Describing it as a”scene in Houston”, ” The Wall Street Journal stated Trump is expecting to pick up a more significant share of the growing voters’ bloc at 2020 than he did in 2016. Trump knows the advantage of associating with Indian Americans, whose gifts are critical to the prosperity of the countries in the 21st century,” it included.
The New York Times explained the rally came two leaders using similar fashions.
Both presented voters with a vision to earn their respective nations”great again”, and have fanned worries along spiritual, social and economic fault lines, it reported.
