Re: India-US relations: News and Discussions III

The rap against Trump is "he doesn't know what to talk". People probably compare him to Obama or Clinton who were smooth talkers. Does it really matter what he says? It only matters what he does. Let's see what he does and how he interacts with India. And also how he treats Pakistan.
