This phone call generally shows the importance that trump administration is giving to India. Trump generally spoke too positive about India denouncing the various job outsource while making fun of ancient India and their call centre worker. The former Indian envoy to Washington Nirupama rao, said: “India should not waste time reaching out to Mr Trump and establish good relationship with them and increase growth in all sectors”.
There was one another issue of Trump’s campaign, it was his constant barrage against immigrants. It has been pointed out that Trump wants a freeze on new green cards and a restructuring of their H-1B visa programme and make it difficult for US companies to hire skilled workers from abroad. In which indian are playing primary role as most of the indians in us are the primary recipients of H-1B visa.
It seems that Trump will support India and help in its growth as he supported the Hindu republican and the TRUMP MODI friendship will be in favour of both these countries.
