Trump to attend Modi Houston rally, Ohio visit with Morrison

On Sunday, President Trump will travel to Houston and Wapakoneta, Ohio, to underscore the important partnerships between the United States and India, and Australia.

In Houston, President Trump will participate in an event with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India. The event, “Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures,” is expected to draw tens of thousands of people. It will be a great opportunity to emphasize the strong ties between the people of the United States and India, to reaffirm the strategic partnership between the world’s oldest and largest democracies, and to discuss ways to deepen their energy and trade relationship.

RNC Deputy Press Secretary Michael Joyce said, reportedly, India and the US have been working towards a bilateral trade agreement.

"The greater Houston area has an incredibly large Indian population reaching out into Fort Bend County and so having the prime minister coming to Houston for this Howdy, Modi event is going to be very historic," said Joyce.

He said there could be some kind of agreement made on Sunday while in Houston.

"I think the trade agreement that you can potentially see happen at this is going to be historic. Of course tensions increased once we got into a bit of a trade war between the United States and India," said Joyce.

President Trump will then travel to Wapakoneta, Ohio, where he will be joined by Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia for a tour of a new, Australian-owned manufacturing facility. This visit will demonstrate the strong trade and investment relationship between the United States and Australia and President Trump’s successful efforts to restore the United States as the world’s leading destination for foreign direct investment
