Unusually, Tump was wearing a yellow tie at the rally in India, not his standard red. I presume there is a Hindu reason for the change, but don’t know it.

I think the President says he gets energized by the rallies and since he’s been doing them throughout his term in office he must like doing them.

What do we buy from India? A lot.

Many companies over the past few years have been quietly moving much of their manufacturing out of China and into India and a few other countries.

Retail stores are just now getting their new products from China. They had orders in before the New Years to Chinese factories for Christmas season 2020 but they also hedged their bets and ordered much from outside China.

“...their 2020 POTUS Candidates are a joke,...”
While watching the Prez and the Ms. at the Taj. couldn’t help visualizing Mayor Pete and Husband walking hand in hand in the same area. The USA would have to hang it up for good.
