In his first reaction at the photo op, PM Modi said, “I am grateful for the respect shown to me and the welcome given by President Trump and the US administration.” PM went down memory lane and added something that few would be aware of. He said, “Even before becoming the President of America, Donald Trump had good words for me.” PM Modi also said that, “I will always remember when Trump praised me in 2014. He was not even in the presidential race then.”
