United States President Donald Trump has complimented Indian trade negotiators as the best and said trade talks between the two countries were moving along. We are trying very hard to make better trade deals with India, he said during a White House Diwali celebration on Tuesday.
Showing the trade negotiators as highly skilled and making the talks sound difficult for the Americans, he said, They are very good traders, they are very good negotiators. And turning to India’s Ambassador Navtej Sarna, he said, You would say (that), right They are the best, and so we are working and it is moving along, he added.
The annual celebration was held a week later because Diwali fell on the day after the mid-term elections when the results were still coming in. He repeatedly spoke of his close ties to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said, We love your country. And I have great, great respect, as you know, for your Prime Minister Modi. And he told Sarna, So please give him my warmest regards. We will be talking to him soon.

He also recalled that his daughter had met Modi during a visit to India and he was now also her friend. He said, India is the world’s largest democracy. And the relationship between our two countries can act as a bulwark for freedom, prosperity and peace.
We are very close and I think closer than ever before, Trump said, and Sarna agreed, saying, Absolutely, sir.
