Trump lauds Hindu community’s ‘fantastic’ contributions to US

US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump

Washington, Sep 26 (UITV)- US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has praised Hindu community’s “fantastic” contributions to world civilization and American culture.

“The Hindu community has made fantastic contributions to world civilization and to American culture, and we look forward to celebrating our shared values of free enterprise, hard work, family values, and a strong American foreign policy,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.

Trump (70), also confirmed that he would be addressing an Indian-American event in New Jersey next month, the proceeds of which will benefit global victims of Islamic terror.

He issued a short 24-second video message inviting Indian-Americans to attend the “incredible” event on October 15.

“Hello everyone, it is my pleasure to invite you to a Republican Hindu Coalition rally at the PNC Art Center in New Jersey. I am very much looking forward to speaking to thousands of Indian-Americans and other about making America great again. I look forward to seeing everybody there. It would be an incredible evening,” Mr. Trump said in his video message.

This is for the first time in the last two presidential elections that a presidential has confirmed to attend a public Indian-American event.

Trump’s decision is seen as an attempt to woo the small but powerful Indian-American community who can play a key role in some of the battle ground States like Virginia if the race is close.
