Trump says Modi expects massive crowds during India visit

US President Donald Trump will be visiting India next week, with his packed schedule including a stop in Gujarat, the home state of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "He had promised to visit India in his first term, and this now stands fulfilled", Shringla said, adding that Trump is expected to be accompanied by a high-level delegation, which is being finalized.

At the end of the visit, sources said there would be a "fairly comprehensive joint statement" that will be "forward-looking and encompass the close and important relationship that we have forged". His visit is aimed at smoothing ties strained by trade disputes and could also allow him to woo tens of thousands of Indian-American voters ahead of the US presidential election.

Ahead of the big visit, media has been focused on what the two leaders may be saying to read the signals about the outcome of the Trump-Modi summit.

The leaders of China, Japan and Israel have all visited Ahmedabad since Modi became prime minister.

The US had approved the sale of 24 multi-role MH-60 "Romeo" Seahawk helicopters to India at an estimated cost of US $2.4 billion in April a year ago. After spending about 30-45 minutes touring the monument, they will depart for New Delhi.

'Namaste Trump', a mega event at Motera cricket stadium, seems to be the only engagement U.S. President Donald Trump will have in Ahmedabad on February 24.

In the last two decades, there have been five presidential visits from United States to India.

The news outlet further confirmed that a spectacular Trump-Modi event on lines of Howdy Modi will be held at the Stadium but there will be no inauguration.

As per the schedule, Modi and the USA president will take part in a 22-km roadshow from the Ahmedabad airport to the cricket stadium.

In 2019, Trump suspended India's special trade designation after the Modi government put price caps on medical devices.

"It may be due to several reasons, including the unexpected economic slowdown in India's economic growth, impact of US-China trade war, GSP withdrawal from the US side and retaliatory tariffs on specific US goods from the Indian side", USISPF said. "Even a so-called "mini deal" on trade is likely to be embarrassingly modest", said Joshua White, who served under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama.
