“Prime Minister Modi said we will have 10 million people to greet you. Here’s my problem, we have a packed house. We have a lot of people, thousands of people who couldn’t get in. It’s going to look like peanuts from now on. I’ll never be satisfied with the crowd if we have 10 million in India,” the US President said.

Donald Trump, accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump, is scheduled to travel to Ahmedabad, Agra and New Delhi on February 24 and 25. In Ahmedabad, President Trump will address the ”Namaste Trump” event jointly with PM Modi at the newly built Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel cricket stadium in Motera, which is the world’s largest cricket stadium.
India’s crowd is not the only problem he is facing at present. He has some reservations against the Oscar award to South Korean movie Parasite. “We got enough problems with South Korea, with trade. On top of it, they give them the best movie of the year?” Trump said in Colorado.
“How bad was the Academy Awards this year? Was it good? I don’t know,”
Neon, the US distributor for “Parasite,” answered the president on Twitter, saying his opposition to the subtitled film was “Understandable, he can’t read.”
