Ahead of his visit to India scheduled on February 24 and 25, Donald Trump twitted saying, he was looking forward to the visit and it was a great honour that Facebook ranked him number one and Prime Minister Narendra Modi as number two based on their popularity. At the invitation of Prime Minister Modi, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will visit India, which was announced by the White House earlier this week.
President Trump on Twitter cited Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Facebook as he claimed to be the number one Facebook. The tweet reads as “Great honour, I think? Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that ‘Donald J. Trump is Number 1 on Facebook. Number 2 is Prime Minister Modi of India.’ Actually, I am going to India in two weeks. Looking forward to it!”
This isn’t the first time that the President of the U.S stated Facebook’s no1 and 2. In an interview to CNBC TV last month Trump said,” I’m No.1 on Facebook, you know who’s no.2? Modi from India.”
On his visit to India, Trump will also visit Ahmedabad apart from New Delhi, to address several thousands of people along with PM Modi at the newly built Motera stadium, the largest cricket stadium in the world. Apart from which Trump and Prime Minister Modi would participate in a roadshow which is planned along a seven-kilometre stretch from Ahemdabad airport to Sabarmati Ashram.
This would be Trump’s first bilateral visit in 2020 and also the first after his acquittal by the Senate in the impeachment trial. The senior officials refused to comment on this issue and spoke about the two countries are on the verge of a mini trade deal.
