Modi promised 5-7 million people will attend Gujarat event says Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's bonhomie will be up for display once again later this month and now the US President has said his Indian counterpart has promised him that millions and millions of people will attend the Gujarat event and also cheer them on at the airport.

A day after the White House announced Trump's India visit on February 24 and 25, Donald Trump said on Tuesday he is looking forward to the India visit. He also said that he spoke to PM Modi over the weekend about his visit.

"I am (going to India). He (PM Modi) said we will have millions and millions of people. He thinks we will have 5-7 million people just from the airport to the new stadium," said Donald Trump, while talking to the media about his upcoming tour.

Joking about the 'Howdy, Modi' event in Houston last year or his own events in the US, Trump said it is not a good feeling when 50,000 people attend these gatherings.

"When we have 50,000 people, I'm not going to feel so good we'll have five to seven million people just from the airport to the new stadium. And you know it is the largest stadium in the world. (They are) building it now. It's almost complete and it's the largest in the world," Trump said.

Trump also said, "I look forward to going to India." The Oval Office has announced that he will be travelling to Ahmedabad and New Delhi on February 24 and 25.
