WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will meet next week with the leaders of India and Australia at events in Texas and Ohio to promote trade and investment.

 

The White House said Trump will travel to Houston, Texas, on Sept. 22 to participate in an event with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India and to "discuss ways to deepen their energy and trade relationship."

 

Trump will then travel to Wapakoneta, Ohio, where he will be joined by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison for a tour of a new, Australian-owned manufacturing facility. Trump is hosting Morrison for a state dinner at the White House this week, Trump's second such formal gathering since taking office.

 

In June, the United States ended its preferential trade treatment for India, removing it from the Generalized System of Preferences program that allowed duty-free entry for up to $5.6 billion worth of its annual exports to the United States.

 

U.S. and Indian trade negotiators ended talks in July without making major progress on a range of disputes over tariffs and other protectionist measures imposed by both sides that are straining bilateral ties, officials told Reuters in August.

 

The two sides had resumed trade talks after Trump and Modi met on the sidelines of the G20 summit in June and agreed to seek to deepen the two countries' relationship.

 

Trump has repeatedly called out India for its high tariffs.

 

The Houston event at NRG Stadium and is called "Howdy Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures," and is expected to draw tens of thousands of people, the White House said.

Should be entertaining what gaffs he'll come up with concerning both countries.

I wonder if he'll say something like, 'the Prime Minister of India doesn't look very red'?

Never a dull moment.

 

Could be worked out as a TV game show format - "Guess the Gaff" (working title).

At the time of the US elections, I said to an American friend that I'd like to see Trump win - purely for the entertainment value he would provide.

I've not been disappointment so far.

I wanted him to win for the same reason Putin put him there. To hasten the demise of the US hegemony. The entertainment is a  bonus.

Maybe Trump will say ...'you don't know this (locals) but Australia is a huge island surrounded by water ; deep water , record deepness!'

He's bound to say something ridiculous about India or Australia.

He never reads any briefings or pays attention to anything anyone says.

He will make a deal then one of them will say he had a hair out of place then the deal will be off and sanctions imposed.

 

World leaders are better to just hide from the buffoon and say nothing until he is gone.

 

Im sure there will be some great books published when hes gone.
