US President Donald Trump will be joining PM Narendra Modi at a mega event in Houston named “Howdy, Modi!”. The September 22 event will be the first time a US president and Indian PM will be addressing a joint rally.
Amid speculation if Trump would join PM Modi at the Houston event, White House issued a statement to confirm that he would attend the rally. This is the third successive meeting between Trump and PM Modi within the span of a few weeks after the G20 and G7 summits.
More than 50,000 Indian-Americans from across the US have registered for the September 22 mega “Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures” event to be held at the sprawling NRG Stadium in Houston.
“Howdy”, short for ‘How do you do?’, is a friendly greeting commonly used in southwestern United States and the event has been designed as a greeting to PM Modi.
