In show of bond, Trump to join Modi in mass Houston rally

PRESIDENT Donald Trump will join Prime Minister Narendra Modi at a massive gathering of Indian-Americans in Houston, the White House said, in a symbolic show of the bond between the two leaders and countries.

The September 22 rally – dubbed, with a touch of Texan twang, “Howdy, Modi!” – will mark a rare joint appearance between a US president and a foreign leader before an ethnic community, and be the pair’s third meeting this year.
