President Trump is seeking re-election to the White House in the November 3 presidential elections in the United States."President Trump is incredibly grateful for the widespread support he has received from the people of India and from millions of Indian-Americans across the United States," Ms Matthews told a news agency.

According to the survey results conducted by Al Mason, co-chair of the Trump Victory Indian-American Finance Committee, more than 50 per cent of Indian-Americans in the battle ground states of Michigan, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania and Virginia are crossing over to support Donald Trump.

During the more than three and half years of his presidency, US prez Donald Trump made an additional effort to reach out to the Indian-American community. His close relationship with Prime Minister Narendra Modi - reflected in the two leaders jointly addressing enormous public rallies in Houston and Ahmedabad - has helped him make deep inroads among the Indian-Americans.

"He (Trump) acknowledges the crucial part Indian-Americans play in boosting our economy, complementing our culture, and empowering our communities," Ms Matthews said.

During his first two years in office, President Trump led the US to its biggest economic comeback in history, she said, adding that "the unemployment rate among Indian-Americans reduced by nearly 33 per cent."

"The President continues to fight for the prosperity, health, and freedom of all Americans, including the flourishing and hardworking Indian-American community," she said, responding to a question related to the rising popularity of Trump among the community.

Al Mason said while the vision of Trump is the driving force in this unparalleled outreach with the Indian-Americans and a new peak in ties with India, the entire family including the First Lady Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who have recently visited India with him, displayed their great respect and love for the country.

"Not to overlook son Donald Trump Jr and Kimberly Guilfoyle, senior advisor to Donald Trump for President, Inc. and national chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee," Al Mason said.
Former TV host-cum-attorney Guilfoyle is now regarded as one of the most mighty individuals in the Trump campaign.

Both Trump Jr and Kimberly Guilfoyle have time and again reflected Trump's love for India and Indian-Americans which is considered in their remarks at various Indian-American events in New York.

"Want to see America work with incredible allies like India to make the world a safer place," Don Jr said last year.

"America embodies family values, values of hardworking people, powerful work ethic, entrepreneurial spirit and these values are "shared splendidly with India as well," said Ms Guilfoyle, who holds that Indian-Americans are a crucial ally for the campaign.

"I think we're so fortunate as a country to have so many talented, dedicated, patriotic Indian-Americans making up the incredibly diverse fabric culturally of this country and we''re lucky that they have called it their home," Ms Guilfoyle, who has helped begin the process, said.
