President Trump was greeted with a heroes welcome by more than 110,000 people in a rally that will not soon be topped.
They played “Macho Man” by the Village People as President Trump made his grand entrance. Trump praised the relationship between the two countries and closed a defense deal.
Fox News reported that Trump was greeted by large crowds at the rally where he announced a $3 billion deal that will send state-of-the-art military helicopters to the country.
The rally was titled “Namaste Trump,” and was a sequel to the “Howdy, Modi” event Trump held with prime minister Narendra Modi in Houston last September.
Trump’s motorcade passed seemingly endless crowds in Ahmedabad with many cheering and waving American flags on the way to the 110,000 capacity Sardar Patel Stadium where the rally was conducted.
Large billboards were spread throughout the route showing Modi alongside Trump and first lady Melania…
… Before Modi and Trump came out on stage, the song “Macho Man” by the Village People was heard playing in the stadium. When the music stopped, they arrived on stage, and both leaders held the arms of each other into the air.
After each country’s national anthem played, Modi began speaking to the crowd about shared values and ideas as Trump sat in his chair beside Melania. All three were located in a large bulletproof chamber that took up most of the stage.
When Modi handed the podium to President Trump, he thanked those in attendance for the welcome he received, adding that he and Melania would remember the hospitality given.
“America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the Indian people,” Trump said. He announced that he will sell $3 billion worth of state of art helicopters and other equipment to the country.
