Former US vp and Democratic Party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden on Saturday slammed President Donald Trump for his touch upon India’s air air pollution. Biden stated that he and his working mate Kamala Harris deeply worth America’s partnership with India.
Deeply worth partnership with India, says Biden
“President Trump called India ‘filthy’. It’s not how you talk about friends and it’s not how you solve global challenges like climate change,” Biden stated in a tweet, two days after Trump throughout a presidential debate accused China, India and Russia of not caring for their “filthy” air.

It’s not the way you discuss pals—and it is not the way you remedy international challenges like local weather change.@KamalaHarris and I deeply worth our partnership—and can put respect again on the middle of our overseas coverage. https://t.co/TKcyZiNwY6

Earlier on Thursday, Donald Trump had stated, “Look at China, how filthy it’s. Look at Russia. Look at India. The air is filthy”. Trump had made the comment through the closing presidential debate with Biden in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Kamala Harris and I deeply worth our partnership and can put respect again on the centre of our overseas coverage,” Biden stated in a tweet Saturday as he retweeted his op-ed within the newest concern of ethnic India West weekly.
Biden’s pitch for India-US partnership
“The Obama-Biden years were some of the best we’ve ever had between our two countries. A Biden-Harris administration will build on that great progress and do even more. We can and should be natural allies,” Biden wrote within the op-ed.
“That’s why if elected President, I will continue what I have long called for: The US and India will stand together against terrorism in all its forms and work together to promote a region of peace and stability where neither China nor any other country threatens its neighbours,” he stated in op-ed.
“We’ll open markets and grow the middle class in both the United States and India, and confront other international challenges together, like climate change, global health, transnational terrorism and nuclear proliferation,” stated Biden.
Biden has greatest understanding of our group, say Indian-Americans
The Indian-American group within the US has stated that Joe Biden has a ‘deep connection’ with them.
“Biden celebrated Diwali with (former) president Obama within the White House and at his residence. The former vp has a deep reference to Indo-American group and India. Biden understands the values of Indo Americans. In his current Op-ed he shares how he felt deeply related to the Indian group and the values of the Indian group,” information company PTI quoted Ajay Jain Bhutoria, a Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur.
Referring to the ultimate presidential debate between Trump and Biden on Friday, Bhutoria stated that the president criticised India on the world stage.
“The community understands who the real friend of India is, who the foe. Trump is a foe. Most recently on the debate stage saying- you cannot trust India’s Covid-19 numbers and India is filthy. He has suspended the H1 Visa Programme, put trade deals with India in jeopardy, and has used (Indian Prime Minister Narendra) Modi’s friendship for photo opportunities only,” he alleged, as per PTI.
Aditi Pal with Desi Blue, a bunch of South Asian Americans, stated that the group has at all times recognized Biden as a buddy of India.
“Seven years ago, as vice president, he told business leaders in Mumbai that the US-India partnership was the defining relationship of the 21st Century. As a Senator, he was instrumental in the passing of India’s Civil Nuclear Deal. And it was during Obama-Biden administration that the two countries saw their best years for the Indo-US relationship. Joe’s choice of Kamala Harris also gave us immigrants from India a sense of pride,” Pal informed PTI.
According to Ashok Bhatt, businessman and former California Water commissioner, Obama-Biden administration Democrats gave India precedence. “When Narendra Modi grew to become Prime Minister, Obama-Biden welcomed him and opened up financial areas and visas to college students and vacationers. H1 visas grew to become so liberal and India benefitted probably the most from it,” he informed PTI.
“I believe the Biden-Kamala team will be great for Indo-American relationships and the economy of both countries will be flourishing,” Bhatt stated, as per PTI.
