World leaders followed by White House
The White House boasts of having 21 million followers on Twitter but it follows only 19 people and 16 of those are Americans. And the exception remaining three includes PM Narendra Modi. It proves that US gives priority to India over other countries.
In addition to PM Modi, the White House also follows President Ramnath Kovind and Prime Minister’s Office. It also follows Indian Embassy in USA and Indians in USA.
Modi Trump bonhomie
Both the leaders share a good rapport. They have met several times on different occasions. Also, they have jointly addressed two massive informal gatherings – first in the US and the second in India.
Earlier this week, President Trump said that he would be surprised, if the PM Modi stood firm on his ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine that is an anti-malaria drug but considered useful for treating COVID-19 patients.
Trump threatened Modi of retaliation
US President Donald Trump was speaking to media persons at White House when he indirectly threatened India of retaliation, if his demand for drugs wasn’t fulfilled. He said that he talked to PM Modi and that Modi assured him of help.
Hours after the press briefing, India lifted the ban from hydroxychloroquine and allowed its export to USA and other countries. The US President said that he bought more than 29 million tablets.
