How Twitter took to budding romance' between Nawaz Sharif and Donald Trump?
In a telephonic conversation, President Trump said, “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif you have a very good reputation. You are a terrific guy. You are doing amazing work which is visible in every way. I am looking forward to see you soon. As I am talking to you Prime Minister, I feel I am talking to a person I have known for long. Your country is amazing with tremendous opportunities. Pakistanis are one of the most intelligent people. I am ready and willing to play any role that you want me to play to address and find solutions to the outstanding problems."
According to Michael Kugelman, a South Asia associate at the Wilson Center, the transcript is not a full detail but yes "the tone of the conversation and even some of the words that were used were the type of language that Donald Trump would use."
The move came as a shock to India and many experts who believed that once again Trump has taken a U-turn.
Interestingly, in 2012, Trump tweeted, "Get it straight: Pakistan is not our friend. We've given them billions and billions of dollars, and what did we get? Betrayal and disrespect — and much worse. #TimeToGetTough"
Well, Mr Trump, you are not getting straight this time, huh!
Let us take a look at how Twitter reacted:
