US Will Make Tremendous Trade Deal with India: Trump

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-02-21

Days ahead of his India visit, US President Donald Trump on Thursday said the two countries could make a "tremendous" trade deal.

 

"We're going to India, and we may make a tremendous deal there," Trump said in his commencement address at the Hope for Prisoners Graduation Ceremony in Las Vegas.

 

"Maybe we'll slow down. We'll do it after the election. I think that could happen too. So, we'll see what happens," he said. "But we're only making deals if they're good deals because we're putting America first. Whether people like it or not, we're putting America first," Trump said.

 

Trump, accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump, is scheduled to travel to Ahmedabad, Agra and New Delhi on February 24 and 25.

 

Trump told thousands of his supporters that he "really likes" Prime Minister Modi and they would be talking business. "We've got to talk a little...We've got to talk a little business. It's been hitting us hard. They give us tariffs, one the highest in the world is India," he said.

 

"But we're only making deals if they're good deals because we're putting America first. Whether people like it or not, we're putting America first," Trump said.

 

The bilateral India-US trade in goods and services is about three per cent of the US' world trade.

 

India is now the United States' eighth-largest trading partner in goods and services and is among the world's largest economies.
