Not treated well by India, but like PM Narendra Modi a lot: Donald Trump
"Well, we can have a trade deal with India, but I'm really saving the big deal for later on," Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to California.
Last year, Donald Trump had removed India's name from the list of developing countries which had tariff-free access to the U.S. market. Since then the officials from both the nations have been trying to come up to a modest agreement.
According to a report by NDTV, people familiar to the matter have claimed that the officials were into the negotiation phase till recent days, hoping the announcement could be made during Trump's visit to India on Feb 24 and Feb 25.
Trump appeared to confirm that on Tuesday when he told reporters that he still wanted to do "a very big trade deal with India," but added, "I don't know if it will be done before the election."
"We're not treated very well by India, but I happen to like Prime Minister Modi a lot," he added.
