Trump loves a big crowd. He’ll get one of his biggest in India.

By Anita Kumar 2 hrs ago
AHMEDABAD, India — Heading into election season, President Donald Trump is looking to surround himself with sympathetic officials, create made-for-TV spectacles and gin up massive, adoring crowds.

Narendra Modi, Donald Trump standing next to a man in a suit and tie: Indian policemen on Saturday walk past a billboard in Ahmedabad, India, welcoming President Donald Trump.

He’ll find it all in India — he made sure of it.

Just a few weeks before Trump was set to jet off to India, the president sent aides scrambling with the seemingly last-minute decision to hold a rally with 110,000 people at the world’s largest cricket stadium — a colossal structure that’s not even technically open yet.

There, he’s expecting an enthusiastic reception as he appears alongside the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, who shares Trump’s nationalist streak.

Mr. Trump now heads to India for his first presidential visit there. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has planned a two-day spectacle called “Namaste Trump.” Thousands of Modi supporters are expected to line the streets.

Oh shoot. I thought you meant he had decided to flee the country for good.

You mean he's coming back? India can keep him.

His speech to the big crowd should be inadvertently funny. I'm great, America is more wonderful than anyplace (India isn't), tariff threats/promises, great steaks here in HinduLand, socialist-something-or-other.

Indian reaction: 'Who's Adam Schiff?'

Is he going to spend $250 million per day, like the Obamas did?

Wait until he demands a cheeseburger in a place where cattle are sacred and not even McDonalds serve beef. Add in that the Indian Prime minister Modi is a strict vegetarian and there is every chance that Trump could insult an entire subcontinent

Additional note:
As Trump is swanning around India, he is preparing to surrender Afghanistan (and the rights of Afghan women) over to the Taliban.
This will put Afghanistan squarely under the influence of long time Taliban supporter Pakistan. This is a major loss for India. I'm sure Modi will make this very clear to the The Big Stupid.

I'm always happy when Trump leaves the country because it is then possible that he'll never come back.

His visit seems to be coinciding (by sheer chance, I’m sure) with an outbreak of anti-Muslim violence there:

Quote

Violent demonstrations again broke out in New Delhi on Tuesday, just one day after at least seven people were killed and more than 100 were injured in clashes between supporters and critics of a new Indian citizenship law that favors non-Muslims, The Associated Press reported.

A group of Hindu protesters reportedly spread over the Bhajanpur area of the nation’s capital, shouting praises for gods and goddesses while throwing stones at mainly Muslim groups that oppose the law.

Fruit and vegetable shops, in addition to a Muslim shrine, were set on fire...

Sort of an Indian Kristallnacht. One wonders how US evangelicals view this particular persecution of monotheists by polytheists that seems to find inspiration from Trump.
