US President Donald Trump on Sunday embarked on his two-day maiden visit to India, scheduled to reach Ahmedabad on Monday morning. Speaking to reporters before boarding the Air Force One, Trump revealed that he had committed to the visit a long time back.

“…I am excited about the visit. …Prime Minister Modi is a very good friend,” he said.

“I have to fly back and attend a rally in South Carolina… There is little rest…,” said Trump.
