Trump Jr was taking part in an event celebrating the success of his book “Liberal Privilege”. The event was organised exclusively for the Indian American community in New York on Sunday evening.
In his book “Liberal Privilege”, he has documented allegations of corruption against 77-year-old Joe Biden’s family, particularly against his son Hunter Biden.
Al Mason, a friend and supporter of the Trump family, also the co-chair of the Trump Victory Indian American Finance Committee had organised the event. Prominent Indian American community members like Dr Raj Biyani and Dr Shoba Shalani Chokkalingam were also present at the event.
When asked how his book will resonate amongst the Indian American community particularly, Trump Jr said that Indian Americans understand hard work but they also understand hypocrisy.
“Indian Americans understand hard work but they also understand hypocrisy. They see what’s going on in America, while people have turned a blind eye to violence to looting, to the destruction of businesses and their families and the schooling for our children,” he said.
“And they have done that under Democrat watch. I think it points all the things and the corruption that plagued India for many years, and that’s going on with the Biden family. And so, that person could be the next President of the US, I think that hypocrisy will resonate. I think people will understand what we’re truly fighting for this election,” he added.
Speaking at the event, Trump Jr said that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is not good for India as he could be soft on China,
“We have to understand the threat of China and no one knows that probably better than Indian-Americans,” said Trump Jr.
Donald Trump on Modi and India
Earlier, Donald Trump highlighted the great relationship that he has developed with Indian Americans and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, US President Donald Trump said that he would think that Indian Americans would vote for him in the 3 November presidential election.
“We have great support from India. We have great support from Prime Minister Modi. I would think that the Indian (American) people would be voting for Trump,” the president told reporters at a White House news conference.
“Prime Minister Modi is a friend of mine and he’s doing a very good job. Nothing easy, but he’s done a very good job,” he said as he recollected his historic address at the ‘Howdy Modi’ event in Houston last September.
We had an event in Houston, as you know. And it was a fantastic event. I was invited by Prime Minister Modi and this was a massive (event)… And it was incredible. And the prime minister could not have been more generous. We have great support from India. We have great support from Prime Minister Modi,” Trump said.
The president then referred to his India visit early this year in February before the coronavirus pandemic hit the two countries.
“I also, as you know, went to India just prior to the pandemic setting in because India has been hit very hard, left really about a week before that, and we had an incredible time. What we saw the people are so incredible it’s really an incredible place, an incredible country and its definitely big,” he said.
“But you’ve got a great leader and he’s a great person,” Trump said.
