Trump to touch down in India at noon


US President Donald Trump will arrive in Ahmedabad on Monday for the first leg of his maiden India trip during which he will visit Mahatma Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram, take part in a roadshow with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and jointly address over one lakh people at a cricket stadium, before heading for Agra to see the iconic Taj Mahal with his wife Melania.

Trump, accompanied by his wife First Lady Melania, daughter Ivanka and a high-level delegation is scheduled to reach Ahmedabad around noon.


Modi along with Trump will address the ‘Namaste Trump’ event in the Motera Stadium, the world’s largest cricket ground with a seating capacity of 1.10 lakh people.

“India awaits your arrival @POTUS @realDonaldTrump! Your visit is definitely going to further strengthen the friendship between our nations,” Modi tweeted.

“See you very soon in Ahmedabad,” he said, responding to a tweet by Trump that he was leaving for India with the US First Lady.
