September 5, 2020: US President Donald Trump on Friday termed the ongoing tensions at the India-China border as a "very nasty situation," further adding that "if we can do anything we would love to get involved and help." "It has been a very nasty situation and we stand ready to help with respect to China and India. If we can do anything we would love to get involved and help. We are talking to both countries about that," Trump said.



When asked about whether China was bullying India or not, he answered, "I hope not but they are going more strongly at it than a lot of people even understand." Trump further slammed China stating, "China at this point is the nation you should be talking about much more so than Russia because the things that China is doing are far worse. Look at what happened with the China virus, look at what they have done to 188 countries all over the world."





Trump further said that he "gets along with every country" apart from China as he "did not like what is happening with respect to the pandemic". "I do not like it at all. What they have done to this world, this country, Europe and every place else is terrible," he added.



Trump said that he believes the Indian-American community would vote for him in the upcoming presidential elections. "I do!" he said at a media briefing when asked if he thinks the Indian Americans would vote for him in the upcoming elections.





"I do! Last year, we had an event in Huston and it was a fantastic event. It was incredible. Prime Minister Modi (Narendra Mod) could not have been more generous--we have great support from India and PM Modi. I think Indian people would be voting for Trump," he said. He further went on to hail PM Modi as a 'great leader' and a 'great person'.



"PM Modi is a very good friend of mine and he is doing a very good job, it's nothing easy but he is doing a very good job. You have got a great leader and you have got a great person," Trump added.
