Trump in India: A brief history of US presidents’ trips
The last 4 Presidents have visited India – in an attempt to make India the southern fence-post of NATO. Hasn’t happened yet – but what DID happen is Pakistan feels it is being slighted and that is NOT a good thing for the US, especially considering Kashmer is a ‘man-in-the-middle’ region that is accepted by Pakistan but rejected by New Delhi.. I believe DumbAss Doofus is going to Blow this entire situation sky high between 2 nuke powers in the same region.. NOT a good thing!
