Twitter mocks Donald Trump's claim of 7 million people welcoming him in Ahmadabad
New Delhi : The US President Donald Trump has been trolled on social media over his claims that around 7 million people will be coming to welcome him in Ahmedabad during his India visit.
Speaking with the journalists, one day before his Washington visit, Donald Trump bragged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has promised him that there will be more than 7 million people welcoming him between the airport and his reception event in Ahmedabad.
"We're not treated very well by India, but I happen to like Prime Minister Modi a lot. And he told me we'll have 7 million people between the airport and the event," Trump said, referring to a roadshow ahead of a "Namaste Trump" rally in Ahmedabad, the main city in Gujarat where he will begin the trip.

Modi is going to regret making that random “7 million people” promise to Trump. He’s hung up on it like a baby.— Saket Gokhale (@SaketGokhale) February 19, 2020
I just hope POTUS doesn’t sulk & impose tariffs/call off his visit when he realizes it was all a “jumla”. https://t.co/QfFax4HY0d
Will Ahmedabad declare a holiday so that 7 million out of 8.8 million can line the roads for Trump?— Sumbit Pa*TROLL (@DrNo771) February 19, 2020
Fresh from Impeachment saga, Trump comes to Ahmedabad for a respite, where his friend Modi has promised him 7 Million people (more than population of Ahmedabad) to greet him on the roads! Govt spent crores of our money on flowers & wall to keep poverty out of his sight!— Prashant Bhushan (@pbhushan1) February 19, 2020
Howdy, President! FYI -— Saral Patel (@SaralPatel) February 19, 2020
Total population of Ahmedabad is 55 Lakhs. That's 5.5 million.
It seems one fool managed to fool another fool. #NamasteTrump #KemChoTrump https://t.co/aieaVLMEZY
