Sumit Pandey | HENB | New Jersey | Dec 17, 2016:: US President-elect Donald Trump has acknowledged the contribution of Indian-Americans in his electoral triumph, saying his victorious campaign did “great with the Hindus”.
“We have a lot of people here tonight from the Indian community, Hindus. We did great with the Hindus,” Trump said while addressing thousands of his supporters during a “Thank You” rally in Orlando, Florida, the key battle ground state where he emerged victorious comfortably.
He started by citing African Americans and Hispanics for their support and then Indian-Americans, before he segued to “Hindus”.
Looking for them in the audience, he said, “Where are they? We have a big group. There they are. I want to thank you. You folks were amazing. They were amazing and voted and they were fantastic.”
In October, Trump became the first presidential nominee of a major US party to reach out to Indian-Americans, pitching himself to them directly at a rally in Edison, New Jersey.
He professed his love for Hindus there, saying, “I love Hindu” and that under his administration, India and the US will be “best friends”.
Trump spoke glowingly of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him a “great man”, and used an election slogan inspired by one used by the Indian leader in his own campaign: “Aab ki Baar Trump Sarkar”.
The Trump family – son Eric Trump and his wife Lara Trump – then visited several Hindu temples over Diwali in Virginia and Florida.
The Trump campaign also released an advertisement in which he was seen saying “Aab ki Baar Trump Sarkar”+.
Republican Hindu Coalition chairman Shalabh Salli Kumar said all this had an impact on the voting pattern of Indian-Americans, who traditionally have been strong Democratic supporters.
Though most of the Hindu Americans supported Donald Trump for his open version against Radical Islam, Jihadi terrorism and his appreciation for Hindus in US+ and PM Modi of India+, Indian American of Muslim origin and Bangladeshi Muslims wanted to defeat Trump for strengthening the hands of Pro Pak Hillary Clinton and her Islamic counterpart Huma Abedin+.
