During the climate change segment during the Presidential debate on October 22, US President Donald Trump used the word “filthy” to describe the quality of air in India, China and Russia. He used the said term while defending his decision to pull out of the Paris accord.
Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia, look at - India, it’s so filthy, the air is filthy.
The proverbial kick in the ass for #HowdyModi from #Dolundbhai Oh how they deserve each other, these 2 morons. Sorry @PMOIndia #SwachhBharat certificate not forthcoming from @realDonaldTrump pic.twitter.com/to8ofIoELL— Be the Change👊🏻 (@nandtara) October 23, 2020
Wait a minute! Weren't PM Trump and PM Modi friends? It sure seemed like it during the Namaste Trump tour event where our PM hosted the US President generously.
So, naturally, the US President's remarks were not taken well by fellow Indians who urged PM Modi for a rebuttal who is known to be Trumps ally.
Trump praises India with "filthy" tag. This is the guy you befriended while making enemies in all sides of South Asia. India is better off with new-age non-alignment. No need to hug anyone who doesn't respect you.— Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity) October 23, 2020
Wasted so much of funds on you,calling our country filthy with audacity and what are we going to do next time welcome you again blind folded. We should never be inviting him again as the India air is filthy as per him. #DonaldTrump #HowdyModi— Vaibhavi🔥 (@KBillbill86) October 23, 2020

1) Questions India’s COVID death toll
2) Says India sends dirt up into the air
India “ air is filthy “
3) Called India “ tariff king “
The result of “Howdy Modi “ !
