Social media users are sharing videos and photos of President Trump’s massive stadium rally in India.
According to Politico, the attendance was over 100k at the world’s largest cricket stadium — a colossal structure that’s not even technically open yet.
Fox News reports President Trump, in his first official visit to India on Monday, was greeted by overflowing crowds and a massive stadium rally where he announced a $3 billion deal that will send state-of-the-art military helicopters to the country.
The “Namaste Trump” rally was a sequel to the “Howdy, Modi” event Trump held with prime minister Narendra Modi in Houston last September.
Trump’s motorcade passed along seemingly endless crowds in Ahmedabad with many cheering and waving American flags on the way to the 110,000 capacity Sardar Patel Stadium.
Large billboards were spread throughout the route showing Trump alongside Modi and his wife Melania.
When Modi handed the podium to Trump, the president thanked those in attendance for the welcome he received, adding that he and Melania would remember the hospitality given. “America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the India people,” Trump said.
Trump also touted the peacefulness of India in the past. Later he announced that he will sell $3 billion dollars worth of state of art helicopters and other equipment to the country.
