United States President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi get “along so well” and the two countries are partnering in defence, trade and other sectors, said Nikki Haley, American former envoy to United Nations, on Saturday.
Haley said that the foreign policy of President Trump has been “gangbusters over any other president”.
She added that Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi get “along so well” and the two countries are partnering in defence, trade and other sectors.
And President Trump and Prime Minister Modi get along so well. But now we are actually partnering with them on defense and trade and other areas,” she said at a fireside chat event organised by the Indian Voices for Trump in the battleground state of Philadelphia.
The relationship with India has never been stronger ever. India is the largest democracy that shares our values.
The 4 million Indian American people back home in America are truly spectacular people.
Addressing the audience, Haley said, “Trump is the only US President to go to India and in front of India`s neighbour China say that America loves India, America respects India. America respects India and America will always be a faith-full and loyal friend to the Indian people.
Haley, the two-term governor of South Carolina, was the first Cabinet-ranking Indian-American in any presidential administration.
She is now campaigning for Trump ahead of the US election.
She further added that she could not refuse the second offer of the post of US Ambassador to the United Nations as Trump had met all the conditions she had set for accepting the position.
48-year-old Haley revealed that soon after winning the November 2016 US presidential election Donald Trump had offered her the position of Secretary of State which she politely refused.
Trump is “not very much a politician”, “what you see, what he is“, she said when asked about the president.
Speaking about China in view of national security threat, Haley said that Beijing is the United States’ “absolute number one” national security threat adding that US President Donald Trump has made sure China does not steal American intellectual property.
“He has made sure that they know that they can not turn around and steal intellectual property. They cannot go and spy on our universities, and that we are going to hold them accountable as we go forward,” she added.
“It’s really allowed us the opportunity to excel in every field and every direction we need to go and continue to support him so that we can continue doing that for our children, our grandchildren right,” she added.
Haley is a former US envoy to the United Nations and she has also served as a two-term governor of South Carolina.
Haley was the first Cabinet-ranking Indian-American in any presidential administration.
