President Donald Trump compared India’s prime minister to Elvis Presley, and called him the “father” of his country.
The U.S. president gave a news conference Tuesday afternoon alongside Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose right-wing leadership he has frequently praised.
“I remember India before,” Trump told reporters, “now not intimately, but I remember India before, it was very torn, there was a lot of dissension, a lot of fighting, and he brought it all together, like a father would bring it together. Maybe he’s the father of India, we’ll call him the father of India. I think that’s not so bad, but he brought things together. You don’t hear that anymore.”
Another reporter asked Trump about the joint rally they held Sunday in Houston, where the prime minister met with energy companies vying for part of a $100 billion market to diversify the country’s power generation.
“Tremendous spirit in that room, and they loved this gentleman to my right, they really do,” Trump said. “Those people went crazy. That was like Elvis, that was like an American, he was like an American version of Elvis. It was like we brought in the middle of an all-American — Elvis Presley came back. That was quite something, they love your prime minister, it’s a great thing.”

This pro-Trump pastor is now praying for impeachment after watching Republicans ‘sell their souls to the devil’
A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.
“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."
