Washington:��Donald Trump has commented on India for the first time after he entered the presidential race, saying that the country is doing great and no one is talking about it.��India is doing great,�
After hitting the presidential campaign trial, this is for the first time that Trump has gave a glimpse into his thought about India, even as he has been openly critical about many countries like China, Mexico and Japan in many of his speeches.
�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,� Trump said.
�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,� Trump said referring to his CNN interview in September 2007.
�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,� he said.
�All of a sudden, people are talking about China and India and other places, even from an economic standpoint. America has come down a long way, a long way. The United States has come down a long way, and it�s very, very sad. We�re not respected, he added.
