Earlier today, the President spoke to reporters about his successful visit and the growing power of the U.S.–India partnership. A few highlights:
On India: “I admire your country tremendously. I respect your Prime Minister tremendously . . . I think that India is going to be a tremendous player [now and] over the next period of 50 years and 100 years.”
On economic opportunity: “We just had a meeting . . . I thought it was a great meeting with some of the biggest businessmen in the world that come from India. They’re agreeing to invest billions and billions of dollars.”
On trade: “We also talked about tariffs because as you know, India is probably the highest-tariff nation in the world, meaning charging tariffs to outsiders. And I said we have to stop that. We have to stop it.”
On the Middle East: “We don’t have to act as a police force. We can act as a military force to win—not a military force to just take care of things in that very, very difficult part of the world.”
