Trump confirmed that he would be attending ‘Howdy, Modi’ a mega rally taking place at Houston, Texas on September 22
Modi is coming to ‘Howdy, Modi’ and so is US President Donald Trump. In fact, Modi is very ecstatic about this and took to Twitter to laud the “special gesture”. But this all just a game of economies. The tables have turned on the US.
While China is pacing towards taking the lion’s share in the world economy, it seems Trump is reaching out to India
Howdy Modi, Trump here
Before you think of heading out for the event, you must know that the tickets are sold out! 50,000 people rushed in to meet the Indian Prime Minister. And got added perks thanks to the US President’s visit. In fact, this is being anticipated as the largest ever turnout for a foreign leader on US soil. (Clearly, the Modi wave is not just limited to India)
While two very powerful leaders are coming together to address an audience, it’s important to see how Trump has conveniently placed himself in the chair next to Modi at the ‘Howdy, Modi’ event. So, while it is a win for India, it is mostly a win for the US.
The trade war between the US and China has not been hidden from anyone. This means that China has not imported any supply from the US since February. So to keep the wheels of the US economy in motion, it is turning to the ever-growing Indian market.
According to an NDTV report, ‘India is open to making purchases, and the nation is already the sixth-largest buyer of US liquefied natural gas.’ Trump joining ‘Howdy, Modi’ is good news to the American trader, especially in the energy field. While India has taken its sweet time to turn to natural gas as a source of energy, it is the sixth-largest buyer of US liquefied natural gas.
The last one standing
Howdy, Modi: Trump is coming to meet the Indian Prime Minister
China’s influence has been exponentially increasing. And we take a look at South Asia, China has a hold on almost every country. There is a Chinese port in Sri Lanka (Hambantota) and in Pakistan (Gwadar) and other upcoming projects which the country is funding in Mayanmar (Kyaukpyu) and Bangladesh (Chittagong). India is still the only one intact.
