Donald Trump, Republican Presidential Front Runner, said that ‘India is doing great. Nobody talks about it.’ These comments on the country, representing a glimpse into his thoughts, were his first ones after he came into the Presidential race. He was openly critical in many of his speeches about several countries including China, Japan, and Mexico.
Mr. Trump said, “That was the beginning of China. That was the beginning of India, when India -- by the way, India is doing great. Nobody talks about it. And I have big jobs going up in India. But India is doing great."
Referring to his CNN interview of September 2007, Trump added saying that, "But that was the beginning of China. That was the beginning of India. Look at everything I told you. Everything I told you is all right, whether it's Iraq, whether it's Iran, whether it's China, whether it's India, whether it's Japan."
He said, "Just look at this country. We have gone from this tremendous power that was respected all over the world to somewhat of a laughing stock."
The Presidential candidate said that people are talking about India and China, all of a sudden, even from the economic standpoint. He said that the America has come down a long way and said it is sad that they are not respected.
