36 hours? Well, that shows how much he cares! I sure he hope he sees the wall they built. The Mexicans certainly didn't pay for it.

Were the 7 million people there? Or was it 10 million, as he said the other day? Or was it alternative facts again?

India with its teeming millions is the perfect venue to kick off Trump's MAGAlomaniac 2020 road show. From now until November EVERYTHING Trump does in public (before the "biggest ever" audiences) will be for the purpose of papering over his impeachment, feeding his insatiable appetite for self-aggrandizement and the adulation of the masses, and garnering maximum "free" publicity (courtesy of the ill-used taxpayers of the world) for his re-election campaign. His promise to be the most "transparent" president of all time has proved to be the only one he's ever kept. Pathetic!

Kicking off a whirlwind 36-hour visit to India that emphasizes pageantry over policy, U.S. President Donald Trump received a warm welcome

The usual left styled journalism, know nothing, anyone following these two will know that tough trade talks and corresponding policy change changes are on the table.

The usual righty comment: Untethered from the reality that is Donny.

More than 100,000 people packed into the world's largest cricket stadium in Modi's home state to give Trump the biggest rally crowd of his political career. 

This would seem to thwart the claim by some that because of Trump America is being laughed at by the world. The truth is that the world is thinking "finally".

I'm impressed! The age of India has arrived.

The ‘world’ is not 100,000 Indians. Take a look at the polls from around the world on the opinion of Trump. I think he’s popular in Russia ( obvious reasons ) and Vietnam ( interesting ).

It’s not great.

Modi is a strict vegetarian and will serve Trump that style. Illegal to eat beef Trump's more usual fare.

Please do everyone a favor, and keep him there. It will prevent him from having to flee to Putin when he is voted out of office.

Not at all. It demonstrates that perhaps 100,00 Indians weren’t laughing at Donny. Nice logic failure.

Stories in local media warn of the monkeys that inhabit the landmark pestering tourists for food and, on occasion, menacing both visitors and slingshot-carrying security guards.

Now I can't get the image of a monkey snatching a slingshot from a security guard and waving it around as the security guard chases it.

Just trying to whoo Donnie fiasco away from China and towards India.

Um, it was on video, on the news, around the entire planet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-z4y8OJxlK8

This isn't a claim, it's documented, undeniable history.

I'm sure we are all very happy to see that our great President is doing wonderful things in India. President Trump is just a shoo-in for his second term and these sort of highly successful overseas trips just reinforce his certain electorial success!

Made a mistake before. Trump is popular in the Philippines ( led by Duterte ) not Vietnam. He is popular in India. However, it seems the majority of the countries polled ( Pew ) don’t see him as any good.

This reflects the view of the majority of US citizens at the last election.

And what percentage is that? Less than 30% for sure.

Upsetting Leftists.

Majority of US states support Trump. It’s a “republic” if the Left will allow Americans to keep it.

Congratulations, everyone.

The obvious reelection of Donald Trump is being celebrated early by people around the world.

The foundation of every good policy.

Good thing it’s the people that decide and not the states or you may have some sort of point.

Well you are half right. It’s the people of the various states that decide the president. Again, America is a republic- not a mobocracy.

America is a republic- not a mobocracy.

And then back in reality the Trumpets are a mob.

Trump said millions of illegals voted for Clinton and he won the majority vote as well as the electoral college.

Not your particular flavour of conspiracy theory?

And how do you explain the thousands who left the Motera stadium during his speech?
